When you see the Herrera runway show, it shows off the elegance and subtle wit that Mrs. Herrera herself has.

While she works with a team of designers, her personal imprint is featured on everything- from the bags to the shoes. Everything comes across the desk of Carolina Herrera.

Recently Mrs. Herrera and her daughter Carolina were in Los Angeles to celebrate the launch of the CH Carolina Herrera store in South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa Calif.

The CH Carolina Herrera store is a departure from the Herrera atelier on Melrose Place.

  This new store is about a lifestyle– the Carolina Herrera vision of life and the things that are essential to the Carolina Herrera customer.

Featuring products for men, women and even children along with personal accessories like luggage to desk essentials, there is something for everyone.

Carolina Herrera and Carolina Jr. talk about CH Carolina Herrera, fashion, style, the Melrose Place atelier and the growth of her brand.

There is a great deal in the CH Carolina Herrera stores that warrant checking one out. The photos below are but a few things that are in the CH stores and it’s definitely "guy friendly" and well worth a look — because a girl is sure to find something she would want to take with her  from the lovely little Bimba Bags

to an assortment of adorable ballet flats adorned with the CH logo

the Bryant bag and

the CH Alice Bags are hot sellers

This cool ostrich leather bangle bracelet is to die for!

and the  Mil Lagos  bags come in a variety of colors

The Positano bag and shoes  are killer additions to anyone’s  wardrobe.

While you might not always visit a Carolina Herrera Atelier– you would definitely want to shop the CH Carolina Herrera because it’s so comfy, cozy and warm. It’s a fun place to shop and full of great goodies and hard to resist.

I think Mrs. Herrera has a winner here.

LA Story and Fashiontribes.com would like to thank Mrs. Herrera and  Carolina Herrera Jr for this interview.  It was really enjoyable to speak to both  Mrs. Herrera and her daughterCarolina. Many thanks to    Phoebe Gubelman and Alana Kulig for their assistance in setting this interview up and for all the phenomenal photos.
