The Carolina Herrera woman is definitely a classy, cosmopolitan personality. Backstage after her exhibit, the custom said that her Planting season femme was dynamic and overseas, stopping in France 1 day and South America another. This spirit shone through in some of the collection’s more youthful, sporty wares, as an embellished black clothing with meshlike tulle detailing and a boxy, ivory suede frock with strict-but-subtle sheer insets.
Planting season ’14, however, was decidedly evening-centric in comparison to the latest Herrera outings. While there were in regards to a dozen fluid gowns delivered down the catwalk this morning, the designer offered simply a small number of trousers and concentrated considerably more on ladylike cocktail frocks and swooshing floor-size dresses than daytime separates. Most likely this had something regarding her motivation. While dreaming up her Planting season prints and silhouettes, Herrera referenced kinetic art, specifically the task of Venezuelan performers Carlos Cruz-Diez and Jesús Rafael Soto. She translated the movement’s graphic lines into geo-prints, which came out in chocolate, citrus, and plum on skirts and dresses as well as on the organza overlays. Because they swished down the catwalk, Herrera’s layered lines made mesmerizing optical illusions. “When you layer the materials such as this, it becomes a whole visual encounter,” she said. Without doubt, it could be tricky to achieve the same effect with basic suiting or separates.
