The collection’s designs epitomize the essence of Carolina Herrera and the craftsmanship and couture pedigree of her New York atelier and reflect the vibrant spirit of her first runway in 1981. Presented at the iconic Upper East Side Metropolitan Club amongst an eclectic mix of guests including Bianca Jagger, Andy Warhol, C.Z Guest and Diana Vreeland, the inaugural collection embraced the refined irreverence of the era, mixing uptown sensibility with downtown ease. It is this modern elegance that was the inspiration for the capsule and the styling that defines it.
“The collection is very reminiscent of the glamour from my first collection, “explains Carolina Herrera. “It embodies the style and effortless silhouettes, but with a modern spirit. I wanted to focus on pieces that where uncomplicated in shape, allowing women to have fun making it their own – fashion, after all, should be fun!”
The mytheresa.com x Carolina Herrera exclusive collection includes sleek silhouettes and sophisticated fabrics, reinterpreted from Carolina Herrera’s first collection. Pieces include an asymmetric gold lame gown, a maroon velvet military jacket and matching skirt, and zebra print silk shirtdress. The capsule is accessorized with ruby and onyx jewelry and also features velvet and jeweled sneakers designed in collaboration with the shoe brand, Eyty’s. Retail prices for the collection range from $250 for jewelry to $3700 for a gown.
The launch of the collaboration will include an exclusive mini film, titled “Something Unpredictable.” The two minute short set at Elyx House in the Hollywood Hills, starts out as a behind-the-scenes mockumentary of a fashion film, but the story soon takes an unexpected twist catching the viewer off- guard and ending in an unsettling finale reminiscent of a Twilight Zone episode. mytheresa.com worked with director and writer Danny Sangra, a Central Saint Martin’s graduate and an established artist, illustrator and photographer on the project.
