THE CRYSTAL COLLECTION – SPRING SUMMER 2020
A new decade is approaching and we are looking longingly into the future: Kaviar Gauche is taking its 2020 Bridal Couture collection as an opportunity to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the bridal line and at the same time the 15th anniversary of the brand.
The show was attended by the creme de la creme of the international social media scene such as Caro Daur, Viktoria Rader, Nina Süss, models and socialites Elena Carriere and Shermine Shahrivar and artist Oda Jaune.
With a total of 24 looks – all made in Germany – designers Alexandra Roehler and Johanna Kühl take their customers on a journey through time. In addition to their bridal couture designs, they present a diverse range of evening gowns, party dresses and two-piece suits, a homage to their revolutionary beginnings over 15 years ago as a German luxury label for contemporary ready-to-wear.
Inspired by festivals and celebrations from the great decades of glamour, Kaviar Gauche’s typical style is reflected in a modern look and in a new interpretation. French elegance meets the spirit of the avant-garde and skilfully breaks with the feeling of luxury and lived rebellion against the rules of classical dressing.
Modernity and coolness are ensured by men’s couture influences, appearing here with transparent inserts. The result is a flowing, feminine silhouette with grunge elements, a theme that runs through the entire collection.
Floral metallic embroidery adds sparkle to the modern woman. In addition to silver glitter and pure silver as the main colour ways for accessories, ivory, champagne and cream dominate the colour palette of the collection. Another classic from Kaviar Gauche is being upgraded this season: the metallic silver belt – worn as a belt bag at the waist and with extra-long fringing – is celebrating a comeback.
The statement accessories of the collection skilfully break with the soft ephemerality of the pieces: silk organza, viscose, silk stretch and crystal fabrics set the tone here and are partly refined with additional crystal elements.
For the first time the designer duo is presenting an oversized bridal suit in elegant ivory. The extra wide flared pants exude a Seventies vibe, giving the style a cool edgy look. A floor-length blazer dress is rounded off with plissee puff sleeves, symbolising the essence of the collection: clean-cut ready-to-marry looks with extravagant detailing become real dream dresses for special occasions. Elaborately draped details such as organza flounces, fringes, puffy sleeves and sparkling details are used here.
Kaviar Gauche is focusing on oversize for the year 2020, literally freeing the bride from her restrictive corset. Wide sleeve accents and sculptural, wide swinging capes and kaftan pieces offer the modern bride of today a full range of choice when it comes to fashion, allowing the bride’s imagination free reign.
All dresses will be available from November in the Kaviar Gauche Bridal Concept Stores in Berlin, Munich and Düsseldorf, as well as a selection online at www.kaviargauche.com
In addition to the Kaviar Gauche accessories, jewellery by Sabrina Dehoff and Saskia Diez will also be shown.
The show’s beauty look was created in collaboration with Loni Bauer, head of make-up on behalf of Catrice.
