Carolina Herrera Fall/Winter 2013-2014 RTW – New York Fashion Week

Elegance and fabulousness are the keywords for Carolina Herrera, who knows how to make her creations be the shining stars at New York Fashion Week. The newest Carolina Herrera fall/winter 2013-2014 collection is filled with forties vibes, glamour and sexiness, features that guarantee a super-charming fall for the wearer. “Capriccio for Carolina” is the name of the collection, which was actually the show’s soundtrack, a five-minute classical music composed by Tom Hodge specially for the designer. Exactly it served as the source of inspiration behind the Carolina Herrera fall/winter 2013-2014 collection.

Herrera describer her muse, that is the song, as “perfect because it starts soft, and then it goes in crescendo. Just like I’m trying to do with the show. Soft looks at the beginning and then crescendo! All the drama. Then there’s romance. Then there is melancholia.”
Like a light classical song, the Carolina Herrera fall/winter 2013-2014 collection brought an array of dresses and gowns with structured shoulders and belted waists that highlighted the perfect silhouette of the models. They were then followed by gloomier daywear looks, featuring fur, leather and darker shades. There were skirt suits and wide-legged pant ones, little dresses, delicate silk shirts with a pussy-cat bow attached to the neckline, elegant skirts and chic outerwear.
Fur played a great role in the Carolina Herrera fall/winter 2013-2014 collection. The designer attached the fabric to quite unexpected pieces and places, showing how versatile and fabulous luxurious fur can be. Especially amazing was the forest green jacket with fur insertions.
The Carolina Herrera fall/winter 2013-2014 show was closed the same dramatic way, as it opened: with ground-skimming gowns. These came in plum and berry hues, while some featured abstract patterns. Having retro twisted updos and wearing quite minimal makeup, the models at Carolina Herrera radiated sophistication and classiness. Can anyone now say that fall fashion is boring?
