For over 15 years, sisters Yolanda and Cristina have been fusing haute couture with bridal fashion for their label, Yolancris. Every design is handcrafted in their Atelier in Barcelona, with beautiful fabrics, meticulous attention to detail and the greatest passion. Their latest collection, Identity, is inspired by a range of great female fashion icons like Grace Jones and Coco Chanel, who felt free to wear whatever they wanted, and embraced their style as part of who they were. The collection combines a whole array of styles and influences. This is true wedding fashion.
Here are our 5 Star favourite five, but you can see the full collection here.
Layered with lace, an intricate neckline and sweet sleeves that combine a dropped shoulder, chunky strap, cutouts and long applique, there’s so much to this elegant dress. I love the combination of bold applique with soft neckline.
A simple sheath shape, this one has an optional shrug top, from which a circular train flows. Such a clever way to incorporate a train, and a cute addition that can be removed for different elements of your day. I love the big, bold applique flowers, and the texture they create. Perfect for a bride with a bold personality.
A far cry from your mum’s wedding dress! But this is haute couture wedding fashion! Sleek chic fabric, thigh slits and pockets. Accented with a sparkling belt and strapless feature bodice, this one’s perfectly glam.
A high-low hemline needs statement shoes! Or is it the other way round?! Either way, this is the perfect dress to give a touch of the traditional to your couture gown. A perfectly cute strapless sweetheart neckline leads down to intricate beading and layers of tulle skirt. Effortlessly pretty, with so much detail.
Raons’ tucked skirt is a bold statement, contrasting beautifully with the whisper light bodice, free of structure, with a floating overlay and pretty lace layer. Another one calling for a statement shoe, this combination is set off with scattered sparkles across the bodice.
