Something old, something new, something borrowed, and something...rouge. The lacquered red soles of Christian Louboutin took to the runways yet again this spring, this time in collaboration with three Bridal Fashion Week designers – Naeem Khan, Jenny Packham, and Marchesa. At Marchesa Bridal’s Spring 2016 collection presentation, it was petals upon petals.
Flowers, blooms and blossoms were expressed wistfully throughout the collection through intricate threadwork, 3-D fabric petals, floral beading and feather flowers. The overtly feminine gowns were complemented by several Christian Louboutin styles including
classics old and new like the So Kate, Pigalle Follies and Decollete 312 in white patent and kid leather, as well as the new Dalida in white patent, boasting a new Louboutin signature – the wavy mirage heel.
Naeem Khan’s bride was a glamorous one. Re fined and seductive silhouettes were detailed with rich beading and floral sequins. With artistry as the focus, each dress took inspiration from a destination – be it Saint-Tropez or Sorrento. To close the show, the San Francisco bride walked the runway in a memorable ivory satin sequin tuxedo jacket and matching pant, complemented by the glittering, strappy Toerless Muse - also seen on the Fall 2016 runway for Khan. Inspired by the enchanted environment and characters of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Jenny Packham’s 2016 Bridal Collection offered soft silhouettes and delicate colours including ivory, aqua and blush, along with textured twists and unexpected embellishments. Pleats, draping, and beading made the back of gowns as memorable as the front, and classic, high and low-heeled Louboutin styles let the dresses take center stage. Taking inspiration from the runways of Bridal Fashion Week, Christian Louboutin will feature weddingfocused images from fans and followers through the month of May. If your wedding included a flash of red as you walked down the aisle, tag your Instagram image with #SomethingRouge or #LouboutinWorld.
