NYC Fashion Week

Carolina Herrera is one of the most glamorous and brightly shining stars at NYC Fashion Week, but her ravishing ball gowns also steal the limelight at Hollywood’s biggest award shows. In Washington, Venezuelan-born Herrera has dressed trendsetting First Ladies from Jackie to Michelle. Herrera’s success isn’t new, but the pieces from her Pre-Fall 2013 Collection definitely deserve some time in the spotlight. Lucy Liu and A-list celebs have been spotted in several elegant gowns from her newly released collection, so we’ve been wondering what will Carolina Herrera do for her Fall 2013 Collection.

 

What’s Next For Carolina Herrera?

Jumping from her personal 2013 Pre-Fall Collection based on the theme “Night and Day,” Herrera’s latest designs are fancy, elegant, fun and retro all over. Her current collection effortlessly incorporates timeless graphic patterns and stunning solid colors, including ruby reds, persimmon, lime green and midnight blue. She retains her hallmark silhouettes and the glamorous, well-tailored cuts that make her designs so classic. Herrera’s haute couture style allows her to create phenomenal garments using cozy cool-weather materials. Her Fall 2013 Collection is sure to feature pieces that represent her uncompromising, classic sense of style.

 

Pants

Going against the trend of jeggings and ridiculous skinny jeans, Carolina Herrera is revamping wide-leg pants, giving them a flattering streamlined appearance and adding her signature touches. Other winter wear pieces shown include tailored slacks and tapered pants cut from taffeta and shimmering fabrics. Trendy large-scale houndstooth prints and subtle lacy overlay patterns punch up these classically styled designer pants.

 

Skirts

Carolina Herrera’s latest collections aren’t only classic, they are comprehensive. Her retro-inspired designs include fitted pencil skirts, structured mid-length skirts and fit-and-flare garments that have a charming retro silhouette. Everyone loves Carolina Herrera’s dresses, and her current skirts keep the best features of her flattering, curve-hugging patterns.

Dresses

Dresses are the foundation of this brand, and Carolina Herrera’s Pre-Fall Collection is packed full of dazzling gowns and luxurious feminine frocks that have elements from the 40s, 50s and 60s. All of her classic designs are embellished with lovely, tasteful details. Many of the recently unveiled dresses feature tightly tailored waistlines defined by decorative belts and ribbon accents that emphasize the garment’s flattering structure.

 

From the evidence at hand, Carolina Herrera’s Fall 2013 Collection will embody her signature style with chic fitted ensembles for the decades. Fans who attend NYC Fashion Week for her February 11th show and those who hit stores later in the season will be treated to a feast of classically styled fashions that are trendy and, more importantly, timeless.
