A collaboration bringing a Latin vibe with femininity and radiance
Carolina Herrera has collaborated with the Colombian jewelry designer Mercedes Salazar for her Resort 2018 Collection featuring a playful summer-approved jewelry pieces. As Carolina Herrera is well known for her floral romantic dresses that radiate with femininity, the collection is perfectly accessorized with On the other hand hand-made jewelry pieces by Salazar.
“I find that Carolina Herrera’s designs have always maintained an exuberance that one can connect to the brand’s Latin roots. The Resort 2018 collection was inspired by the gardens of Carolina Herrera’s family home in Venezuela. My first point of inspiration is always the incredible flora and fauna of my native Colombia, so our visions of color and nature were easily aligned,” the Colombian designer said.
The Colombian designer created earrings and bracelets that perfectly complemented the colorful floral breeze in Carolina Herrera Resort 2018 collection.
“I wanted to create soft and light pieces to dance with the clothes,” Salazar explains.
The earrings that Mercedes Salazar created are eye-catching and massive but made of lightweight materials to compliment the light floral fabrics of Carolina Herrera’s designs. There are many large hoop earrings that feature small colorful balls of fabric placed one next to another. One of the most noticeable pieces is the mismatched pair of earrings that includes a big blue macaw bird outline earring and small discreet blue earring.
Salazar explained that she designed the collection for women who are fantastic and love tropical fiestas.
