Carolina Herrera Resort 2024 Collection

Carolina Herrera Resort 2024 Collection

The Carolina Herrera Resort 2024 collection embarks on a journey of exuberant joy and sensuality. A spirit of litheness and ultramodern ease permeates the collection, with unforgettable pieces that sacrifice zero fabulousness.

Creative Director Wes Gordon continues to reinvent iconic Herrera house codes in captivating new ways, through different proportions, fabrications, and a rainbow-hued color palette grounded in signature New York black. The proportions of the classic cotton shirt are scaled up considerably, wrapped and tucked into floor-skimming skirts cut in a saronglike drape. Polka dots take on a playful tone, in pieces such as menswear-inspired silk shirting and pants worn over a matching bikini top. Eyelet cotton is shown in vibrant green, lacquer red, and black, cut as dramatic cocktail dresses, ball skirts, and gowns that lend an air of ease to elevated, glamorous separates.

This season’s Herrera woman has a reinforced spirit of relaxed confidence. A streamlined, body-conscious silhouette is prevalent, with pieces blurring the lines between casual and dressy, day and night, drawing a conclusion that a fabulous piece is right of any occasion. For evening, the volume is turned up with dramatic gestures, created without inner constructions or corsetry, instead relying on precise tailoring and feather-light fabric. Unexpected color blocking makes for unforgettable entrances, such as a cutout mini-dress in lake blue, kiwi green, and papaya orange. A rainbow ruffle skirt floats by, delighting in the full-color palette of the collection. All-over sequins take on dramatic flair, evoking watercolor florals or a shimmering sunset. Orchids are a motif found throughout the collection, from delicate embroidery to soft watercolor prints in organza. A duo of tulle pieces is a triumph of the New York atelier, made from hundreds of layers of hand-trimmed tulle in undulating waves of black and white, paying homage to the modernist boardwalk designed by Brazilian landscape architect Roberto Burle Marx. The collection is accented by vibrant jewelry in starburst hues, sparkling in the twilight sun.

The Carolina Herrera team expressed their immense gratitude to the City and People of Rio de Janeiro, as the generous hosts of the Resort 2024 Runway Show and surrounding events. They were inspired by the city’s energy, Alegría de Vivir, and boundless optimism.

The Carolina Herrera for 2024 carries that same boundless optimism.


Mother Nature and the tropical Brazilian climate proved to be the ultimate muse. As guests arrived to enjoy sunset cocktails and a breathtaking rainbow spanning the expanse of the stage, a rainstorm arrived upon the show location for a prolonged and unexpected period of time. Ultimately, guests were escorted to the adjoining party in a jungle greenhouse built for the occasion, as models were filmed in the rain barefoot holding their shoes, evoking an emotional and romantic image of the Girl from Ipanema.
