“My design philosophy is elegance and beauty,” Herrera tells Vogue.com. “You can be elegant in revolution, and you can be irreverent without shocking people.” To wit: featured pieces from “Refined Irreverence” like a prim black and taxi yellow, wholly sequined suit from her first collection, or a full-sleeved, sparkling zebra wrap dress that dates back to 1983, both on display alongside more contemporary pieces like the fuchsia, Korean-inspired duchesse gown Angelina Jolie donned in Vogue in 2010.  carolina
