The latest collection by Marisol Henriquez was presented on September 13 at New York Fashion. Henriquez is a designer working in the industry since 1989. She’s shown several times during New York fashion week and I must say, Marisol Henriquez has a style all her own, not necessarily for the general public.
For her latest collection, Marisol Henriquez was inspired by the depths of the ocean. A theme that I think is fairly straightforward for a spring / summer collection. Still, the clothes followed this theme all to well and sometimes a bit too much. The collection featured pieces with bright colors, floral fabrics and silk or taffeta. The styling was rather dated, which unfortunately, did not value the strengths of Marisol Henriquez collection. The use of silk was in this manner was more appropo for bridesmaids dresses in the 90s. Okay this was certainly not a collection did not follow the latest trends, but rather the unique style of the designer.
The silk robes were very well done, but diminished slightly by wide belts woven into the colors of the dress, for an effect that seemed too busy. Moreover, the idea of parading young men in small silver lamé briefs to present the bags was in bad taste. It took a moment to understand why they were in the collection. The audience, however, seemed to appreciate the collection.
The collection itself seemed to represent what Marisol Henriquez was looking to do and her customers will appreciate the continuity in the line.
