Per­cep­tion of beauty

Malta Independent - - LIFESTYLE ON SATURDAY -

F or Au­tumn 2016, Carolina Her­rera was in­spired by the per­cep­tion of beauty in multi di­men­sion. Ex­plor­ing tech­niques to cre­ate tex­tured sur­faces both sub­tle and pro­nounced the ef­fect is light and the mood, a re­fined ease.

A float­ing em­broi­dered jas­mine mo­tif and flo­ral lser cutouts on prince of wales plaid and colour-block dou­ble-face wool sug­gest fem­i­nin­ity to tai­lored shapes and ma­te­ri­als; fur­ther ex­pressed by rounded soft shoul­ders on jack­ets and blouses, blend­ing day into night, the soft­ness and flu­id­ity con­tin­ues, with del­i­cate flut­ter­ing fabrics and em­broi­deries, dot­ted jac­quard, silk jer­sey, lay­ered chif­fon and or­ga­nia, all in sil­hou­ettes that move with effortless grace.

Set in a pal­ette of muted tones: pow­der, desert sand and mist with rich hues, mulberry, vi­o­let and iris, the look, at ev­ery an­gle, is to please the eye.
