MUSE by Berta's 2018 lookbook takes you on a sultry journey to romantic Sicily. With a collection of gowns that walk the line between sexy and romantic, MUSE's sophisticated style is right at home with sister label Berta's signature glam aesthetic. We particularly adore this season's high slits and diaphanous skirts, perfect for a bit of wedding day drama.
Celestial and dreamy, the Spring 2018 collection from Galia Lahav's sister label GALA was inspired by individuality and elegance with a boho-edge. Handmade in Tel-Aviv, these ethereal gowns combine tulle, embroidery and floral appliqués in a variety of silhouettes perfect for millennial brides.
Inspired by the song "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," mother-daughter design duo, Mira and Lihi Zwillinger gave timeless silhouettes a romantic upgrade for Spring 2018. Featuring hand-cut floral appliqué and sky blue hues (echoing the song's opening line), amongst feathers and balloon sleeves, these enchanting gowns are evidence that, as Judy sings, "Dreams really do come true."
Juxtaposed against contemporary interpretations of Arabic architecture, here we showcase some of this season’s most statement-making gowns. Pattern and light are explored through mashrabiya, a form of latticework that uses geometric shapes to provide shade, resulting in patterned sunlight where light passes through.
