As a bride-to-be, I was curious to check out Viktor and Rolf’s Bridal Collection when I saw the headlines while catching up on fashion news. I first discovered the brand from one of H&M’s many collaborations back in 2006. Marriage, the name of this six-piece collection is part of the Resort 2014 collection. I love the Dutch designers’ avant-garde take on bridal wear. While I’ve already bought my dress, I can totally see myself wearing the first three pieces out of the collection. I would wear the first dress for wedding and perhaps the jumpsuit or shorter dress for civil ceremony. I think the jumpsuit would also be a great alternative for lesbian couples. Also, how cute are those bow sandals to match the jumpsuit?! That aside, while I like the idea of a shirt dress, I’m not a fan of hi-low hems. If it wasn’t, I’d wear that too! 😉
Which is your favorite piece of this collection, if any? 🙂
Here are 3 short fashion clips that I came across recently and would love to share with you, my fellow readers.
The Cabat Retrospective
I have a Bottega Veneta Medium Veneta that I bought few years back but I barely used it. Watching this video reminded me of my bag and the quality craftsmanship of the brand. Sadly, I no longer use the bag even though it’s a classic in my books. It’s a case of wanting a bag and then coming to the realization that it isn’t what I thought it would be or fitting my lifestyle. 🙁 I have finally come to my senses and have listed it for sale here, should you be interested.
Art in Fashion
I’m usually not a huge fan of Roberto Cavalli but watching this has made me look more into the brand’s collection. That aside, as a frugal shopper, I can now truly appreciate the quality fabric of high end designers, although I am aware that not every brand/designer hand paints their fabrics. I know Hermes does, thus the price of their scarf as evidenced here. This is a case where I can understand part of the price comes with a reason, not just a designer name slapped on an item!
Prada Spring/Summer 2013 Advertising Campaign
Models are often faces without a voice and this Prada ad campaign was an excellent way to put a voice to a face, so to speak. I love Sasha Pivovarova back from her early days in modeling alongside Gemma Ward with their doll-faced features.
