Trust Viktor&Rolf to come up with something surreal yet sublime. The Mariage Fall/Winter 2020 fashion artists Viktor&Rolf during New York Bridal Week is what they propose for a winter wedding. The collection some with complete intricate frost interpretations of classic bridal elements and seasonal flower embellishments.
Responding to the current trend of brides planning to wear their bridal get-up more than once, Viktor&Rolf re-interpreted the classic tweed and traditional lace which were unexpectedly uplifted as they become frosted embroideries and crystal patters.
The precious treatment is then re-imagined as fresh and crisp snowflakes. Elegant, fitted and voluminous silhouettes are enhanced by delicate frosted tweed and frosted fur embroideries.
In typical Viktor&Rolf fashion, otherwise masculine elements are infused with feminine ideals to give way to the spectacular.
The Viktor&Rolf winter garden includes organically wrapped bows and dramatically draped wild roses with graphic petal detailing which gives each of the gowns a sculptural edge. This range also presents an abundance of Wisteria vines which add an ethereal touch and movement to the collection.
This season also introduces the dramatic high-low shirt dress. A feminine and chic interpretation of a masculine shirt featuring a shirt collar and modern plastron detailing. The hem is adorned with an extravagant volant that gives way to a striking Watteau train.
‘The Diana Dream’, this season’s standout piece, is a theatrical taffeta gown with plunging V-neck that is entirely constructed in petticoat style. Back interest is created with an open-back that gives way to an elaborate signature bow and voluminous train that highlights the extravagance of the gown.
The collection is produced in partnership with Justin Alexander, an international bridalwear designer and manufacturer.
