Carolina Herrera SS18

New York has been a constant source of inspiration for Carolina Herrera, and previous show spaces at Bryant Park, The Plaza and The Pierre have made stunning backdrops to her ever-elegant collections; but to be the first fashion designer to host a runway show at the MoMA was a coup for Ms Herrera and a real moment on the Spring/Summer 2018 schedule.

Set amid the tree-lined courtyard of the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden, the collection was a celebration of colour, with a snappy palette of iris, electric yellow, coral and imperial red breathing a fresh lease of life into spring. Waist-cinching tea dresses and flowing skirts were plentiful, gracing the runway with a ladylike demureness, followed by a typically Herrera-style handling of denim, which brought easy glamour to the workaday fabric.

House of Herrera signatures, polka dots and stripes were revitalised courtesy of fresh colour combinations and unexpected embellishment, but it was the gown finale that really struck a chord with onlookers: wafted, light-as-air dresses in chiffon and tulle, re-imagined with smatterings of delicate beadwork, confetti and vivid hand-drawn prints that came alive in movement defined the spirit of the collection.
