Indonesian bridal label Vicario Bride’s 2016 Autumn/Winter “Beaudhulo” collection of delicate wedding dresses in lace, tulle, and chiffon with sheer peekaboo panels for a hint of skin are juxtaposed against the rugged undulating savannah and low limestone hills of Sumba, Indonesia in today’s editorial snapped by Terralogical.
About the collection
“Beau” means “beautiful” in French. “Dhulo” denotes “dust” in Nepalese. Why take inspiration from such locales? France is well-known for its alluring and majestic cities. And Nepal, with its breathtaking nature, has been overshadowed by the recent earthquake that has covered its cities with soot. Drawing inspiration from these, we fused the two opposite concepts. To echo the evolution of the fashion couture industry, Vicario Bride employs “Unseen” as the common thread of the collection. “Unseen” is analogous with transparency, which has strong bonds with dust. The naked eye cannot perceive dust. Vicario’s main purpose is to convey the unseen beauty of dust and to put that into our pieces. White, beige and ivory are the main themes in our latest collection. East Sumba is a location that defines beauty and that complements our designs. A few local destinations that were chosen include Puru Kambera and Bukit Warinding.
