It so happened that the autumn-winter collection of the famous fashion house Carolina Herrera was presented in New York at Fashion Week on Valentine's Day. The models defiled to the musical accompaniment of Habanera, the aria L'amour est un oiseau rebelle (Love is a rebellious bird) from G. Bizet's opera Carmen. The music, in which the Spanish theme sounded, helped the models to plunge into the world of a romantic country with its songs and dances. The girls demonstrated outfits with special grace, with proudly straightened shoulders, heads held high.
This year, the chair of the creative director of the brand was taken by Wes Gordon, who had previously worked for the fashion house as a creative consultant for almost a year. And as you can see, the creative baton has been handed over to reliable hands. Today Carolina Herrera is proud of his success, Wes Gordon continued the tradition of the fashion house. And in the latest collection, the emotional image of the founder of the brand is especially felt. Wes Gordon was among the first to bring a white shirt (the brand's calling card) to the catwalk, paired with a fuchsia-colored skirt, with a wide belt emphasizing the waist.
All images of the collection are gentle and romantic, feminine and mysterious. Puffy sleeves and skirts, fitted silhouettes, bows, flounces and frills - all the elements that are necessary in the image of a Spanish beauty, and correspond to the traditions of the house.
But Wes Gordon also makes a choice in favor of new trends, which will undoubtedly attract the attention of a younger audience. For example, a deep neckline, which is cutouts on the chest in the form of a heart, capes, a catsuit with a large floral print, blouses and jackets with hyper voluminous sleeves, puffy skirts and short dresses.
Then the models showed tight, tight skirts and maxi skirts with trains, and finally, stunning evening dresses, where Wes Gordon let his imagination run wild.
A palette of white, black, red, combined with delicate pink or rich purple and blue hues, bright orange outfits with sparkling rhinestones - the images changed one after another. And all this, we can say with confidence, we will see soon on the next red carpet.
Carolina Herrera fashion accessories
Of the accessories and other details in the images, there are small handbags, wide belts that emphasize the waist, flower necklaces, fragile pumps, sandals with a closed cape and a mischievous ruffle-like strap, over the knee boots.
“Elegance is a whole combination of different things. It has nothing to do with beauty or money, but it is important to know what suits you. If I like something at Zara, H&M or any other similar store, I will buy it. I like to combine different things,” says Carolina Herrera.
