New York Fashion Week Coverage: Carolina Herrera Spring 2014 Collection

Carolina Herrera’s dynamic Spring 2014 collection played with perceptions through geometric motifs and multi-dimensional layering.

The scene: Backstage before Carolina Herrera’s Spring 2014 show, six-foot tall, impossibly thin goddesses trickle into the dressing room area before the 10 a.m. show. It’s a place where tables brim with crimson, tea green, and pearl Manolo Blahnik shoes and silk crêpe gowns dangle peacefully from dressing hangers amidst the incessant, manic flash of camera bulbs.

The scene feels like an optical illusion, interestingly enough because Carolina Herrera’s Spring 2014 collection was inspired by the very concept that the eyes can be tricked into perceiving beauty by rapid movement. As such, Mrs. Herrera’s designs were brimming with geometric motifs, layering, and a multidimensional range of fabrics from chiffon to voile with the added touch of jeweled embellishments and appliqués to create a dynamic, contrasting experience for the viewer.

Karlie Kloss simultaneously floated and thundered down the runway in the collection’s first look: an iconic white cotton blouse with organza paneling, paired with a black and white printed cotton skirt. Silk crêpe pleated pants and multi-layered silk organza dresses with diamond prints followed, with shades of ivory, black, green, and pink dominating the runway.

The plethora of prints, color scheme, and flowing silhouettes fused to create an ethereal, energetic, and eye-catching Spring 2014 collection.
