With the 'PAPILLON D'AMOUR' collection, designers Alexandra Roehler and Johanna Kühl are presenting their BRIDAL COUTURE for 2015. This season they have turned their attention to a sensually graceful and, at the same time, dainty creature – the butterfly. Because of its lightness and beauty, in Japan the filigree insect is regarded as a symbol of femininity, with two butterflies symbolising wedded bliss.
This idea was at the focus when the designers were creating their seventh collection. Kaleidoscopes of dancing butterflies were embroidered onto tulle, gracefully fluttering skirts and filigree floral motifs like the ‘Lovely Lace’ pattern from France were combined to provide the butterflies with a playground of love.
Multifaceted motifs and a wide variety of materials characterise this 2015 BRIDAL COUTURE collection. Lace, in the most diverse variations, is the designers’ favourite material. To showcase the lace, the highest quality crepe double meets finest silk-organza.
In their airiness and transparency these delicate floral lace creations represent a symbiosis of conventional femininity and cool elegance. Innovative looks are introduced by the designers with the use of knitted silk and alpaca to create lightweight jumpers and casual capes that can be worn casually over the floor-length, opulent lace dresses.
The typical KAVIAR GAUCHE emphasis on the waist is also interpreted in the papillon look – a shiny ivory-coloured bow-style belt gives the wearer both a striking look and a delicate touch.
All 16 dresses of the 'PAPILLON D'AMOUR' collection are hand-sewn and finished in Germany in an elaborate couture tailoring process.
Romantic lace creations with floral beauty, a kaleidoscope of swirling butterflies and modern silhouettes offer a glimpse of what the ideal bride of 2015 will look like, defined by feminine power and pure elegance.
