(NEW YORK) Carolina Herrera's eveningwear is no doubt the highest-profile department of her line (especially come award season, or any Renee Zellweger premiere), but for spring we were reminded of her skill in daywear and separates. Herrera was inspired by woven Japanese baskets, which meant shorts, cropped jackets, and even strapless gown in gorgeous rope-weave jacquard linen - understated glamour at its best. Of course, the collection wasn't lacking in formal elements: tea-length dresses were a fresh alternative to the classic evening looks (an ivory raffia version on Lily Donaldson was a standout), gowns in caramel chiffon were treated to look like a jacquard and a stunning violet basket-weave jacquard one-shoulder gown made for another lovely showing from Ms. Herrera.
