Two of the big names in fashion, Carolina Herrera and Tommy Hilfiger, stayed true to their styles and put on one of the best shows at New York Fashion Week.
Herrera, especially, thrilled the audience with a collection inspired by the art of her native Venezuela.
Herrera continues to surprise with subtle innovation, rolling out creations that feature lines that trick the eye and were based on the artistic work of Carlos Cruz-Diez and Jesus Rafael Soto.
The designer’s spring-summer 2014 collection avoided flashy touches and instead uses optical illusions to bring out a woman’s sensuality
Herrera’s summer collection features the usual sunhats and bikinis, but it also offers evening dresses that look like they were taken right out of a 19th-century novel.
Hilfiger, for his part, rolled out his “Westcoaster” collection inspired by summer, the beach, surfing and spring break, a favorite time of American university students.
Models who appeared eager to hit the surf walked a runway dotted with sand dunes and wooden boards.
Hilfiger showcased a wide range of garments in different colors, including the orange worn by the lifeguards of Santa Monica and blues inspired by the waters of Malibu.
