Even if you’re not ready to tie the knot just yet, we can all appreciate a good fit when we see one. The great thing about weddings is that it’s the one day to shine, where the cameras (and grails) are out. We’ve taken a look at some of the strongest bridal slays for your viewing pleasure. Read our round-up below.
Saying yes in Yohji Yamamoto for Spring 1999
Yohji Yamamoto has forever gone against the grain, sticking to a muted colour palette when brands such as Gucci and Versace dominated with bold and overtly luxury designs. For Yamamoto’s Spring 99 collection, a bridal theme was extended into each look, with individual dresses containing a story.
“Here Comes The Bride”, could be heard soundtracking the gracious movements of the models, as texture was added to the monochrome offering. The show was remembered for “The Secret Dress”, where a white bodice revealed a linen cape, headwear and white gloves. Fashion shows were just cooler back then!
Bridal Bella by Virgil Abloh
Don’t get it twisted; Bella Hadid isn’t married, but she did a great job of convincing us during Off-White’s Fall 22 show, the final presentation designed by Virgil Abloh. The traditional dress was paired with trainers and a hat embellished with the phrase “1st is for love”, a poignant statement reflecting Abloh’s attitude to everything he did.
Sophie Turner said “love ya” in Louis Vuitton
Sophie Turner tied the knot to Joe Jonas in the splendour of Le Château de Tourreau, a dreamy part of the French countryside. It was only right that the dress was Louis Vuitton. A V-neckline, square shoulders and long lace sleeves, combined with leather satin and silk detailing to finish the iconic design.
Hailey Bieber’s bespoke bridal slay
Virgil demonstrated the full extent of his design skills on this project, crafting a bespoke Virgil Abloh for Off-White dress for Hailey and Justin Bieber’s wedding. When Hailey Baldin became Hailey Bieber, her bespoke Virgil Abloh for Off-White dress stole the show. The dress featured a modern veil and all-over pearl embellishment, finished with classic Off-White lettering reading “Till Death Do Us Part” in the brand’s signature exclamation marks.
Y/Project for the big day
Y/Project creative director Glenn Martens designed a custom wedding dress for his friend Lily Standefer at the weekend, designing a glorious asymmetrical design and assuming the role of personal stylist on the day. NGL, we wish we could have Glenn Martens kit us out for the big day.
