Carolina Herrera x Mercedes Salazar Jewelry Collection

Carolina Herrera collaborated with the Colombian jewelry designer Mercedes Salazar for her Resort 2018 Collection. The collaboration resulted in playful summer-approved jewelry pieces. Carolina Herrera is well known for her floral romantic dresses that radiate with femininity. On the other hand, Mercedes Salazar is popular for her out of this world hand-made jewelry pieces. The Colombian designer often times gets inspired by elements from nature. Her designs feature exotic bird and fruit motives in multiple vibrant colors.

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.

Carolina Herrera Resort 2018 Collection carries a strong Latin vibe and Mercedes Salazar added even more of it with her unique jewelry pieces. She created earrings and bracelets that perfectly complemented the colorful floral breeze in Carolina Herrera Resort 2018 collection.

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