There is something to be said for being able to never put a sartorial foot wrong. And for wealthy women looking for exactly that then Carolina Herrera has, season after season and year after year, come to their aid. Like a best friend who has got your back Herrera continues to faithfully serve women who want to look chic and sophisticated with just the appropriate dash of sartorial intrigue.

This season was no exception. Shown in the refined enclosed central courtyard of The Frick museum, Herrera’s collection proved once again that the designer knows how to make beautiful, feminine dresses and gowns. But more then that, she achieves those goals while continuing to challenge herself as a designer.

That pursuit of originality and innovative techniques was most apparent this season in the way she was able to create a three dimensional floral motif on her designs. She actually constructed her blooming skirts and dresses so that cut out fabric flowers stood raised up against their cloth backdrop through the use of vertical bugle beadwork. This created a space between the blooms and the underlying garments which gave the pieces a particular sense of volume.

Other then those fascination pieces it was hard not to swoon over a classic white silk shirt that just happened to have sleeves crafted from shaved mink. Or appreciate the understated yet smart touch of adding notched lapel feature to a gray tweed print knee length dress worn by Karlie Kloss to open the show. It pulled in the strength of menswear staples and topped it off with feminine grace. It was a blend that seemed perfectly in tune with the times.
