Carolina Herrerra Spring 2014


The Spring 2014 collection is inspired by the Kinetic Art movement and Venezuelan artists Carlos Cruz-Diez and Jesus Rafael Soto. Embracing the exploration of the optical effects of motion and the eye’s perception, Carolina Herrera applies that sensibility to material and silhouette. Through layering of geometric motifs on a range of fabrics from organza to chiffon and voile, with touches of jeweled embellishments and appliqués, the clothes in motion create a virtual, multidimensional experience for the viewer. Patterns of black and white along with prints in crimson, sienna, and smoky umber contrast with soft tones like tea green, porcelain, and mauve to accentuate this play on perception.
