I’ve never been the biggest fan of Carolina Herrera if I’m being honest, but I couldn’t not love this new collection which is actually the (runway) debut of the new designer, Wes Gordon. And what a debut it is! An ode to his favourite word right now: Happy. A vivid, exuberant, feminine collection which brings joy only by looking at it.
Actually he was in charge already at the latest resort collection, but that one didn’t come with a bang, at least, not one that I could recall.
“Resort is great, you can make a picture, you can make the clothes the perfect—resort’s the most important collection for us as a brand. But the show, you have the opportunity for seven minutes to tell a story of a world with music, with the lighting, with the venue”, said Gordon after the show and while I wasn’t there, I can see what he means by that.
So what’s his story? Only time will tell, but one thing is for sure; he’ll be happy doing it.
