Carolina Herrera is a brand that most mature women love wearing. But in this day and age, for any fashion label to survive, they have to tap into a younger market every once and a while. Newly-appointed creative director Wes Gordon is making that his mission for the New York megabrand and he’s starting with Pre-Fall 2019. Elegant yet easy, Gordon put forth a stunning array of looks that touched upon what young women would like to wear, all while still exemplifying sophistication. One look that might tickle their fancy is a bubblegum pink bustier top with a large frill worn over a fitted pair of blood-red trousers. For evening, a salmon-hued ruched and ruffled chiffon confection of a dress would enchant any millennial into wearing it. And for a hybrid of both, a streetwear-meets-couture look of a logo t-shirt paired with a voluminous floral skirt. The youthful exuberance here was refreshing but also still refined enough to attract most, if not all of the label’s faithful mature clientele. But will this be a lucrative change for the brand? Almost all signs point to a big resounding yes!
