Ladylike chic is what one expects from a Carolina Herrera collection, so it was hard to decipher what the designer was trying to say with her abundant use of hardware. Working a bold palette of hazard orange and gray, Herrera showed body-conscious dresses, lean skirts decorated to the nines with shiny gold beads, grommets and lacing. While the motif delivered a chic gutsiness that stopped well short of tough, it at times felt clunky, as when wide, grommeted suede belts weighed down a blouse-and-jacquard pants combo and an otherwise lovely wool sheath. But then, Herrera is obviously feeling confident: Her array of grand gowns indicated that come November, she expects her clients to have plenty to celebrate.
