Fashion: Vera Wang Spring 2016 Collection

Eschewing traditional bridal runways for the second season now, Vera Wang has launched her sizzling Spring 2016 collection with another short film Hotel Madrid. The collection, while featuring romantic and whimsical dresses that the designer has become so well-loved for, takes a different direction, as it loads on the sensuality and sexual overtones with more skin exposed and sweaty, hot and heavy styling choices.

On the collection and the short film, Wang said, “Hotel Madrid. The beauty freedom mystery and intoxication of Spain. Intimate and personal, these Women inspire a subtle yet nonchalant sexuality. Louche, lazy, luxurious. This is fashion through a youthful yet sophisticated lens.”

We at Wedding & Travel love the artistic edge that Vera Wang has injected to bridal fashion with her conceptual looks that exude a dangerous charm. However, we do feel that the pieces from her Spring 2016 collection definitely fare lower on their wearability — we can imagine how few real brides would be comfortable in baring so much skin (in challenging cuts no less) on their big day! We are curious to see how these dresses can be paired with more practical pieces to make them work in a ready-to-wear setting.
