Shiny Like a New Penny

New York…Carolina Herrera

With the US currently in the global spotlight for its newly inaugurated president as well as its roll in the economic turmoil, let’s hope that this iconic American designer’s recent collection was a positive prediction about the market’s future. Ladylike looks in rich textured fabrics were seen in a new metallic finish; the color of a brand new penny. Always with an eye for fabric innovation, Herrera created slim trousers in a three-dimensional two-tone copper jacquard paired with a luxe fur chubby. An oversized sweater knit dress was cinched at the waist with a molded and polished metal belt that carried over into jeweled heels and bracelet sleeves on a knee-length sheath dress.

    “Ladylike looks” is the perfect way to describe this collection; leave it up to Herrera to do what she does best, dress powerful women. There is something very First lady-like going on with each look. The fabrics are very rich, and the accessories only add to these already eloquent looks. The subdued color palette is very pleasing and can work for any woman’s wardrobe.
