Though the temperature outside dipped into the single digits, spring was in the Lincoln Center air at Carolina Herrera’s Fall 2015 show. The runway overflowed with silk jersey fabrics and embellished gowns, many of which would be perfect for the red carpet!
Romantic ruffled details and gorgeous marbled patterns made waves at Carolina Herrera on Feb. 16 at Lincoln Center in New York City during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Ms. Herrera was inspired by the water element, and this came across quite clearly in the collection’s swirling ocean tones of blue and grey, as well as the multi-dimensional fabrics. Tweed and silk combinations played with texture and gave off a luxe, liquid effect. The entire show was stunning from start to finish, which is no surprise– and Karlie Kloss opened and closed the show.
Carolina Herrera’s Fall 2015 Collection — PICS:
No smoke or mirrors were found at Ms. Herrera’s show; just a simplistic, traditional runway that allowed the clothes to be the focus — and they were beyond gorgeous!
Karlie stepped out in a beautiful water print, silk jacquard cocktail dress before later changing into a periwinkle cloud jacquard gown with a deep ocean silk faille top. Sky met sea as the show progressed, and the models seemed to float as they walked to upbeat piano music that echoed throughout the room.
The front row was almost as exciting as the runway, with Ivanka Trump,Dianna Agron and Olivia Palermo front and center, taking in the latest looks from the designer. Any of the techno or wavy-print dresses would be perfect for Dianna, and Olivia would absolutely rock one of the fur-trimmed jackets or embroidered cocktail dresses!
I may be biased– I’m a huge Karlie Kloss fan– but her second gown was my favorite of the show. The off-the-shoulder black top faded into a magnificent cloud-print ruffled skirt, and there were more than a few gasps of delight surrounding her entrance. Other standouts were a graphic, houndstooth-jacquard gown and a blue silk wave dress. Ms. Herrera herself kept it classy when she emerged in a white button-down blouse and black a-line skirt to take her bow — her signature look never disappoints.
