As contemporary exploration of luxury bridalwear, the Viktor & Rolf Fall 2018 Bridal collection features fabrics that are structured and embellishments that are bold and textural. Highlighting a blend of retro sculptural couture and timeless bridal accents , they deliver a fabulously offbeat line of crisp, cool and totally chic wedding dresses.
For their third bridal collection, Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren focused on ’60s influences and their own signature elements like bows, flowers, voluminous tulle, and framework.
The collection featured ivory ball gowns came with giant cascading bows along the skirt; empire-waist minidresses had little bow belts; and a cross-back jumpsuit was topped with a sculptural bow at the bust.
Details included crystal “candy” embellishments, which traced the layers of a tiered tulle skirt, and thick plexiglass flowers coating the bust of a cap-sleeved gown. A minimalist bride will still have options here—the strapless column with a single bow at the back; a new off-the-shoulder playsuit with a train. Among the showstopping gowns were the ones with ruched tulle hearts, which a member of the atelier described as “love clouds.”
