Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

Carolina Herrera stayed true to her aesthetic in her pre-fall 2016 collection, creating clothes not conforming to any particular season. With this mentality, the designer was able to create a collection of stunning clothes for any event year round. Because of this, the designs were able to focus on what women need, without basing it on any particular seasonal trend.

Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

Going into the design process, Herrera had a clear plan to keep things simple and straightforward, a beautiful idea, especially since it was executed so well. With Herrera’s non-seasonal clothes, it is much easier to host the garments in your wardrobe, since you know they carry a lot of versatility. You could open your wardrobe and see all of the possible pieces, without having to limit yourself to what works well for summer or winter, or whatever season is at hand.

None of this means the clothes themselves are simple, however. The elegance of the eveningwear and the flirty feminine daywear coexisted in an extravagant state, where the garments didn’t have to sacrifice creativity and exuberance to become more versatile; they were the best of both words in that realm. Simple silhouettes were revamped to be bolder and more extravagant, while embroidery was used to ramp up the excitement to other pieces.

Because of this boost, a lot of pieces in the Carolina Herrera pre-fall 2016 collection were classic silhouettes, with modern twists to create an interesting edge. The designer took simple white button-down shirts, and gave them sleek, enlarged sleeve to create a unique sophistication to be paired with flirty skirts A-line skirts.

Another quirky method used for the photoshoot of this collection was featuring two looks in one photo. Each set would share some likenesses, so it appeared easy for the designer to pair up two outfits to be featured together.

One set of outfits was grey and black outerwear, both styled as dresses. The looks, because of the fabric and the purpose, made a perfect cohesion, because the jackets were distinctly different from one another. One was a long, classic coat with a lapel, and the other was more of a shell, with a higher neck and was more oversized. These were the types of pairings chosen by the designer, and the result was intriguing and fabulous.

In similar fashion, a pair of outfits with the same abstract blue leaf pattern showed two different outfits carrying an acute cohesion. One look being edgy separates, perfect for a party, while the other was a drop-dead gorgeous floor-length gown.

The focus on gowns was a remarkable trait to the Carolina Herrera pre-fall 2016 line-up. The style varied from one to the other, not staying static to one particular fashion sense. This makes the entire line more diverse to customers, since the looks cater to multiple taste levels for different women. It wouldn’t be surprising to see any of these looks on a red carpet, but it would definitely cause an interesting stir.
