2009 June 4
(NEW YORK) Carolina Herrera is capitalizing on the high notes hit with her Fall 2009 collection, and the house's Resort offerings overflowed with even more of those elegantly perfect gowns that continue to enchant those who search for such fare. "This collection is very sleek and elongated," Herrera explained. "I wanted to really focus on all the quieter colors like the grays and the silvers and add a pop of my favorite color at the moment, which is orange. And I’ve tried to utilize a new way of embroidery to make everything seem more fresh and modern." A crop of sexy orange dresses, including a lace-sleeved sheath and floor-grazing gown with a smattering of beading, are undisputable hits, while graphic floral prints in black and white proved a nice counterpoint to slim grey suiting. A nipped floral jacket is one of those timeless pieces that few CH aficionados will be able to resist. And long, silvery gowns offer an updated take on evening for the woman that requires it each season. "I’m very optimistic," Herrera concluded. "I think we’re just inspired to once again produce realistic clothes for women to buy."
