Carolina Herrera approached this bridal season with the premise that perhaps central to her business: “It should be very romantic and dreamy — it’s the most important day of the life of a woman, so there should be no trend — it should be timeless, totally timeless,” said Carolina Herrera at her spring show.
And timeless it was. The designer’s flair for elegance came though via chantilly and guipure laces on sleek silhouettes and through a selection of separates with pieces that can be mixed or matched with other possibilities; for example, a memorable tulle ballskirt paired with a delicately beaded knit, and a tuxedo pant paired with a chiffon romantic blouse. More traditionally, Herrera offered bow details on a flared sleeved off-the-shoulder dress or on the back of a lean and slightly flared column gown. Other highlights included a gorgeous satin slip with a grosgrain ribbon detail on the shoulder as well as a strapless silk faille ballgown with floral embroidered panels at the bodice and skirt.
“I designed this collection for today’s bride,” she concluded.
