Even the no fashion experts have heared about Vera Wang and her wedding dresses. If you wanted to be married in the top of the tops of fashion wedding ensembles you would choose Vera Wang. She has started first as the brides wear creator and designer, and had the successful evolution to haute couture spectrum. Her vision of haute couture has been very dark and avant garde, with deep melancholic vibes. And this same design approach she has kept when the word is about her bridal collections.
The proove for that was Vera Wang Spring/Summer 2018 Bridal Collection. In the form of very darkish editorial it has displayed and presented very gloomy and more exprimental kind of brides wear which was in total contradiction to her collections when she started making wedding dresses. The reason for that was her development as a designer not just in bridal but in haute couture range too.
So in this bridal collection there were lots of anti-bridal vibes; from deconstructed and sharp silhouettes, with naked shoulders and puffy oversized sleeves. This anti-glam approach has more artistic sensation, in the choice of fabriques and textures too. There were not chiffons or any other glamorous materials, more clean almost cotton alike textures with amazing cuts´ solutions like already mentioned shoulders or naked backs.
This collection had very big influence in Vera Wang haute couture approach which she transported into her bridal collection. No sugar coated style on the sight, just pure art and breaking old and making new bridal style horizons. Something what is yet to come in bridal aesthetic approach. And more original fashion ladies can not wait for that!
What do you think about this collection?
Thank you for the attention!
