Labels: Pre-Fall 2010 Collections
Style.com does the leg work:
"I wanted everything light as a feather," Carolina Herrera said about pre-fall. Where better to look for inspiration than the tango? The designer used a colorful 1920's print of dancers locked arm in arm for both a crepe de chine cocktail dress and a floor-length shirt gown, and its bold hues—lava red, dandelion yellow, and Directoire blue—informed the rest of a cheerful collection that played to the designer's strengths."
We don't know if we quite buy the "light as a feather" characterization since it's not how we would describe a collection of tailored looks, but there's definitely a lightness in tone here. It seems that she and her colleague Oscar de la Renta have rushed headlong into the economic doom and gloom and put out collections defiantly bright, feminine, and print heavy.
There really isn't a wrong note anywhere in this collection. Oh sure, it's somewhat standard in form and structure, but that's what you get with Carolina. You also get a refined sense of femininity and a classic sense of beauty. It's just pretty clothes. Period. Can't go wrong with that.
