Forget the ‘house of Herrera’. For Spring 2015, it was all about the garden of Herrera.

“I say this collection is in full bloom,” Carolina Herrera explained to Savoir Flair backstage before the show. “The inspiration for this collection was the color code of the flower. I took the flower and I digitalized it.”

The result of Herrera’s eveningwear-meets-botany experiment? A bouquet of gowns in vibrant pinks, iris blues, and soft yellows. This show, like most of the shows that have preceded it, maintained a distinct ladylike appeal. But there was an undeniable edge to this collection, evident in Herrera’s decision to pixilate the flowers on graphic prints and her use of techno pique fabrics. Take for instance, look 45, a pixilated foam embroidered top and strapless silk gown. This look had a sense of modern elegance and artful whimsy that managed to feel both inventive and timeless.

There were moments when Herrera stuck to her – excuse the pun – roots. The majestic purple silk organza gown in look 42 was one such instance. Overall the run of the collection was imaginative, feminine, and charming, and we look forward to several of the vivid looks being plucked straight from Herrera’s Spring 2015 runway come award season.
