The Collection’s Signature Look: There’s a reason why Carolina Herrera is a household name, and her latest collection, set to the sounds of the London Contemporary Orchestra, gave amazing 40s-inspired silhouettes that weren’t afraid to bring a strong accentuation on the waist, along with a bit of softened, yet pronounced, shoulder definition. From carefully designed prints to elegant twists of fabric and the finest of sequin patterning, it’s clear to see that Herrera is a master of her craft, providing pieces that are at once fully recognized as signature Herrera opulence, but versatile enough to blend into the modern style aesthetic.
