Digital Coverage of MBNYFW Day 5: Carolina Herrera

Watching Carolina Herrera’s fashon show was well worth it, the collection was very impressive. The color palette used was broad, which is a good thing, shades of tan, black, white, gray, brown, green, dusty rose, burgundy, eggplant purple, light blue, red, royal blue, and navy blue were all brought together in a collection of dresses, evening gowns, and separates.  Some of which were embellished; either by fur trim, beading, or sequins. Fur was used in some coats and other pieces. The draping found in some of the dresses and gowns was exquisite, one dress being ruched in the midriff.

All of the gowns were form fitting, they showed off the feminine form with grace and class. A pleated skirt was in one look, while another look had flared pants. A bomber jacket was seen in a look, and palazzo pants were also seen in one look. Belts were prominent whether they be used on dresses or separates as Carolina Herrera made them as a part of her collection in some looks. A floor-length skirt and a pencil skirt were other skirts in the collection, and a few looks were actually pantsuits.

One particular pantsuit was made of tweed and a dress was made of tweed. One dress had sheer fabric inlay, a few had keyhole necklines, some even had puff sleeves, and one was a halter gown. Velvet was used in a few looks, primarily dresses and a few separates. One dress in particular had a front slit, and one other look had a plunging neckline. I loved her collection overall.

If I had the money to do so, I’d purchase every look from the entire line. Overall, the collection took me back to the late 1930s-the 1940s with a supper club feel to it. To view the collection, click on this link at style.com: http://www.style.com/fashionshows/complete/slideshow/F2013RTW-CHERRERA
