Irreverent, euphoric and unconventional. If yours is anything but a royal wedding, then the right dress will be signed by Vivienne Westwood.
The capsule collection by Andreas Kronthaler was presented during the New York Bridal Week, clearing up the latest classicism of the wedding look: in the capsule collection dedicated to the bride, Andreas Kronthaler honored his Austrian roots and the work of Vivienne Westwood creating a genderless collection that includes jackets, skirts, dresses and corsets. A circus de soleil where the clothes seem to be dedicated to a contemporary art exhibition rather than to a wedding reception, without losing the identity of high craftsmanship.The hand-woven fabrics are embellished with floral embroidery, the men’s silk suspenders transform maxi skirts into elegant silk twill, tulle or silk jacquard dresses. The removable veils are an integral part of the clothes and can be worn in various ways. Asymmetric fluid dresses in silk satin say goodbye to the classic meters and meters of taffeta. Organza corsets with printed or embroidered roses are paired with taffeta skirts with a historical allure. Invitation to total white, the accessories are very high plateau fire red, wide-brimmed hats in electric blue and black sneakers. The rule is not to have rules, even the veil is amaranth red, worn as a turban. Goodbye to wide skirts, precious details and flowers in your hair.
The innovative fabric cutting techniques have created unique square and organic shapes to underline the distinctive beauty of the bride and her personal style. A very personal interpretation of orange blossoms that of Andreas Kronthaler, who marrying the creativity of Vivienne Westwood dresses the most nonconformist bride to be on the planet.
