The new collection of Carolina Herrera by Wes Gordon is some echo of a fabulous story created by Valentino. In the press-release it says that this collection was inspired by the dichotomy of discipline and grandeur found in “Sisi”, Empress Elisabeth of Austria. “A dazzling figure with her own agency who was unafraid to break rules and stand out, Sisi serves as the starting point for this season, heralding the unapologetic embrace of beauty and high drama.”
Although it was impossible for me, or for anybody else to find something a little bit of Austrian in this collection. Italian style and colors most of all appeared in this collection. Black and white, enormous tutu we’ve seen all of it over and over again in New York. And I’m still asking myself where’s the original identity of this brand?
