The Bauhaus movement, the German school of thought that started back in 1919 — responsible for influencing modern architecture and modern product design, and then later earning distinct and esteemed impacts on the art, typography, graphic design and industrial design industries — has now made its way into New York Fashion Week aka: the latest Spring/Summer Carolina Herrera collection. 

Staying true to the original Bauhaus edict: applying geometrical forms, using complimentary shapes and materials  affixed together — allowing them to speak to one another fluidly as a collective whole — Herrera seamlessly executes the Bauhaus philosophy through out her new and impressive Spring/Summer collection for 2012.  

The designer famously known for her ethereal and frilly feminine style, manages to retain the Carolina Herrera signature attributes, while successfully incorporating the  geometric method to create new and fresh looks, which we've never seen from the master of fashion design before.  

Herrera's established silhouettes —under the formula of architectural structure — is formidable, bolder and more powerful.  It is perhaps a commentary by the fashion designer on how women might want to portray themselves through fashion in today's new world.  

Have a watch at her NYFW S/S 2012 show from last week (featured video above), our picks  from her lookbook illustrated below, as well as some Bauhaus history (video at right).
