Very ladylike, very upper class – Carolina Herrera was back at the Frick Collection, the jewel-box museum on Fifth Avenue, located in the former residence of steel magnate Henry Clay Frick. Yet there was nothing nostalgic about this collection, only yearning for the future and for new technologies such as three-dimensional floral embroidery in leather applied to the surfaces of the clothes, mainly the long flared dresses. There were only three or four trousers out of forty or so looks. Skirts, on the other hand, came in various lengths, from mid-calf length to mini with contrasting hem, teamed with fluid blouses or fur tops. Evening wear was more daring, for example pairing a sparkly black sweater with a mint green gazar skirt.
