CAROLINA HERRERA FALL WINTER / RESORT COLLECTION 2016/2017

By  |  0 Comments

Carolina Herrera put her best foot forward effectively resonating between monochromatic embellishment-free designs and more richly decorated numbers. It was so very much inspiring to get an eyeful of the designer’s game plan – a couple of versions all focused on elegant cutouts to be alternated by a smattering of rich embellishments and techniques.

So, an ivory crepe gown with keyhole neckline and billowy hems and that powdery pink midi flowing dress with plunging neckline and a row of buttons stretching down diagonally were to give way to a royal purple heart-shaped dress with straps and belly part done up with beaded geometrical embellishments and a unique combo of a mint green tulle skirt with multiple wavy layers and a black sparkling top.  To keep us warm and comfy during the cold seasons.  Carolina Herrera arrived at the furry decisions rendering out a series of caressing Russia-ready pieces – a platinum grey blouse, a silver grey vest or an impalpable jacket, each one of them worthy to head to a luxurious ceremony with.

Carolina Herrera is celebrating her 35th anniversary in business this year; in December she’s set to receive the Women’s Leadership Award at Lincoln Center’s Corporate Fund gala.

She has never been a designer much interested in the past. Just last season she said:

 “I want to see women looking beautiful, but in an actual way . . . I’m very pro new technology.”

But her new Resort collection does feel like a return to classic Herrera. Or maybe a better way to look at it is classic American sportswear. Not to say this appeared retro—that’s definitely something that Herrera isn’t interested in—but rather that it was refined down to its essence.

In recent seasons chez Herrera you’d occasionally encounter unusual embroideries, often with a futuristic feel. At their worst, the resulting clothes could feel fussy and quite contrary to Herrera’s personal dressing code, which is strict.

Here, Herrera simplified, very much for the better. There were thick, rugby-esque stripes on evening numbers: denim was dressed up and cut into a sheath dress: and evening separates were whipped up in glossy black sequins. Silhouette-wise, she embraced peplums and very generously cut high-waisted, wide-leg pants.

Herrera’s got a new back-room team. The Swarovski Award for Emerging Talent–nominated Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia of Monse signed on earlier this year.

Overall, the collection clearly denotes the label’s willingness to provide us with something to wear in our free time, whether we prefer fancier or more elegant kinds of fashions. It’s wearable and covetable, and the fact that it debuted on Snapchat surely creates a sort of momentum.

I’d say everyone is off to a strong start. Lincoln Center will be a very pretty place when Herrera’s nearest and dearest turn up in Resort’s frothy tulle evening looks to honor the designer.
