Viktor & Rolf Present “Mariage”

With New York Bridal Week came the introduction of Viktor&Rolf’s 2018 Spring/Summer Bridal collection—each dress in the collection presenting a distinct, autonomous character, and each with its own striking silhouette. The collection is comprised of illustrative A-line dresses, graceful  column dresses, voluminous ball gowns, tailored jumpsuits and playful short dresses—all representative of the continued evolution of bridalwear by prominent fashion designers Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren. Regarding this collection, Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren affirm: “We are excited to continue our exploration of the wedding dress. While designing, we are looking for something bold, architectural, unfussy yet spectacular, with an emphasis on a precise, outspoken silhouette. To support this vision, we favor compact, structured fabrics and graphic bold, outspoken embellishments.”

Some highlights from Mariage:
