FASHION | IN FULL BLOOM WITH CAROLINA HERRERA

With a lineup of fresh bridal gowns blooming with delicate floral details, the Fall 2018 bridal collection by Carolina Herrera couldn’t be more fitting for spring and summer brides. Classic, feminine, and with a hint of contemporary minimalism, these gowns are incredibly versatile and can be worn whether you’re walking down the aisle in Hawaii or at private villa in St. Tropez.


One springtime showstopper includes a floor-skimming gown with delicate mesh sleeves, V-neckline, and embroidered flowers stemming from the skirt’s hem. A wide belt around the waist adds a modern and tailored touch, while the floral accents offer a subtle pop of color. Ruffled pastel platform pumps by Charlotte Olympia sets off the hemline, while a whimsical jeweled butterfly accessory from K. Brunini provides a sparkling nod to the spring season.

Continuing with the spring flower theme, Carolina Herrera’s cap sleeve bridal gown with a transparent back is decked with blooming florals and a simple row of buttons – very “classically bridal,” yet with a fresh take. Be sure to wear your hair up in a lovely chignon or bridal ponytail to show off the gown’s design, and add another botanical element to your bridal look with a sweet daisy bracelet from Lalique. Rustic weddings and ceremonies in the English countryside would be especially apropos.

Playing off the shape of petals and lush florals, the Carolina Herrera Fall 2018 also includes a traditional bridal gown with an untraditional tiered skirt. We love the shape and volume of this dress, which is tempered by a modest and fitted bodice – of course, complete with white flower appliques. All it takes is a flowing veil, and you’re set for a romantic wedding in the American South, Napa’s wine country, or even a chapel in Rome.

Available at Jin Wang Bride and Julian Gold.
