Bauhaus by Carolina Herrera Spring/Summer 2012

New York Fashion Week - Carolina Herrera's graphic modernism of the Bauhaus movement as the starting point for a collection that translated those characteristic linear motifs into something altogether more feminine. Tiers and panels of diaphonous fabrics including chiffon and organza were layered to flutter on the breeze, or set as godets into swing skirts; flocks of budgerigars swooped across the little crep dresses in a delightful print design, and even the boxy purses were crafted from leather so soft they promised to collapse and fold into glove compartment of a Hispano-Suiza.

LoL, Andrea

Herrera took her palette from the antique Bakelite bangles that accessorized many of the looks a la Nancy Cunard; jade greens, canary yellows, lipstick reds, and the graphic play of black and white. The thirties motif extended into slinky bias-cut evening dresses frosted with Art Deco embroideries that were simply jagged with sophistication, but those same motifs in the intarsia knit of a lean sweater worn with cropped pants, or as the fine patent cinching the waists of sleek little tea dresses brought the looks firmly into the twenty-first century - for Herrera's decorous modern clients.

Understated sophistication. Beautiful creations of modernistic couture.Ultra feminine. Though I adore every design, I esp like long dresses in sheer chiffon. Tiered & layered to add glamor. The colors are bold, yet subtle in chic effect.Red, yellow, a rainbow
