The geometric patterns and graphic lines looked very high-tech but it was such a great, easy look. The designer also used embroidery design sparingly. There were cut circles and flat jewels that just added a dimensional effect to complement the existing patterns. There was one neckline of built up floral and jewel embroidery that was more classic Herrera to please the red carpet queens. Otherwise, these great moving stripes might be a problem on television, despite how nice they look in person.
A few looks carried huge, long statement necklaces that had a row of pendants. They featured unrefined stones for an artsy ethnic vibe. Shoes were two-toned satin stilettos that complemented the colors of the fabrics.
The dresses of this show were delightfully unexpected. Now I am inspired to go out and find my childhood brainteaser books to see what else can be designed this way...
