Carolina Herrera Spring Inspiration Event by Elle Singapore on 24 Mar 2016

When I saw CH Carolina Herrera Spring Inspiration mailer invitation from Elle Singapore magazine, I was attracted by the photo immediately.  I told myself that this was an event that I wouldn’t want to miss.  I fell in love with the two dresses which the female models were wearing in the mailer.  Simply love that romantic yet sexy look that shows off the legs.

Here I was at CH Carolina Herrera Spring Inspiration Event on 24 March 2016.  It was a showcase of its Spring 2016 collection at the flagship store located in Marina Bay Sands Shoppes L1-19, Bay Level.  As I was there early, I got the opportunity to browse through the collection which includes apparels and accessories for women, men and kids(up to 10 years old).  

The boutique manager, Lerine, walked me through the boutique, while going through the concept of the flagship store.  Founder Carolina Herrera wanted a cozy relaxed feel for customers to browse through the items available as if they were in their own apartments.  Hence part of the boutique is designed as a walk-in wardrobe, which is a dream to most ladies.

Mrs Herrera started Carolina Herrera New York in 1981 and in 2001, CH Carolina Herrera was formed as a lifestyle brand offering ready-to-wear and accessories for men, women and kids.

This has gotta be my favourite section of the boutique, showcasing CH’s collection of evening wear, a display of brilliant use of colours with lots of volume and structure.

 The section offers a selection of corporate wear which is versatile enough for ladies to wear for an evening night out after work.

The men won’t feel left out as well, as CH dedicated a section for men’s wear, where the guys can pick from a good selection of polo tees, shirts, casual wear, formal jacket suits, etc.

A good selection of jackets with a range of colours to choose from.

I was surprised that CH also offers accessories for horse riding.  Amazing!

Even though apparels are the main focus for the event, I also checked out their accessories, which includes wallets, cufflinks, luggage tags, bags, shoes and even home accessories like aromatic candles.

I love how the boutique was designed to subtly showcase the brand, be it as part of the table display or on the ceiling.

 I bumped into two friends, Simone and Celestia at the event. Hi gals, good to meet up with you again!

The highlight of that night’s event was the mini fashion showcase.  Renowned fashion stylist Furqan Saini was there to go through some pieces of the collection that shows texture, volume, colour and print.

Amazing use of green on this set of apparels which has an off shoulder design to give you a tinge of sexiness.  The two knots impact a feminine appeal to the top and pants.

 Next up is a red dress with zig zag prints and a tie belt, meaning that you can either go for a look with the belt for a more casual style or tie the belt for a more shaped up style.

Farhan showed us how to change the look by throwing on a black casual outer wear for a weekend getaway or catch up with friends over tea.

This look rocked the house!  For ladies who are looking for corporate wear but yet do not want to settle for the usual boring black jacket suits, this style offers something out of the norm yet formal enough for ladies to carry off in the office.

The look when the jacket was hocked up.  Cindy, Country Manager of CH, was discussing with me how this jacket can be used for casual days off when matched with denim jeans.  Cool!

A very classy elegant look greeted the guests when the model came out with a knee length dress and a long jacket.

 A great option for the office and all a lady needs to do is to remove the jacket for an evening night out.  Very versatile indeed!

A very feminine look combined with yellow floral prints set against a contrasting black.  A pair of straight cut 3/4 pants sets a casual feel.

The showstopper for that evening. CH’s signature look – long voluminous skirt with a classic white chiffon shirt.  It makes a lady look so effortlessly put together, channeling elegance and charm.

Thanks Carolina Hererra and Elle Singapore for the kind invite to check out CH’s Spring 2016 collection!
