Spring has never been felt in any collection like it was felt in Herrera’s SS17. On the occasion of her 35th business anniversary, Carolina Herrera strikes with a collection that stands out in every way. Not like any other, the SS17 is an enthralling mix between Carolina’s career highlights and a modern touch, a certain then and now, that recalls the blossoming season in every detail.
Reading between the lines and cuts of her dresses reveals the main inspiration behind this collection, which is no doubt “the woman of today”. It seems like in every one of her creations, Herrera tries to preserve her timeless style without nonetheless challenging it with a sophisticated, fashion-forward touch.
Distinguished by the floral signature, most of Herrera’s bridal gowns are meticulously worked with beautiful flower motif appliqués and re-embroidered lace layered over nude tulle. Even if used so many times, it’s amazing how this particular touch of floral highlights the effortless elegance and femininity that the designer tries to focus on. Combining exquisite fabrics with unique details and an unrivalled craftsmanship, Carolina’s spring collection explores romance like never before.
Embracing timeless grace and Carolina’s everlasting classic flair, the 2017collection imposes its simplicity in the most sophisticated way, mixing traditional with modern refinement, staying true to the house’s style while pleasing the woman of today.
A closer look reveals the main highlights of the collection: a clean-cut strapless, oversized bows, transparent tulle, embroidered lace, floral appliqués, beaded illusion necklines and sleeves, plunging backs, and a whole lot of glamour. The wedding dress collection’s inspiration seems to stem as well from Herrera’s signature ready-to-wear styles, particularly her menswear collection, looking at the white blouse cut and the ivory silk crepe pant and top combination.
