Marchesa‘s bridal collection for spring 2017 is absolutely enchanting. Each season, we expect to see a stunning showing from this brand, as the designers have always delivered eveningwear and special occasion garments to the highest of quality and desirability. This season, we were given an ethereal “journey through a real, enchanted garden,” including a series of gowns clad with 3D florals that breathed life into the idea of holding a wedding under a warming spring sun; the dresses in this line are as fresh and new as a spring breeze, fit and ready to lift one’s spirits.
Designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig built the Marchesa spring 2017 bridal collection from the initial concept of an “ethereal, cascading blossom,” which was seen not only in the floral prints, but also in the silhouettes. The color palette for this collection also played true to the theme, with pale shades of blush and pink, amid the staple white gowns. They remained airy, to further images of a light and breezy spring day.
As such, any one of the gowns in this collection would make any woman a stunning bride on their wedding day. Impeccable arrangements of pearls, crystals, and 3D petals in floral prints adorned the dresses, making each one appear to be thought out and individually construed, which would prove to be an unrivalled trait for a bridal gown when walking down the aisle.
To stick with the signature Marchesa outlook on life, all of the gowns carried their own levels of classic beauty and sophistication. Lace, organza, satin and tulle were used to construct unique gowns, each just as stunning as the last. In one look, cascading strands of petals over sheer organza made for an elegant appearance, especially with the complementary sweetheart bust line and sheer off-the-shoulder straps. This was one dress, of many, that was the cause for a breath of fresh air, perfect for any spring wedding, indoors or outdoors. No matter the venue, the Marchesa bride for spring 2017 will be jaw dropping the moment those in attendance see her.
Other looks in the line featured plunging necklines, paired with rather demure other features in order to offset the potential over-sensuality of the bared skin, helping keep things sophisticated. Mermaid silhouettes were on trend for the season’s line as well, being interspersed more frequently than the other, still-stunning ball gowns (which I find myself particularly partial to). Between the expert mixture of fabrics and silhouette possibilities, an intricately constructed, gorgeous collection of dresses was presented from Marchesa. The output of the brand is always highly competitive to be the most lovely and successful bridal line of the season, and this collection definitely followed this trend.
