This spring 2012 collection of Carolina Herrera was the designer at her most chic, in the spirit of Bauhaus (again, see Marc by Marc Jacobs) and in control. Interesting parts were the lines, blocks of stripes in yellow, green and black, embroideries and appliques in geometric patterns.

The collection consisted of those typical Herrera items: bow blouses, shirt-dresses and evening gowns. But there was also a little sportswear in graphic knits, short jackets and pants cuffed above the ankle.

There were not a lot surprises at the Carolina Herrera fashion show. It was a classic womenswear collection full of beautiful designs, yet it didn’t feel very fresh. The models were dressed properly but it all appeared very tame.

The models did look very elegant and feminine in their pencils skirts and tight dresses, accentuating their hourglass figures. Their sequined tops seemed perfect for a nice cocktail party and the enormous cuffs gave some looks an unexpected twist (though not very practical).

Some designs in orange, turquoise and blue, added towards the end of the collection, looked lovely and slightly younger that the first few looks. The colors of Karlie Kloss’ evening gown were daring, yet worked perfect together and made up for a Oscar worthy A-list look.

But we think Caroline Herrera doesn’t even need those celebrities to wear her clothes. We guess she has more than enough loyal customers who will immediately fall in love with this new collection. ‘Cause one thing’s for certain Carolina Herrera knows the woman she designs for all too well and always sticks to her (winning) code.
