LONDON — “I like a mix of comfortable and pretty — but nothing froufrou,” said Carolina Herrera Jr., describing her vision for children’s wear from a cozy chair at the new CH Carolina Herrera store on Mount Street here. “When I was little, I was always in a pristine dress — I had to be changed five times a day.”
The younger Herrera swished into London from Spain, where she lives, for one night to check out the new store, which had a soft opening this week. She said, going forward, she’ll be playing a bigger role in the children’s wear collection. The mother of three said for fall, the collection would feature toggle coats, dresses and lots of trousers for girls.
