Lace-obsessed brides have met their match in Olvi’s. The brand is built on its signature French stretch lace featuring an exclusive floral pattern. With every dress hand-sewn from start to finish by one seamstress — and complete customization available — the line aims to give brides a “completely couture experience” in just 10 weeks. The best part? The stretch lace fabric is designed to give a flawless fit and figure-flattering comfort. (Hello, curves!).
For its spring 2019, the label looked to (what else?) the upcoming royal wedding as its muse. The collection takes the baroque tradition of extravagant, maximalist ornamentation to its, well, max. Textural embroidery, crystal- and pearl-encrusted beading, and sprays of ostrich feathers adorn many of the gowns. A show-stopping A-line gown is covered from cap sleeve to train hem in a flight of appliquéed butterflies. The intricate filigree pattern of a figure-hugging mermaid gown with a strapless illusion neckline and pooling train curves around the body in symmetrical scrolls and latticework, calling to mind a classical Corinthian column. If anyone’s ever called an Olvi’s bride “over the top,” she definitely took it as a compliment.
