Carolina Herrera created a very feminine Resort 2018 collection. The women who nurture an elegant style will fall in love with literally every piece of the collection. Carolina Herrera got inspired by the floral gardens at her family residence in La Vega, Caracas. That’s why the collection is full of floral prints, embellishments and vivid colors.
“I call it ‘a conversation between flowers.’ I have a lot of colors. You see all the flowers together and they all go together beautifully, no?” – the designer said.
The colors of the collection are very diverse, bright and fun to combine. From beautiful pastels, vivid electric tones to neutral colors, there is a design in everyone’s favorite color. Additionally, the palette of the Resort 2018 Collection offers a great mix-and-match freedom. The designs radiate optimism and happiness.
The floral designs are dominating in the collection. The different prints include pink peonies and ranunculus, white and purple sweet peas and yellow wattles. The diverse designs allow everyone to find their floral match. There are beautiful floral midi dresses perfect for both everyday and formal occasions. Carolina Herrera also created mesmerizing voluminous maxi skirts with motives from her family garden.
The floral romantic gowns are made for the ladies who want to accent their sensuality and femininity.
The floral motives are present through the entire collection as embroideries, prints, and 3D details. Most of the mesmerizing gowns from the Resort 2018 Collection feature eye-catching 3D floral embellishments. They are either placed through the entire gown or on strategic parts.
Besides the prints that Carolina Herrera stole from her garden, we could notice a lot of designs with stripes. The Resort 2018 collection is full of maxi dresses and elegant gowns that feature horizontal and vertical stripes. If you are not a fan of the floral motives definitely take a look at these charming dresses.
The solid designs feature color-blocking elements and wide belts. Carolina Herrera included wide eye-catching belts in a lot of the designs announcing their huge comeback.
Most of the shapes in the collection are simple but feature heavy embellishments and playful prints. Carolina’s goal was to include wearable designs because as she said: “Resort should never be complicated.” There are for sure designs that are reserved only for glamorous events but most of the creations are very comfortable and fun to wear.
