The Viktor & Rolf Spring 2019 bridal collection was surprisingly diverse, with an eclectic of gowns and jumpsuits for brides of every taste.
There were sleek columns alongside delightfully over-the-top ball gowns; dresses with long trains next to retro minis; bursts of laser-cut flowers or thick, minimalist bows.
Viktor & Rolf purists will zero in on the designers’ signature sliced-tulle ball skirts and the gowns with oversize satin lilies, a motif borrowed from the Spring 2018 Couture show. For brides looking for something simpler, and maybe even a little ’60s-ish, there was a stunning cap-sleeved gown topped with a satin bow, a light coating of glass beads, and a crystal headband. Accessories were a clever new focus this season; other gowns were topped off with giant floral headpieces, appliquéd gloves, tulle masks, and even sheer socks.
The lineup also included three minidresses, which have become the de rigueur choice for city hall weddings as well as quick-changes after lavish ceremonies. The vintage-loving girl will lean toward the trapeze-y, bow-backed mini covered in 3-D petals.
