After delivering a series of very modern and cutting-edge bridal collections featuring contemporary silhouettes and more casual pieces such as sleek trouser suits, Carolina Herrera returns to classic elegance but gives it a fresh update via colourful details and innovative cuts.
Wedding dresses featuring a pop of colour include a guipure lace dress styled with a pale blue ribbon at the back and a removable high-neck mini cape, a strapless ball gown cinched at the waist with a blue belt and a streamlined A-line dress with a V-neckline accessorised with a green belt. One of the dresses features floral embroideries in bright blue, green and purple shades and it is paired with a tulle veil in the same colourful floral pattern. Each of these wedding gowns make a fabulous choice for a bride who wants to wear a dress that is classic but has a modern edge.
Wedding dresses from this collection feature both colourful and white on white embellishments. The most striking gowns include the long-sleeved Gabriella dress adorned with embroidered green leaves and the strapless Gwen ball gown with a tiered skirt.
For Carolina Herrera, a wedding dress should be wearable and practical, so most of the looks feature clean lines without excessive layers and oversized adornments. Some pieces even have pockets which are a very useful feature on a wedding gown. But it's not all about functionality! These gowns were also about love and poetry. The designer announced her show with the words of Lord Byron “She Walks in Beauty” and they truly depict her definition of the modern bride.
Bridal hair and make-up look that complements these ethereal wedding dresses? It has to be something simple and modern, but utterly elegant that matches the formality of the looks. For the autumn 2018 campaign, Carolina Herrera opted for a knotted low bun and a nude fresh-faced look which consisted of natural shades that seem almost completely invisible.
