Wes Gordon Pushes Carolina Herrera in a More Wearable (But

“It’s not the sexiest thing to say, but I adore the commercial component of a production,” Wes Gordon tells me after unveiling his Spring 2023 collection for Carolina Herrera in a gilded, chandelier-filled ballroom at The Plaza Hotel. The designer has always been focused on the core Carolina Herrera customer since taking the brand over from its founder (who sat in the front row), so his picture of her has only gotten clearer over the years  — and he’s not afraid to show that on the runway.
