The Italian Pavilion in Barcelona was chosen by Pronovias as the venue to present the new “Le Ciel” collection. Their shows always generate a huge level of excitement, all the more so this time thanks to the spectacular ethereal scene they created at the venue, not to mention the stunning models and a front row littered with famous faces. First to open the show was the gorgeous Irina Shayk, followed by a host of other top models such as Romee Strijd, Cindy Bruna, Jac Jagaciak and Kate Grigorieva who walked the runway in serious style.
Under a starry sky setting Hervè Moreau, creative director of Pronovias for brides 2017, unveiled the new collection and had us lusting over every one of the elegant couture dresses on offer. First came designs featuring smooth lines and fabrics that gracefully drape over the body in an elegant manner, made all the more impressive thanks to the rhinestone details on the shoulders and back and seductive thigh high slits. Come the second part of the show, we saw a classic line with voluminous skirts and mermaid cuts to give a more sleek look, layers of tulle with delicate embroidery and beading all of which made the collection sophisticated as well as sexy. All using the high quality fabrics like lace, chantilly, crepe, taffeta and chiffon that we’ve come to expect from such a high end bridal fashion house.
Overall, the collection was well varied in terms of the silhouettes and styles but with delicate femininity and elegance being the common feature tying each of the designs together. This gallery is full of everything a bride to be would want from a bridal collection. The gown that really stood out for us was the Niara, as spectacularly modelled by Irina Shayk at the close of the show, a fitted demure crepe gown with an absolutely stunning back exposing design. It made a real impression at the show, leaving everyone speechless. The perfect grand finale.
