A Playful Spirit at Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2014

Instead of having private appointments, Carolina Herrera decided to switch things up by presenting for Pre-Fall 2014 collection Cocktail Party style. The theme definately made perfect sense, as the collection showed off this Playful Spirit that’ll be sure to brighten up any festivity. A honeycomb patterned skirt gets paired with an olive sweater with black feathers on the bottom. Flowers get plastered onto your favorite evening gowns. White and Ruffles make a splash when paired with tweed. And white bumble bees get printed onto a tangerine skirt suit. Perfectly playing in with the collection’s catchphrase: “Bee Happy.”

Dennis Basso Is In a Celebratory Mood for Pre-Fall

As Dennis Basso reaches the 30th Anniversary of his label. He’s in none other than a celebratory mood, as he designs his Pre-Fall collection. Inspired by London in the 1960s, the collection takes a Vintage feel, but most definately with a Celebratory, modern twist. “Pre-fall can be uptown or it can be downtown,” the designer told WWD. “It’s all about the woman taking the pieces and making them her own.”
Getting to that point, a paisley printed top paired under a fur houndstooth Shaw, gives off a “Ready to Party” vibe. While an LBD goes Edgy underneath a black crocodile skin jacket with a bedazzled collar, and thigh-high Equestrian boots underneath. And a Sparkled evening gown gets transformed into daywear, when worn underneath a fur top with black thigh-high Equestrian boots, and finished off with a Chocolate Crocodile skin handbag and black gloves. I’m just left extremely in love with the collection as a whole.
