CAROLINA HERRERA FW09 NEW YORK 02-16-09The Carolina Herrera woman is always tastefully attired, and this collection gives her plenty of wardrobe options. Although Herrera's daywear is--especially by Denver's standards--very dressed up, items like a liquid satin blouse paired with a skinny trouser will easily work here on a casual night out. The Gist: This is a glamorous collection, featuring luxe fabrics, exquisite tailoring, and a rich color palette of bronze, purple, silver-gray, and blue. The designer works her opulent materials into loose blouses, high-waist skirts, slim pants, fitted jackets and--of course--a variety of red-carpet-worthy gowns. For the real world, the best silhouettes have a younger and more modern feel to counter the heavy fabrics, like a silver-gray nipped-waist jacket and matching skinny pant paired with a black satin blouse, a bronze blouse with a metallic corseted skirt, and a swagged one-shoulder gown in black and silver-gray.
