It was back to basic chic for Carolina Herrera, who focused on her traditional, well-known feminine and no-nonsense silhouette. Her collection revolved around suitsformfitting stretch wool and bouclé jackets were paired with flared or lean skirts and skinny, tailored pants. Black prevailed for both day and evening. Leather skirts and coats looked striking and modern when paired with sand georgette tops, and simple crepe gowns made a splash with shocks of pink and scarlet. There was also a lush chevron-striped mink jacket, and richly embroidered dresses and separates that exuded Herrera's unmistakable touch of classic sophistication.
