Steeped in an enchanting grace and an undeniable old-world romanticism, Spring ’19 Haute Couture captured an air of poetic femininity for the ages. Designers sent gowns sweeping down the runway, adorned in a symphony of artisanal delights dancing under the light and dotting volumes of decadently ethereal fabrics. Here, we edit the season’s indelible moments and moods to inspire you for your wedding day look and beyond.
This season, couture houses explored an orchestra of new avant-garde realms for bridal. Silhouettes were pushed to new proportions with voluminous skirts, bold shoulders and sculptural ruffles met with skin-baring cut-outs and deep necklines. Swaths of fabrics were dotted in unique textures; a garden of blooming beaded embroidery at the likes of Ziad Nakad and Ashi, hems of fluttering frayed edges at Valentino at Celia Kritharioti and wild, untamed feathers at Givenchy and Ralph & Russo.
A kaleidoscope of alluring metallic tints of deep coppers, shimmering silvers and hypnotic golds reigned for the season. Designers balanced a precious metal palette and decadent textures with simplified, slim-lined or flowing silhouettes for a restrained elegance.
Mystical and unexpectedly sensual, a twilight palette of evening wear graced the runways for the Spring ’19 season. Sheer fabrics of silks and lace bared all (in all the right places) in a midnight canvas twinkling in elegant metallic accents.
Designers dove into the deep blue this season… fluid gowns of storm and aqua were awash in iridescent textural treasures of the sea. Mermaid inspired silhouettes fell from the body as gowns layered in sheer silks cascaded into hypnotic couture pieces.
Dusty nudes and peachy rose hues reminiscent of the blushing skyline at dusk painted the dreamiest of gowns for the season. A whimsical and captivating statement of femininity, designers seamlessly intertwined a romantic palette with modern notes of feathery pleating, clouds of soft tulle and dramatic silhouettes.
