Laying your eyes on the Spring 2019 Bridal Collection from Hermione De Paula is like being entranced by a fanciful mirage. Trust us! Layers of gauzy fabrics are blown about in the wind, never forsaking their ability to captivate and inspire. And we’ll just let ourselves be swept away by their mystical beauty too, thank you very much.
Gossamer blossoms andintricate embroidery intermingle across the delicate fabrics, and there is endless beauty to behold.
You may be wondering who Abeona is too. After all, the desert makes for a pretty flowerless garden. She is a powerful Roman goddess. A protector of travelers embarking on life’s new journeys. It couldn’t be a more perfect fit when we think about the way these gowns mimic blooms growing from every pinpoint of the globe. New journeys. Fresh beginnings. So naturally, all the feels!
What’s more, Hermione De Paula gowns are the ultimate form of bespoke. They include special personal touches such as secret messages, names and dates woven into the floral design in a concealed but present way. So unique, and we would totally be taking advantage of that opp.
We were pretty stoked to see this unique number, with crazy cool back action and a pink ombre train. Flutter sleeves, a boho corset bodice and hand drawn blooms are pulling us in closer!
Sophisticated and femme, this one is the ultimate definition of class, and we’re certainly feeing the essence of spring here!
The illusion of petals falling off from the dress itself? We’re loving the way this long-sleeve gem plays with the eyes!
So truth be told, this Hermione De Paula collection is spilling over with wedding dress inspiration (and perhaps a little faux floral envy). If your heart beat faster when you spotted one dress in particular, let us know in the comments below! As for us, we’ll be over here weighing the pros and cons of buying a wedding dress for the sheer fabulosity of wearing it, rather than necessarily having a wedding in the works.
