I love how Herrera sees women; very romantic, in floral prints overloaded, bathed in most luxurious silky materials creating that ultimate elegance for which Herrera stands for bringing a touch of casual note matching white silky blowse with a glamorous ´50-es form of skirts. This effortless and easy going chic is even today the main characteristic of her work.
When we talk about grandious experiments in her visual expression, we won´t find any exaggerations in that sense, but never the less, she always manages to presents the most iconicly beautiful couture, a magnificent visual festivity for which she has been known.
Her spectrum of textures that she uses is really wide; from light, sleek laced embroidery to massive and voluminous gowns spreaded in heavy but heavenly silky materials. Colors are very delicate, like a flush of a blush on woman´s cheeks improvising that gorgeously petals´ glow, or a little more brave expression illuminating bold prints all around. She trully is an icon of New York fashion scene!
What do you think about Herrera´s couture? Do you like it, does it have that ultimate couture glam factor or are you fascinated by much more intense couture expressions "a la" Paris fashion week?
Thank you for your attention!
