I know, you probably expected me to write more. But this was the only thing that that popped up on my mind when I looked at the new Resort 2021 collection by Carolina Herrera for the first time. Okay, let me start again.
Carolina Herrera and her fashion career reflect a lifestyle that fits New York's Upper East Side full of luxury and refined elegance. Simple cuts, distinctive waist, emphasis on feminine beauty, but always in line with the pontoon. No wonder many American first ladies wore her collections, including Laura Bush and Michelle Obama. The distinguished Venezuelan used the combination of basic elements (such as white shirts), vibrant colors and interesting patterns to create intriguing models. At the same time, Carolina Herrera never forget to highlight the charm of the female figure. Women look really great in her models.
Wes Gordon, the brand's creative director since 2018, who designed the Resort 2021 pre-season collection, returns to this legacy. At the same time, however, he transfers elegance and charm to everyday clothes, not reserved only for privileged New Yorkers. And he did an amazing job. Come and see for yourselves:
Dresses that underline the elegant silhouette
If we should name one feature that's characteristic for Herrera, it would be an emphasis on femininity and graceful female curves. This collection is no exception. I can't forget to mention the interesting cuts of the dresses, skirts and jumpsuits in navy blue, which can easily be combined with many different types of accessories. Personally, I really love universal pieces. However, the absolute TOP in this category, at least in my opinion, is a little black dress in the style of Audrey Hepburn. Its attributes meet good decorum, but the sensual neckline shows that even midi dresses with long sleeves can be very sexy. And how else to celebrate the beauty of the female figure? For a special occasion, definitely by wearing one of these gorgeous long dresses. Remember when Cinderella entered the hall where the ball was held? That's exactly how it must feel like to wear one of these luxury dresses...
You can't have too many polka dots
Do you like polka dots? If you do, you'll be thrilled about these models. Again, the black and white color combination leaves space for interesting accessories of different colors, which can be alternated according to your mood. What's more, the waste range of cuts guarantees that women of all shapes and sizes can choose their dream outfit. Polka dots are also a good choice if you want to cover up some of your apparent imperfections. So which model do you like the most? I give my vote right to the first one, the short ruffled cocktail dress!
Don't be afraid of combining colors and patterns
The orange jumpsuit with distinctive flowers will definitely attract the attention of every passer-by! No need to be afraid. If you really want to stand out from the crowd, this combination of patterns and vibrant colors is a must! Also worth noting is the canary-yellow midi dress with bare shoulders, which totally pops. And you know what, why not pair it with orange pumps? But if you think combining orange and yellow is a little too much, check out the combination of luxurious jacquard with timeless royal blue. So? Is this what you were looking for?
Bottom Line? Carolina Herrera is a synonym of elegance and sophistication. And this collection unequivocally and confidently proved it. Don't forget to look at other combinations in the gallery at the bottom of this article.
