Fall 2013 Fashion Week: Carolina Herrera

Carolina Herrera Fall 2013 Runway Show New York

Carolina Herrera Fall 2013 Runway

Ann,

I’m on the edge of my chilly seat, as well, waiting for the first sign of Spring.  In the world of fashion, of course, we don’t anticipate the next season upon us, we live in anticipation of collections that will forecast colors and trends that are six months or one major and two minor seasons away.   Last week in New York, we got the preview of Fall ’13 collections that will debut later this summer.  You know I love Ralph Lauren — and the velvet sheath gowns you showed were incredible.  Another one of my favorites, Carolina Herrera, also presented an exceptional Fall collection.

For the runway show, the designer created a 1940’s look with models wearing tight chignon hair styles, long sheath dresses for evening in both prints and solids, and added fur to both day and evening styles in small and large amounts, from head to, yes, toe.  Ms. Herrera also embraced the “leave something to the imagination” line of designing with covered arms and shoulders and hemlines below the knee or to the floor.

From minimalist yet terribly chic solid gowns–

Carolina Herrera made me want to leap-frog a few seasons to ensconce myself in Fall weather all over again.
