CAROLINA HERRERA NYFW SHOW FALL WINTER 2022
Carolina Herrera NYFW SHOW
Fall Winter 2022
From February 11 to 16, took place the long-awaited New York Fashion Week, which hosts the collections of American designers and the brands they represent.
The New York Fashion Week proceeded to a rich program with the participation of almost all the leading houses and brands of the American fashion industry, and the participation in the front row of many celebrities. Carolina Herrera was one of the collections that stole the show and are worthy of special mention and presentation.
Carolina Herrera Fall Winter 2022 Show
On the morning of Monday, February 14, on Valentine's Day -the most erotic day of the year-, we watched the Carolina Herrera show, which also exuded eroticism. Creative Director, Wes Gordon, was inspired by the confident, strong, and fiery founder of "Carolina Herrera" company, for the impressive Fall-Winter 2022 collection we had the opportunity to admire at NYFW.
Wes Gordon was introduced to us for the first time in 2019, as Creative Director of Carolina Herrera, signing the Resort Collection 2019 of the fashion house. Since then he has proved to honor this position without a doubt. This season, he has created optimistic elements in his distinctive silhouettes, mixing uniquely the playful and lively aesthetics with the elegant, sophisticated, and sometimes appropriate DNA of the fashion house.
Wes Gordon was back on the road, meeting customers and showcasing his spring collection for Carolina Herrera. He admitted that this is his favorite part of the job, second only after applying the clothes for a start.
Our clients are looking for pieces that celebrate the moment. They want the "wow" from Herrera; to live in the moment and get well-dressed.
A Collection With a Spanish Aroma
From the first moment of the Carolina Herrera Fall 2022 show, we realized that the brand would travel our senses and imagination. From New York, we moved to charming Spain. Designer Wes Gordon was inspired by the history, culture, eroticism, liveliness, and authenticity of Spain. The bright colors created a wonderful contrast with the all-white catwalk. He also used his trademark throughout the collection; an elevated-casual style that characterized each of his creations.
Wes Gordon returned more dynamic than ever and designed clothes for the woman who celebrates the moments, who wants to get well-dressed, to live every minute to the fullest while remaining the "wow person" whatever the occasion. Ariana DeBose, Alexandra Daddario, Sabrina Carpenter, Alisha Boe, and Faouzia lined up in the front row in front of the runway much earlier than the show was ready to start.
Hence the dominance of the short, long shapes in the style of the '60s, the party dresses with corsets and "floating" bras, and the overcasts of tulle plissé. Gordon's reinterpretation, which followed a few looks later, combined a comfy black cardigan with black cigarette pants completed with a skirt with a split front. Meghan Markle observers will remember a red number that Gordon made to her late last year, similarly.
A Shocking Collection Full Of Confidence
Gordon's new collection was an ode to Mrs. Herrerα. Α blouse, a jacket, and a coat dress; all decorated with the dramatic sleeves that she loved and preferred. Fitted white shirts came close with fuchsia silk moiré Carolina Herrera long skirts, creating an ensemble that could easily have her name on it.
Keeping that in mind, Gordon presented his collection for the Carolina Herrera Fall/ Winter 2022 with characteristic optimism, giving a truly playful streak. He specialized in a kind of practical grandeur. This was the style of the collection in general. The short, leggy style pieces reminiscent of the trends of the '60s, the party dresses, the sensual corsets, but also the pleated tulles stole the show and made our hearts beat faster.
Of course, the floral patterns made their presence felt this time, both in staples and in total looks. The silhouettes this season are intensely linear with huge sleeves and a revelation of color on the hem. The bustier shapes are cut sensually and precisely, while the fringes and sequins are not missing. Intense colors filled the white runway while incredibly floral in great climates adorned the evening gowns.
Carolina Herrera Shoes
As for the shoes of this season's collection, we saw feminine high heels in gold, fuchsia, pink, red, and black colors. Either with a floral tie or a simple cord around the ankle or not. The imposing over-the-knee boots in black also dominated the show, always perfectly combined with the impressive clothes of the collection.
A special costume proposal for St Valentine's Day
A strapless dress with a collage of large, whimsical flowers, embroidered with metallic sequins, would be a charming choice for a young star's first Oscars or a special St Valentine's celebration day. For a candidate, Mrs. Herrera would support a strapless velvet dress with a skirt. She nodded and showed enthusiasm as she passed. Some glances were carried away by the message:
The best pieces had the "wow" factor that Gordon says his "wife" Herrera longs for.
The collection had a lot of drama, old Hollywood glam, and Oscar silhouettes. That is, what the fans of the brand wanted to see, but this time more optimistic and with a more playful and fun mood. This collection is extremely feminine and the bright colors that adorn the Carolina Herrera dresses give a special aesthetic. The romance that possesses them with the tulle fabrics and the floral prints give a different note.
For the end of the show, the artistic director chose to present Miro Hermes and François Bouchet, who is retiring after 22 and 19 years of brilliant collaboration with the American designer. This was a very nice gesture of honor to these wonderful partners of the company and the best way to close this impressive fashion show.
