Lodz, Poland – Focusing on creating a touch of mystery and alluring the audience, the legendary American fashion designer Carolina Herrera showed wowed all of New York City with the devilish work in her Spring/Summer 2016 collection.
The sexiness is very alive in each piece. The garments are in great taste showing the proper amount of skin. The silhouettes are of great proportion, with defined womanly curves and pronounced waist. With the collection oscillating between the sheer and flowing fabrics, the models recall of mysterious mermaids. This instinctively creates a lasting impression and makes one wonder, “Who’s That Girl”?
The garments for the Spring/Summer 2016 collection includes crop tops, skirts and dresses in all lengths: mini, midi and maxi. The silhouettes are long and focuses on the vertical, but with many layers created by mixed fabrics. The details one can see include collars, puffs, panels, front slits, pleats, A-line shapes and square or jewel necklines. The more dramatic eveningwear options are subtle shimmering, embroideries, ornamentation, textures and subtle detailing.
The fabrics use are mostly silk, technical fabrics, leather, cotton, tweed,organdie and chiffon. The color palette is a range of whites, pink, fuchsia, black, midnight blues and vermillion. This results in making the silhouettes appear more ethereal and the models magically fairy-like. The accessories added include long floral earring, sandals, rope belts and maxi eyeglasses.
The collection is classy, uncomplicated and so chic the calmer side of elegance.
