Within the striking vicinity of the renowned Whitney Museum of American Art, designed by Renzo Piano, the Herrera woman makes her presence known with urban sophistication. The collection, inspired by the timeless allure and relaxed glamour of iconic American figure Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy, offers a seamless way of dressing, enriched with the dynamism of New York by Creative Director Wes Gordon.
The designs are characterized by crisp, bold, assertive lines, contrasted by enchanting patterns in delicate shades and charming florals. The collection starts and concludes with a refreshed signature Herrera cotton shirt, initially matched with a meticulously tailored black pencil skirt, and concluding with a dazzling silver skirt adorned with hand-stitched sequins.
The daytime attire exudes refined grace, without compromising on the distinctive Herrera touch or dramatic flair. Sleek knits, pencil skirts, and kitten heels on polished floors reflect fashion trends from the late 90s. Transparent lace pieces and sleek cotton polka dot dresses become essential elements of a summer collection.
Carolina Herrera always places immense value on color, and this season is a celebration of subdued tones animated with lively mixes. A flawlessly draped dress in gentle lilac silk gracefully contours the body, while matching shirt and miniskirt ensembles offer a standout daily look. Sunshine-yellow items become the focal point, exemplified by impeccably structured jackets and airy tulle skirts, manifesting the epitome of American elegance.
Black, synonymous with subtlety, is far from mundane, showcased in refined separates, lightweight gowns with floral embroidery, and a checkered crepe dress. A captivating satin trench gown reveals a glimpse of leg with each step.
This season, the Carolina Herrera woman reinterprets the essence of simplicity, showcasing feminine power and the spirit of New York, while maintaining the delight of personal style.
