Quite a glamorous affair at Carolina Herrera. No one quite does old school glamour as well as this dame of fashion. Every piece, every collection is full of elegance. For Spring 2011, she experiments with an Asian motif as models sashay down the runway in cheek-grazing wide-brimmed hats, wide-leg trousers elegantly knotted at the waist, and intricately clipped hair. And Carolina Herrera takes print to a whole new level. The intricacies of the flowers on the dresses alone indicated a meticulous attention to detail. What I love absolutely love is her interpretation of neutrals. Of course there some beautifully crafted clean black and white looks, but the ones that truly stand out are the one with the tiniest strip of color. It’s not big and it’s not conspicuous, but it’s the perfect touch.
Moreover, Carolina Herrera has a wonderful eye for color. She manages to pick color with such vividness that I can’t help but stare at it. They truly stand out against a more neutral palette. Not to mention, Carolina Herrera harolds the return of my favorite Asian model: Du Juan. As much as I love Liu Wen, Tao Okamoto, and Shu Pei Qin, Du Juan has always been my favorite. And I’m glad to see her back.
