Galia Lahav makes some of the MOST beautiful gowns out there, and this latest collection–titled “Victorian Affinity”–is a breathtaking example of that. With delicate textured laces, deep colored backgrounds, and amazing Victorian-inspired details such as high collars, capes and sleeves (which are also detachable!), and a color palette of porcelain ivory, dusted silver, washed pinks and smoky blush among others, you truly feel like you’re transported back in time…but in such a modern way! More from the designer on their inspiration, below:
“‘Victorian Affinity’ is inspired, first and foremost, by our ‘Victorian Affair’ evening couture collection, the outstanding Victorian era in England and its parallel phase in France, “LeBelle Epoque.” These periods were characterized by changes and innovations in various fields, such as the Industrial Revolution. The day to day atmosphere was recognized with optimism, and so we added our touch of romance and admiration to the feminine body. We dedicate this collection to Jeanne Margaine-Lacroix, a designer that challenged the victorian style, in it’s era and, made a change of how we perceive femininity. A bridal gown should be treated and fitted with love and care, as carried on a bride in her wedding day, and so we bring you our perception of it. Our Victorian affinity.”
