This week, we’re looking into a brilliant new bridal trend which promises to bring more glamour and more sexy to the bridal scene of 2016. Toronto designer Rita Vinieris, the woman behind the “Rivini” brand, is a master of sophisticated, simple bridal and we love the way she deconstructs gowns and delivers an elixir of layers and dimensions that speeds up bridal fashion into a new era of chic.
Spearheading deconstruction trends into her wedding dress collections and onto the international catwalk floor, her aesthetic gravitates towards unique architecture of the bridal dress, while creating a painterly, soft feel for each piece.
With her most recent, Fall 2016 bridal collection, the designer has picked winter as inspiration for the number of ‘glistening’ gowns which feature lace, metallic tulle, organza – all in sundust colours that make the fabric ‘twinkle, twinkle’ gently at every movement.
An innovative concept – “body veils” – has taken over the Fall 2016 collection and makes for a unique sense of being enclosed somewhere between veiling and unveiling, transparent, translucent and opaque all at the same time. Translucent veiling over the 2016 Rivini dresses brings a light play on the surface and depth, something a modern bride might want to identify with – distinction comes at stages and there is always more to discover.
If you’re planning a winter-themed wedding and are looking for inspiration, Rita Vinieris’s imaginary frozen garden that brought this new collection to life might be the perfect starting point for you. If the thought of the first frost and snowflakes brings a picture of delicate lace over shimmering metallic tulle, airiness and sophistication, you can trust this new trend of layering to achieve a look of pristine beauty.
Now, let’s look at four beautiful combinations for a frosty winter wedding with lots of sparkle and immaculate delicacy.
