Always touted as one of the most anticipated shows during Fashion Week, Carolina Herrera did not disappoint.
Front row, The High Profile Elite – Vogue triumvirate Anna Wintour, Grace Coddington and Andre Leon Talley, as well as Hal Rubenstein (Fashion Director, InStyle), Robbie Myers (Editor-in-Chief, Elle), Glenda Bailey (Editor-in-Chief, Harper’s Bazaar), Joe Zee (Creative Director, Elle) and Nina Garcia (Fashion Director, Marie Claire).
Backstage before the show, Carolina told us that she was most excited about the return of bright, “happy” colors for Spring, as well as very feminine, voluminous skirts – both integral to her Spring line.
The collection blended inspirations from both botanicals and a unique icon – a Korean man’s field hat. Floral prints and flat ribbons punched up the primarily white, ginger and green palette. High-waisted trousers, billowing evening gowns and streamlined cocktail options all made equal appearances. Another running theme came in the form of small, rectangular “plaques,” which started as garment and accessory embellishments, and ended up adorning the models ‘dos and shoes as well.
