We all have currently the fantasy of escaping to the French or Italian Riviera as guests to a fairytale wedding or a glam birthday party, and in that case, the Carolina Herrera Resort 2023 collection got you covered. Elegant dresses, ensembles, and separates are destined for a cosmopolitan getaway.
Creative Director Wes Gordon came up for this season with a cute cherry motif printed on cotton, leopard-print creations for maximum impact, oversized florals, and reinvented pinstripe-motif creations that deviate far from their mannish references.
Voluminous details such as puff sleeves, billowy skirts, and gathered tulle trains speak of a maximalist attitude. Vibrant evening gowns in delicious garden-bloom shades are what a true springtime vision is made of.
Criss-cross shoulder straps accented with slim structured bows or flowers are ultra-chic and youthful. They have a delicate quality but also a well-defined shape.
Wide-brim hats and oversized buckle belts reawake the diva in you. Belts create the signature Carolina Herrea silhouette consisting of a crisp poplin shirt and a flared, structured midi skirt. The evolution of this collared shirt is now one with an attached hood which is a quite refreshing detail. It combines the cool attitude of a hood with the retro elegance of the head scarf like those Grace Kelly is remembered to be wearing.
Many creations have lighter internal support than previously, a modern evolution of the look that gives you added comfort. Sleeves and skirts are billowy but not stiff. The approach is fashion-forward always within the codes of the fashion house. Some asymmetrically draped tops are even more modern than archival work dictates.
The collection is designed for the lady who wants to be festive and glamorous again. She will wear her elegantly embellished special-occasion looks, have an updo, and ethereal makeup, and enjoy mingling with equally well-dressed friends!
