Carolina Herrera Spring 2013 Collection
There are rarely any surprises in a Carolina Herrera show. Like Oscar de la Renta, she is a sturdy, mountainous, immoveable figure in fashion; one who can be relied upon to consistently reinforce old school femininity and glamour and turn out beautiful collections filled with beautiful pieces. Never a wrong step with that one. But along with all the expected beautiful looks, we did find reason to be a little surprised. Her extensive use of digital prints shows a real sense of modernity, and we liked the crispness of some of these looks coming from a designer with a penchant for the flowing and dramatic. We love the jacket and jacket-dress with piping, as well as the color-blocking with prints and the spray painted stencil effect with sequins. At the end of the day – and every day – Carolina’s going to serve up beauty on a platter and it’s no different this time.
