When I saw that Carolina Herrera‘s Fall 2016 collection would be debuted at a jewel-box museum, I knew that the clothes would follow suit.
Sure enough, they did. Herrera presented her show at the Frick; a location in New York City that used to be the home of Gilded Age industrialist Henry Clay. Just like the collection was shown in a mansion from the Gilded Age, its overall aesthetic was gilded, too. This is why I consider Carolina Herrera to be one of my NYFW runway favorites.
Some of my favorite aspects of her collection included the rich colors like plum, the ravishing 3-D textures and the elegant use of fur. Every model in this show looked like an ethereal goddess, perhaps just deciding to grace the ground of earth with her presence.
But, there is one look in this collection that I love more than the rest (I didn’t think that would be possible, either): the streetwear outfit that features white, high-waisted trousers, a secretary blouse and a cape-like coat. I love this look because it is certainly a departure from the rest of the collection, yet it still fits the theme. Somehow, Herrera was still able to capture the peaceful elegance of rich, flowing dress in a much more accessible look.
I mean, how fabulous would you feel strutting down a street in that?
All in all, Herrera crafted a collection that would transform any woman into a goddess.
