Carolina Herrera Resort 2016 Collection

Whole most of the cruise 2016 collection concentrate on easy and wearable clothing pieces and statement accessories, the latest Carolina Herrera resort 2016 collection is all about glamour, extravaganza and elegance. Breathtaking eveningwear is the primary focus of this divine collection, which uses bold and bright colors along with interesting patterns, appliqués and silhouettes utilized to inject a modern and feminine feel into the designs. And, of course, there are lots of feathers used being a favorite detail for Herrera, as she herself stated backstage. “It’s all about color and very simple shapes. Effortless,” she stated trying to explain the message behind these glamorous pieces, which might be meant for glam parties, but still do stand out with the simplicity in cuts and silhouettes this way adding a distinctive “effortless” allure to the overall lineup.

The idea of simplicity was exercised in the collection through the use of minimalist proportions and clean cuts, as well as mostly monochrome designs that came adorned with floral and feather appliqués. The color palette is lush and bold featuring lots of sky blues, muted reds, corals and energizing lemon hues that are skillfully contrasted with white or black for a higher impact. In addition, there are a couple of pieces using the timeless duo of black and white, being the ideal pieces for those, who feel more comfortable in classic muted shades. And if the floral and feather appliqués wouldn’t be adorning the dresses, there are still the prints using the same motifs, some put in oversized forms, while others being uniformly splattered along the length of the pieces.

The overall Carolina Herrera cruise 2016 can be divided into two distinctive groups, one comprising solely posh red carpet worthy gowns, while the other one focusing on more “daytime” and cocktail looks. Talking about the latter, we should single out the tea-length skirts and strapless mini dresses, the perfectly tailored printed culottes matched with monochrome tops, the A-line dresses coming in different shades and prints, as well as the lightweight jacquard skirt suits being the timeless pieces to be added to your office wardrobes. Silk, tweed and cotton are the main fabrics used in this range, while the color palette is mostly about lime and coral tones.

Of course, the first thing that catches the eye in the collection is the range of evening gowns, including the light blue ball skirt and the cropped top with the black carnation appliqué on the waist that will appeal to the modern women, as well as the breathtaking full-skirt strapless lemon gown with black feathery details, the more laid-back and modest plain dresses and the tea-length skirt coming teamed with a black lace crop top. Generally, whether it’s about daywear or eveningwear, classic silhouettes and Hererra’s femininity collide with modern details, making the collection perfect both for fans of timeless elegant fashions and those seeking for more innovative and fresh designs!
