For the Carolina Herrera Pre Fall 2023 collection Creative Director, Wes Gordan was inspired by the concept of Divas.
A concept the brand defines as “a singular personality who makes every moment her own. With her commanding presence, innate confidence and extraordinary style, the Herrera woman is always in the spotlight, metaphorically or on her very own stage.”
Each piece in the collection is designed with the image of a diva in mind, meaning each piece is spectacular and unforgettable. Sumptuous textures, rich prints and a striking colour palette make this a standout collection.
Dramatic trains, head-turning silhouettes and crystal embroidery embrace individuality and joy in a Diva’s approach to dressing. The quintessential Herrera white shirt has evolved this collection into a faille top with a floor-sweeping train.
A key rose print can be seen throughout evoking Maria Callas as she takes her bow at the end of Puccini’s Tosca, showered with applause and tossed roses on stage. The Heart shape takes on a whimsical guise, from delicately structured heart bodices to bustiers with valentine cups. And finally, an ethereal white tulle gown is a dreamy confection, adorned with glistening heart-shaped sequins.
Accessories are also bold and befitting of the Diva, featuring signatures of the house including pearls, flowers, crystals and chains, embodying the ultimate Grand Diva of the house – Carolina Herrera herself.
