Fashion & Beauty

Carolina Herrera: Colormania - Color and Fashion

Inspired by the strong and full-of-fire Carolina Herrera woman, Wes Gordon partners with Elizaveta Porodina on painterly images merging bold colors and timeless beauty in a cinematic style.

The sophistication and modern femininity of the American fashion house Carolina Herrera is captured in this evocative and vividly hued volume photographed by Elizaveta Porodina. A collaborative series of images, first created in 2020 and all taken over Zoom, feature Porodina’s signature blurred, painterly style—an effect achieved through complex lighting techniques and equipment—to capture the brand’s Resort and Spring 2022 collections in a dreamy, otherworldly light.

Inspired by dance and the work of fashion illustrator Antonio Lopez, this mesmerizing tome is flooded with photography of models and dancers in motion to reflect the vibrant energy and optimism of the clothing. Ethereal beauties wear ball gown skirts in graphic rose prints from Resort, a striped black and white strapless dress from Spring, and bold, jewel-toned voluminous outfits in shades of pink and red, along with close-ups of jewelry, leather goods, and eyewear.
