Normally, wedding gowns are made with chiffon, tulle, silk, and lace. In addition to being beautiful, the delicate fabrics are generally lightweight and fluid, which lend well to walking down an aisle, kissing, and dancing. But Diesel has offered untraditional brides an alternative: denim.
For the opening of two new stores in Tokyo, Japan, designer Nicola Formichetti created white denim dresses and jean tuxedos for a fake marriage between models. But these creations are nothing like Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears’ iconic blue jean looks. Instead, the outfits are actually quite elegant, albeit a little on the heavy side.
One of the looks has been crafted in a completely conventional silhouette — strapless with a tight bodice billowing out at the waist into a voluminous skirt — despite its uncommon material. The piece was embellished with 3D-printed flowers in white and light blue denim.
A denim wedding dress would certainly be for the trend-bucking bride. But those wanting even more avant-garde, Diesel also produced a mini denim dress.
With a knee-grazing hemline, a buckle across the bust, and flowers adorning the shoulders, the dress definitely isn’t for the faint of heart.
Finding a bride bold enough to dare to wear either of these ensembles on their big day would be tough. But any taker would look totally cool.
