It is born from a new digital reality and a renewed sustainable spirit: artisanal production, the common thread of the shows of 18 September kicked off with the projection on the screen of images of fibres in motion viewed under the microscope.
From slow fashion to made by hand, to ecological fabrics, the world of bridal fashion responds decisively to the needs of a new era and does so with the sophistication of a guipure and the poetry of an embroidery.
The collections celebrate the feminine universe in all its facets: the strength, determination and power of women in the most structured garments, with clean, geometric, almost drawn lines that fade into ethereal silhouettes to enhance the feminine, the most delicate, romantic and sensual part. Mikado and cadyl leave space for vintage-inspired soft lace, silk tulle, organza, plumetis with lozenge shapes with micropaillettes.
The transparencies on deep necklines or long gloves dotted with crystals, the vaporous tulle of the bishop sleeves and bodice and the swaying of the long fringes of the hoods give lightness to the shapes.
In contrast, riding jackets and wide skirts with degrading flounces or covered with extra-large petals, fourreau with emerald necklines and fan sleeves, with detachable maxi bows, prominent tails and Watteau trails. Mini dresses and trouser suits, suitable for both day and evening.
The colour palette ranges from pure white to natural ivory to pastel, with patches of raspberry pink and flashes of golden yellow, while handfuls of iridescent pearls scatter flashes of light.
It is a contemporary fashion, born with the seal of ancient hand-crafted work, unique as all women are.
