Both designers target modern confident women who love details. Therefore Carolina Herrera’s decision to ask Mercedes Salazar to design a jewelry collection for her Resort 2018 floral collection seemed like a natural choice. Salazar accepted the invitation for the collaboration with no hesitation.

“I find that Carolina Herrera’s designs have always maintained an exuberance that one can connect to the brand’s Latin roots. The Resort 2018 collection was inspired by the gardens of Carolina Herrera’s family home in Venezuela. My first point of inspiration is always the incredible flora and fauna of my native Colombia, so our visions of color and nature were easily aligned,” the Colombian designer tells InStyle.

I wanted to create soft and light pieces to dance with the clothes,” Salazar explains.
