The American house synonymous with class, style and elegance, reimagines each season with the modern woman in mind. For the Caroline Herrera Pre-Fall 2018 collection, the designer featured color, print, and embellishment with extra gusto this season.
“This is a happy house,” said Carolina Herrera of the only response for her brand was to embrace happiness.
The red shade of a trim coat and a long evening dress was redder, and the fuchsia of soft suede separates was similarly insistent. Even the dark denim pieces, which were otherwise understated, were top stitched in rainbow-hued threads.
Herrera said she looked at Flemish floral paintings for inspiration. As such, there was an exuberance of flowers: printed dahlias on a flowing evening dress, showy plastic lilies stitched to the waistband of a princess coat, and charming jewel-like lilies of the valley adorning the pockets of a puff-shouldered black blazer. The flower prints, in particular, had a fresh, youthful quality, more than likely because they appeared on fluid, unstructured chiffon and georgette.
