Riding Carolina Herrera’s Shirttails


Carolina Herrera wore a black silk cloque organza blouse with an ivory silk faille skirt of her own design to ABT’s spring gala, which she sponsored, but anyone who pays attention knows that she’s usually found in a white shirt, the crisper the better. We recently spotted her in one of her signature button-downs, monogrammed with “C de H” a few inches below her left shoulder. When we asked where she got it, Herrera explained that Gap designer Patrick Robinson had sent her a stack of 12 earlier this spring, and that she’d enlisted an embroiderer to do her initials—six in red and six in navy blue. “I was in heaven when Patrick sent me the shirts,” Herrera told us. “They fit perfectly, I love them, and I wear one almost every day.” You can turn your own $44 Gap shirt into a one-of-a-kind at your local stitch shop; our neighborhood favorite is Jonathan Embroidery Plus in New York’s Garment District. Remember, though, they’ll charge you extra for the “de.”
