For “Papillon D’Amour”, Kaviar Gauche designers Alexandra Fischer-Roehler and Johanna Kühl turned to the butterfly for inspiration. The 2015 Bridal Couture collection from the Berlin-based fashion label features sixteen chic and ethereal wedding dresses that encapsulate the exquisite lightness and sensual grace of the dainty creature.
“Because of its lightness and beauty, in Japan the filigree insect is regarded as a symbol of femininity, with two butterflies symbolizing 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.”
The Papillon D’Amour collection is hand-sewn and finished in Germany. A selection of Kaviar Gauches wedding dresses can be purchased online.
