Venezuelan fashion designer and style icon Carolina Herrera has just released a collection of day clothes in her best-selling prints from past collections. “Each one has a little story,” she told Vogue. Florals, toile, stars, birds, and even drawings of her pet poodle are among the selected prints.
Each print is a playful ode to some of Mrs. Herrera’s favorite things; Swimming Ladies is inspired by her trips to Punta Cana and Zodiac was inspired by a celestial Verdura compact given to her by her husband Reinaldo. Our favorite, the Sparrows print, features her favorite bird in bright greens and yellows. The rest are equally playful and gorgeous; Love Letters, Marilyn Toile, and Botanicals round out the collection. Check out all of the prints and their individual stories here.
The looks are preppy and classic: shirtdresses, pencil skirts, shift dresses, A-lines, and sensible shorts are the chosen silhouettes. The prints are colorful and slightly reminiscent of bolder Lily Pulitzer designs, but more refined. We suggest wearing one of the looks for a lady’s luncheon, a stroll around the park, or a day trip to Yankee Stadium.
