Wedding season is finally here. If you’re anything like us, you’re more likely to go big, bad, and bold rather than squared-up traditional. Lucky for you, us, and spring/summer 2015, fashion powerhouses like Versace, Chanel, and Giambattista Valli reinvent the most essential piece of any wedding — the dress.

Pure, graphic, romantic, precise, and bohemian, the white dress remains an essential piece for the designers who compete with creativity to reinvent it. An overview of the most beautiful white dresses seen on the catwalks of fashion week. And what a lot to inspire the future brides! Pure, graphic, romantic, precise, and bohemian, the white dress remains an essential piece for the designers who compete with creativity to reinvent it.
Jean-Paul Gaultier made it the main theme of his latest show, with 61 ways to say yes! With an exuberant, quirky or tuxedo bride. The highlight at Chanel. A pastoral wedding dress, scattered with flowers, feathers, and embroidery, which seduced one happy guest from the show… Elegant and pure fifties heroines at Dior, with a high waist and latex knee high boots, for a retro-futuristic look with the most beautiful effect.
From the first to the last silhouette, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli were celebrating the love for their spring-summer 2015 Valentino haute couture show. The dresses were made in floaty materials, like the lace, tulle, chiffon and overstitched gentle words borrowed from writers and poets.
Giambattista Valli offers a succession of evanescent, twisted dresses with subtle sparkling detailing. Open worked, embroidered with flowers and white pleats, the dress is worn with black strappy heels and a flecked veil. The art deco arabesques designed along the lengths of the arms, the necklines which reveal the top of the bust…the silhouettes from the Atelier Versace show were inspired by the curves of the woman’s body. Which will certainly make the future husband happy!
The princess dresses are the prerogative of the Lebanese designer Elie Saab, adorned with precious and delicate materials, embroidered with crystals and sequins, these dresses in fine lace and embroidered netting announce the bohemian trend and the seventies revival of the season. Stéphane Rolland such an architect of clothes offers new volumes with a play of transparency and a desire for lightness. Equally sculptural at Azzaro, the specialist of evening gowns. Yet again, the designers make us go weak at the knees with the inspiring propositions, with which we’re tempted to say yes!
Jean-Paul Gaultier: Because we’re not obliged to always have a little white dress with lace and everything, you can choose something else, no?
Karl Lagerfeld: For the train of the wedding dress, it took fifteen girls a month to make just the train, and there was a girl from the Middle East who just came with her Mother and ordered the dress.
Stephane Rolland: I want things that float, which move, which travel. Arnaud Maillard: The dress is married to the body of the woman, and for us that was the objective, even if there are several layers of chiffon, one over the other, the chiffon dresses that you see are faded into transparency, and needed 150 hours of stitching.
