First, it was Vera Wang. Now comes Carolina Herrera.
The first Manila boutique of Carolina Herrera—known for her sophisticated personal style and a favorite designer of American first ladies and Hollywood movie stars—has opened at Greenbelt 5, Makati.
It was brought in by Trimark Holdings, the same company that introduced Vera Wang Bride to the country last year.
CH Carolina Herrera is the diffusion line of the Venezuelan-born New York designer, and carries a vast selection of merchandise, from women’s wear and men’s wear, to handbags, shoes, eyewear, jewelry and silk accessories.
The 130-square-meter boutique in Ayala Center Makati (next door to Lusso) bears chic details synonymous with the Carolina Herrera brand: dark shades of brown, black and gray against bold red and white walls, gilded moldings, and grained wood floors.
Herrera, 78, who’s iconic in her own right, with her signature coifed hair, red lips and crisp white shirts, has dressed many style influencers of various decades, including Jackie Kennedy, Renee Zellweger and Olivia Palermo.
