Leave it to Carolina Herrera to send some of the most sophisticated wedding dresses in the bridal landscape down her Spring 2015 bridal runway. The design element du jour this go-round? Lace, lace, and more lace (the runway's backdrop was even painted with motifs of the classic bridal fabric). And when the lovely wedding-standby wasn't used on gowns, other romantic details — such as airy tulle mermaid skirts and subtle glistening embellishments — graced each design.
A few of our favorite details include a Chantilly lace cape — the show's opener — two-tone lace dresses, shimmering appliqués and intriguing necklines like a scalloped strapless top and princess-worthy off-the-shoulder.
With details like these at the forefront, it's easy to see how Herrera was inspired by "softness and grace, created by the effects of layering, lace treatment and silk silhouettes." Her inspiration statement also explained: "Carolina Herrera designed this collection inspired by the Bride and how she experiences the dress. For her, hidden luxuries abound — tulle layered over embellished Chantilly and Guipure lace, over silk chiffon, supple corseting, hand-stitched seaming detail, placed laser-cut lace motifs and embroideries all follow the feminine form. The effect is romantic and sensual."
