Here we are with one of the spring 2018 bridal season’s most anticipated shows, Marchesa’s! The Marchesa bridal spring 2018 collection’s presentation left everybody in awe, also evoking naturalistically chic vibes, which were inspired by Britain’s fairytale-like gardens.
“We were thinking about the English bride, but it’s still quintessentially Marchesa,” explained Georgina Chapman backstage, confirming Marchesa’s signature aesthetics will always play a focal point in each bridal collection, season after season.
In this specific bridal collection of Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, Marchesa’s signature aesthetics were predominantly expressed in the timelessly chic silhouettes, which, of course, were all about mermaid figures, and unconventionally little details, with Craig and Chapman outdoing themselves with touches of untraditional black accents added here and there, this time around.
Like Reem Acra, yet in a more subtle way, Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig played with a sort of unconventional yin and yang leitmotif throughout the entire collection, adding contrasting, yet always elegant, black belts to most of the proposals. One shorter cocktail dress went further with this black-infused motif featuring contrasting black hems, too, not to mention the fact that the designer decided to complement it with a pair of high-heeled black sandals with black furry appliqués and black lace detailing we bet many will use for their big day, for sure.
Black touches aside, this Marchesa spring 2018 bridal collection presented three other distinctive patterns that are actually already defining and shaping the spring 2018 bridal season. First and foremost, Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig toyed with the proportions thanks to some well-structured layers of ruches, which helped add a jocose dynamicity specifically to the bottoms of the gowns.
Secondly, this collection infused the runway with the aforementioned “English Garden” pattern thanks to cascades of exquisitely embroidered floral motifs on both the tops and skirts, which ultimately added the most romantically elegant touch to the entire collection.
Last but not least, Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig’s Marchesa bridal spring 2018 collection also ventured into the more conceptual side of fashion (which is something we saw in Viktor and Rolf’s spring 2018 bridal collection as well), experimenting with asymmetrical lines and exaggerated layers, too.
Other appealing patterns included Marchesa’s standard loads of tulle and cheerful bows on the sleeves, which those who love conventionally romantic bridal proposals will surely fall in love with.
Although Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig’s Marchesa bridal spring 2018 line-up included “only” 15 proposals, the designer managed to fully represent almost any bride-to-be’s soul, from the most artistically conceptual to the unapologetically romantic. If your big day comes next year and you still haven’t made up your mind when it comes to the ceremony’s biggest element – the dress, we recommend having a look at collection!
