This season, the Vera Wang Spring 2018 bridal collection embraced contemporary silhouettes and ethereal fabrics for an edgy, romantic aesthetic.

“I wanted to offer my clients a different viewpoint,” said Vera Wang. The designer said the 20 looks were her new take on romanticism: “I felt frustrated by what is typically thought of romantic.” Instead, she offered up a new concept focused on sleeves and asymmetry.

Vera Wang did what she does best, fusing elegant fabrics with edgy cuts to create one-of-a-kind wedding gowns for modern brides. This season, she played with asymmetrical designs paired with classic Chantilly lace, French tulle and crepe silk for a bridal collection that has us wanting every last look.

“It’s not simply about the components of a dress that are traditionally bridal-related, like lace and chiffon and all these other materials,” Wang said. “It’s a total exploration of viewing a wedding gown in another context, but still being relatable to modern, young women.”

Wedding day purists will fawn over the designer’s signature ivory lace offerings, like the sleeveless, plunging V-neck gown with scallop detailing and a more demure long-sleeved version. “I’m trying to push [brides] in a different direction,” she said.

While she still makes a stunning ball gown, Vera’s wedding dresses feel architectural and streamlined in their construction, but add softness with delicate lace, tulle and silk along with expert draping.
