Runway: Carolina Herrera Spring 2016 RTW, New York



“A ROSE PERIOD” is how Carolina Herrera described her mood for spring. Indeed, pink felt right at the house of Herrera – both in the clothing and the intimate rosy atmosphere. In the Garden Court of the storied Frick Museum, where countless designers have wanted to stage their shows, but only the legendary Herrera was given a ‘yes’, the designer surprised and enticed the world. Subtle transparencies in organza, tulle, and sheer panelling showed a new sensual and delicate mood; athletic modern fabrics were adapted to the most feminine of dresses — Herrera was never one to shy away from modern materials. And of course, pink, in every imaginable shade, from the softest hue to a bright fuchsia and everything in between. A collection fit for a modern princess. —Victoria020306040705080910111315141617

Victoria lives in the south of Spain, having moved there from her native country Ukraine when she was just a child. She finds herself looking up to timeless icons from past decades including Jackie O, Grace Kelly, Katherine Deneuve and Audrey Hepburn, and longing for sunny afternoons on the French Riviera and walks along the Seine during spring. Always overdressed and dishing out on tailored pieces and shoes – secretly dreaming they were from Dior or Saint Laurent – she dresses for herself rather than others, and would trade breakfast for Vogue or a one way ticket to anywhere beautiful.
