Herrera’s collection this fall was both simple and elegant, with touches of classicism and a youthful nonchalant attitude. It was filled with the perfect looks for almost any affair. But the best thing of all? It was super wearable!
“It’s a very uncomplicated silhouette,” said Carolina Herrera. “To me, the less complicated, the more modern. Sometimes, when things are too complicated, they belong in the circus!”
Herrera went for a streamlined and crisp look with lots of polish. The opening series of looks were based on a Herrera classic: the white blouse. Her tops came with sashes, velvet ribbon accents or tiny cotton pearls embroidered in silvery lines down sleeves that were enhanced with just the right amount of volume. A few evoked prairie or gaucho hints (this was echoed elsewhere with a regal woolen cape.)
There was an uptown-casual feel in evening, as well. Another dress was bodied with pale pink crepe and featured a rose gold sequined front. It almost reminded one of a tight and long sleeved tee. A trio of bows in velvet across the shoulders added a touch of classicism. One sequined tea gown had an easy and relaxed vibe, whilst little bell sleeves and a deep-V neckline gave it a youthful sense of nonchalance. The closing dress was a lo-fi but high-impact navy velvet, open-back gown with chiffon knotted at the neck.
There were also plenty of classic leather jackets, ballet skirts, wraparound dresses and ballfown skirts to choose from.
The color palette was red, black, white, pink, beige, blue and gold. All very classic and staple colors in a woman’s wardobe!
All in all? A 4 stars effort!
