There has always been something somewhat angelic in the pieces created by the talented Carolina Herrera. So when you mix in the angelic style with a day that is all about the magical and the pure, it makes perfect sense that we will be in for quite the treat, especially due to Herrera’s impeccable eye for style. Sophistication is key of course, as it has always been, with the designer’s tight spring lineup more definite reflecting on her mantra when it comes to bridal gowns – to create the most unique pieces in service to the most unique personalities. Now, not everyone might agree that things are especially unique when it comes to Herrera’s works, but they are certainly not the norm and that is something we cannot dispute.
The Carolina Herrera spring 2017 bridal collection is most certainly something to covet a few gowns from. Even the most traditional princess styles are infinitely delicate, with nude tulle underlays adding to the ethereal nature of it all, and cascading floral appliques finding their way down the bodice.
Modern ball gowns appear on set of course, and there are ivory features and along with cream stripes and silver beaded bodices, there is something royal about it all as well. It is as if we are enjoying a costume party here of the most noble kind. Add in some exaggerated back bows and you have pieces that can certainly light the world with fireworks. Let us just hope it is not a Cinderella story here though.
Throughout the Carolina Herrera spring 2017 bridal collection we notice an abundance of tulle, ivory crepe, pearl buttons and floral embellishments. We see elegance and modernity combined with the magic of the classic, the looks quite appealing for most any lady, metropolitan or not. There is even an elegant short-sleeved trench gown in crisp silk faille.
There are 15 different looks to the collection, and each is as incredible as can be. From the strapless designs, which are common enough, to the sexiness of the open back, something we even notice on the strapless, though looks best on the Moon Princess look, the long trains and voluminous skirts, there is nothing quite so incredible as the gowns we see in this particular collection.
Ethereal is an understatement and the chic nature of each and every style, from the skirts to the trousers to the floral designed veils that fall to the floor, the semi-transparent corsets with the floral appliques and the use of volume around the hips, it is all so very lovely, and all so very white. Yes, if we are considering a designer bridal line to choose from, Carolina Herrera is undoubtedly one of the first to pop into mind. She is, by far, one of the most talented in this particular style of work and her pieces are bound to make any woman feel like the most beautiful thing to have walked this world.
