Creative directors of Oscar de la Renta, Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim have created yet another breathtaking bridal collection that pays tribute to the late designer’s love of flowers. Floral embellishments were intricate and enriched with motives of vines, ferns and leaves. Fabrics such as fine lace, satin, tulle, organza and silk faille were used to create gorgeous dresses embellished with hand-cut anemone applique, crystals, white pearls and thread work embroidery.
The most elaborate of the ball gowns featured voluminous ruffled or tiered skirts adorned with cascading florals, but the simple, embellishment-free column dresses were just as elegant. A guipure lace trumpet gown with a huge silk faille bow at the back was a fun modern twist to a timeless outfit. For brides who want something chic and totally unconventional, we loved the ivory jumpsuit with a guipure lace bodice or the white tuxedo with a sequin corset. There was also a simple silk faille ball gown with a twisted strapless bodice and a few gorgeous fit-and-flare lace numbers which are perfect for semi-formal events such as a daytime country wedding or a beach celebration.
One of the gowns was inspired by Sarah Jessica Parker and it was one of our favourite looks! A ballerina-inspired ball gown with a crinoline petticoat featured the brand’s logo embroidered at the front. The dress was styled with a white denim jacket and a ‘just married’ necklace. A modern-day outfit for a modern-day bride!
The gowns were accessorised with embroidered veils, silver, green and white painted bud earrings, white pearl earrings, striking crystal and pearl rings and elegant sandals or pumps in white or ivory satin.
The collection also includes an extraordinary range of flower girl dresses varying from effortless cotton pique eyelet dresses paired with straw hats to elaborate satin, taffeta and tulle frocks adorned with the same embellishments that were featured on the bridal gowns.
