“I’m in my rose pe­riod,” says Carolina Her­rera, who has al­ways had an eye for fem­i­nine flo­rals. “This sea­son, I fo­cused on cre­at­ing a col­lec­tion about tran­quil­lity, not still­ness but calm el­e­gance.” Cue light-as-feather shift dresses and peek­a­boo pas­tel coats that re­sem­ble a beau­ti­ful gar­den in bloom. “I was in­trigued by the spec­trum of a rose, from pale blush to bold fuschia. It al­lowed me to have a rich pal­ette to ex­plore with hints of neu­tral ac­cents.” Carolina Her­rera Spring/ Sum­mer ’16 sees the Venezue­lan-born de­signer tak­ing it to an­other level through sheer lay­er­ing and or­nate ap­pliqués float­ing on the body. “This col­lec­tion is all about the idea of transparency and il­lu­sion evok­ing sen­su­al­ity. It’s im­por­tant to leave some­thing for the imag­i­na­tion. Fash­ion, af­ter all, is about fan­tasy!”
