“It is a question of an explosion of color inspired by the watercolors of Jeremiah Goodman” Carolina Herrera was saying on having finished the presentation of his collection for the spring - summer 2008 in Bryant Park of New York. Blue, green tonalities, roses, oranges, burdeos, the whole coloring of the watercolors of Goodman appear in this super collection feminine and full of imaginative details and of the most refined taste.
In effect, the painter neoyorkino that has projected the interior design of the big mansions of Hollywood, the houses of Greta Garbo, of the Duchess of Windsor and of other first figures of the international jet set of last century, have been the axis of the inspiration of this collection. A real contrast with the previous collection of Carolina Herrera inspired by the tenebrismo of Edgard Munch. In this one everything has been impregnated with a coloristic and refreshing air with precise counterteas between the simplicity and the sophistication.

In the majority of the models it was possible to detect this pure and dynamic tone, as for example in the white top with an embroidered flower combined with a few convex shorts much adapted for cocktail, but especially in the floral patterns of his garments of silk. The two only pants of the collection were appearing under a tunic of a floral silk of vibrant pattern. There triumphed once again his impeccable dressed shirtmakers knotted to the waist and other of his basic most essential: the shirts and white blouses combined with all sorts of pledges.

Between his proposals for the day there emphasize the straight pieces, also full of floral motives, the elongated and very feminine cardigans of point, the short jackets and the comfortable skirts. For cocktail it uses the shorts abullonados that give a new perspective to the sets and that it combines sometimes with cardigans sports.

But it is for the night when Carolina Herrera can give major free rein to his imagination, to his elegant designs. Garments in chiffon of silk, belts in the shape of bond, one of his favorite details, forming a contrast of color as for example black skirt and choral belt. Between the textiles there dominate the chiffones lacquers, the organza and the stamped gauze. And a marvel of embroideries that offer his packing to the simplicity of the line. The sheen of the spangles could not be missing either. As a whole the collection was dismissing an ensoñación air with certain theatrical air but simultaneously with a look in which the smallest details had looked after.
