Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2022 Holiday season collection. Review by Eleonora de Gray, Editor-in-Chief of RUNWAY MAGAZINE.
Captured by photographer Camila Falquez, the Pre-Fall 2022 collection features models in bold and joyful movement with the American Ballet Theatre’s Principal dancers Calvin Royal III and Blaine Hoven, in collaboration with choreographer Jessica Lang-Segawa. Carolina Herrera’s collaboration with ABT began earlier this Fall, with Wesgordon ‘s designs for Lang-Segawa’s piece Zigzag, which served as an inspiration point for this collection.
“The beauty and power of dance was my inspiration this season. Through movement, grace, sensuality, self-expression, energy and electricity, dance lets us communicate far beyond the limitations of words.
The costumes of the dancers themselves – the mille-feuille ethereal tulle of ballet, the cool blacks and whites of Fosse, the colors of Martha Graham, and of course the sparkle and fringe, from the Flappers to Cher – are all evident in this collection.
With this collection, I created pieces for our spectacular women to truly live their lives in.
Pieces to fall in love with that transcend a specific time. Pieces to treasure, and above all, pieces that make her want to dance.” – W.G.
