Sareh Nouri - Spring 2017

Luca Tombolini /
Sareh Nouri writes the book — or rather designs the dresses — of wedding dreams. The Parisian designer is well-known for her use of luxurious laces and classic styling, and that same romantic sensibility is evident within her Spring 2017 wedding dresses — a collection that revels in femininity and a classic type of beauty. Sareh Nouri's gorgeous gowns remind us what falling in love is all about — the effortlessness of it, actually, thanks to Nouri's natural and organic silhouettes and easy elegance. For her Fall 2016 collection last season, the designer pulled from her Parisan heritage for inspirations. "The fabrics, laces, and patterns that I selected and designed for this collection are reminiscent of an ancient, yet modern artistic culture," said Nouri, as she flirted with a plunging neckline here or an architectural train there. But the collection was still, at its core, quietly stunning, relying on expert craftsmanship and timeless details to pack its punch. And for brides who'd rather forgo the glitz and glam and endless array of sparkly bodices in lieu of something more classic, Sareh Nouri is a breath of fresh air. Sareh Nouri's latest line, Spring 2017, also plays to the romantic eras of yesteryear with all of its lovely, lacy frocks and demure illusion sleeves. The collection's overall look is timeless, soft, and effortlessly ethereal. And the romantic details snuck into every seam are making us fall head-over-heels in love. Some of our faves? A sweetheart column gown with an illusion neckline and exquisite Baroque embroidery, an A-line off-the-shoulder wedding dress with sheer lace sleeves and scalloped hem, and a sweet-yet-sultry fit-and-flare number all top our list. But just because this collection is swimming in classic elements, doesn't mean it's not right on-trend, too! A ball gown with a tiered skirt and bold floral appliqués adorning the sleeves and bodice embodies some recent runway fads. A traditional tulle dress got majorly modern with a Pantone color hue. And one of Nouri's timeless lace sheaths was gussied up with the addition of a tulle overskirt. Old-world romance with a dash of trendy details? Where do we sign up?
