Carolina Herrera

It’s rare that a show can give me chills. But Carolina Herrera did just that. Inspired by traditional Korean garb and 18th century botanical plates, the designer presented a spring collection fit for Asian royalty. Straw hats, typically worn by men in Korea, created a dramatic silhouette while large barrettes secured the models slicked back hair. There were vibrant prints, some of birds, others of flowers, complete with the botanical name written in calligraphy. Asian influences were abundant on obibows and origami skirts. And the pleating and folds of organza, silk and jacquard showed Herrera’s veteran designing skills. When the models lined the front row, my absolute fave current catwalker, Lily Donaldson, stopped in front of me in my favorite crystal embroidered gown in the show. The designer took her final bow in her signature white button down and I was left with goosebumps.
