The sophistication and modern femininity of American luxury fashion house Carolina Herrera and its creative director Wes Gordon, is tastefully captured by photographer Elizaveta Porodina in this evocative and vividly colored coffee table book by Rizzoli.
A collaborative series of images, the first chapter of which was created in 2020 on Zoom, featuring Porodina's signature timeless, painterly style - an effect achieved through complex lighting techniques and equipment - captures the brand's evolving collections, designed by creative director Wes Gordon, in a dreamy, otherworldly light.
Inspired by dance, movement and the Herrera signature of bright colors, this enchanting tome is awash with photography of models and dancers in motion to reflect the vibrant energy and optimism of the clothes, arranged according to the chroma wheel rather than chronologically. Ethereal beauties, including singer and actress Dove Cameron, dancers Wendy Wheelan and Misa Kuranaga, and models Maggie Maurer and Mao Xing Xing, wear wide-flared ball gowns, bold, saturated colors and dramatic silhouettes in ten collections designed by Wes Gordon over the past four years that capture the fantastical universe of beauty that is Carolina Herrera.
