As if we needed an excuse to send more mail, the United States Postal Service is honoring the late Oscar de la Renta with a series of commemorative Forever stamps. Sold as a pane of 11, the stamps include one stamp featuring a black-and-white portrait of the designer taken by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin accompanied by ten more highlighting his iconic designs.
The commemorative stamps go on sale Thursday, February 16, so mark your calendars and start planning your trip to the post office. If you just so happen to be in New York on the release date (lucky you!), the fashion house will be hosting a First-Day-of-Issue Stamp Dedication Ceremony at 11 a.m. at Vanderbilt Hall in Grand Central Terminal, which is open to the public. Hillary Clinton is confirmed to speak at the event.
The only question we have now is, how many stamps are they making? Because we have a feeling we are going to need to buy them by the case…
