Carolina Herrera’s Bridal Spring 2018 Collection Targets Modern Brides

Carolina Herrera‘s bridal spring 2018 collection was all about brides’ desires, with each one of the looks exuding an ultra elegant wearability that could make anyone feel at ease on her big day.

Like many designers, Carolina Herrera focused her bridal spring 2018 collection on the assumption that wedding days should be fun and not (so) stressful, especially when it comes to choosing a bridal dress that makes it possible to both look flawless and move freely from the ceremony to the reception.

For these reasons, the latest Carolina Herrera bridal spring 2018 collection features both conventionally traditional flared gowns, and fancy chic separates along with the spring 2018 bridal season’s ultimate must-have, namely the bridal jumpsuit. “I strongly believe in separates for weddings,” Carolina Herrera said during her presentation, “that, for me, is the modern way of dressing the bride.”

So, in what ways does Carolina Herrera define a modern bride-to-be? According to the acclaimed designer, the next generation of brides will be all about mixing romantic patterns with more urban-chic attitudes, whether one favors a bridal jumpsuit or a tulle gown. Although the collection, as a whole, is undeniably contemporary, Carolina Herrera’s standard romantic leitmotifs are always visible in her designs, and got here translated to delicate floral embroideries and fairytale-like cuts, such as butterfly sleeves and sheer appliqués.

“For me,” Carolina Herrera continued. “The most important day in the life of a woman is her wedding, and it has to be romantic, it has to be feminine, it has to be ethereal, it has to be dreamy—it doesn’t have to be sexy.”

Although one could debate whether her bridal spring 2018 pieces could be described sensual or not (I personally spot a clear “naively sultry” leitmotif I appreciate a lot), Carolina Herrera’s take on the next bridal season is mostly and unapologetically romantic, even with the modern jumpsuits being refined by one of the most bon ton pussy bows you will ever see in the months to come.

Romanticism aside, there’s another appealing leitmotif this latest collection of Carolina Herrera showcases, and it is the black belts some proposals featured. Like Marchesa’s lineup, Carolina Herrera’s bridal spring 2018 collection breaks the traditional wedding rules adding small accents of black, also known as the color (almost) no one wears during her wedding day. With Carolina Herrera being one of those fashion houses that usually likes to play with traditions most, we have to admit this latest unconventionally subtle take on bridal trends is truly remarkable.

“We have to keep the girls happy!” concluded Herrera, and her girls will be happy to wear one of her proposals, for sure!
