Vera Wang is synonymous with incredible bridal wear, many brides dream of Vera Wang even before they are engaged. This season, the Vera Wang bridal spring 2018 collection is edgy and different, just another evolution of fashion, this time for brides and not the least bit regrettable apparently.
Some of the looks are a severe push away from the expectations of wedding gowns and bridal wear, though if a designer is going to push your aesthetic on your big day, who better than Vera Wang? We know she takes her clienteles desires and preferences to task, pushing them to be more while still providing a wearable option that elevates how you look on your special day. That is what every bride wants – to look memorable and that is a goal easily achieved with a Vera Wang bridal option.
Vera Wang described her intentions and the desire to create a stunning fusion between ready-to-wear clothes and bridal options. She said: “I’ve wanted that, I’ve wanted that forever, but we have 24 stores globally now with very different clients. Because of that, we really have to satisfy a lot of needs and they aren’t purely inspirational or artistic. Each culture seems to have a different kind of bride.”
Though she appears to have taken the tastes of her variety of clientele to heart, she is also clearly intent on pushing the envelope – something Vera Wang has been very good at, for a very long time. The results – seen in the Vera Wang spring 2018 bridal collection – are beautiful in their own way, ranging from awe-inspiring to intriguing, with a marked difference from anything else out right now.
Though the designs are different, none of the bridal options is so far away from the tastes of her clientele that the collection would have to rely on the Vera Wang name alone. There are elements of romance, touches of chicness and interesting anecdotes clearly visible in each and every gown. Some, however, shine much more brightly than others.
The elongated sleeves from her previous collection seem to have carried over, the aesthetic not leaving her design style yet, but rather being incorporated into other silhouettes. The styling on the models does nothing to aid the looks, but accessorized right, the majority of these gowns will be knockouts.
The element of ready-to-wear that is incorporated into the collection is obvious and adds another note to the aesthetic. The edgier aesthetic elements are not easy to miss, and could clearly be accentuated with the right piece of jewelry, a touch of body makeup or clever undergarments. One thing is for certain – you do not have to worry about looking like anyone else on your wedding day in one of these gowns.
