This season was the first time I attended a Carolina Herrera’s show in New York and it was totally worth it!
Starting with the venue called The Shed located at Hudson Yards. The place was simple, but beautiful and minimalist in a special way. Everything was white so the bright colors from the pieces could pop up and contrast, and the light radiating through the massive glass enclosure looked lovely.
The guests were seated all around the runway where the models walked creating a big circle.
I loved the whole collection, even though Carolina is no longer the one in charge of the brand. She assigned the creative director position to Wes Gordon two years ago and he’s given the house a fresh appearance with more youthful looks. Because of this, Carolina was sitting as an spectator.
The bright colors transmitted a lot of positive energy to all the ambiance. Wes is definitely trying to conserve Carolina Herrera’s essence by bringing elegant, feminine and romantic looks to the runway, proposing amazing silhouettes with exaggerated ruffles, huge sleeves, different proportions, and experimental draped fabrics that give a fresh vibe to the whole brand.
The collection is mostly composed by dresses and long capes in bright colors such as yellow, orange, blue, and white, and I think Gordon made capes not only desirable, but also practical for this season. I loved the bird earirngs and the rope belts tied with knots that gave it a more informal and relaxed esthetic.
My look for the show was a very elegant black suit with a beautiful detail of ruffles on the waist matching a black and white clutch and to give it a more fun appearance, I wore pink plastic shoes. For my hairstyle I wore a low ponytail and a beautiful ribbon with pearls, that is one of my favorite accessories.
I’m really enjoying all the shows and sometimes frantic activity here in NY! And there’s so much more to come yet, so stay with me!
