Psychedelic prints, motorcycle jackets and lime-colored leather skirts hit the catwalk choreographed to Heart’s euphoric disco beat.

Cosi Fan Tutte’s impressionistic melody played as Carolina Herrera revealed a spring line filled with billowing gowns, suede jackets and cocktail dresses inspired by kinetic art.
