Vogue Exclusive: 2018 Collection release

 

“We thrive on expression, movement and risk-taking, all these deeply resonate with our design ethos that works to build on tradition, and in turn, create something new” said Phoebe

 

The design duo behind Lola Varma ,Courtney and Phoebe, have released their annual bridal

collection. Heavily inspired by the time we live in— of women taking control of their style and

defying fashion expectations. The new range offers a diversity of modern looks for women who

seek to intrigue.

Bewildered by the untamed nature of Indonesia, the designers photographed the new collection

among the loftiest of leaves in Bali.

This collection’s silhouette explores Lola Varma’s signature of minimalism, ripening the concept

with an undertone of fun. A stronger focus on gowns, sees sophisticated designs with sultry

finishes. Dresses peeling away at the shoulders, low backs and rising leg splits appear tastefully

throughout the 10 piece collection. Season transcending two-pieces are ever present including

innovative skirts in deconstructed frills and rich pleats, matched with lustrous balloon sleeve

blouses and lightweight camisoles with romantic necklines. Traditional ivory fabrications of liquid

silks is still prominent, now with bolder adornments of statement buttons and 60’s inspired gold

belts and polka dot veils. All of which nod to a timeless femininity and sophistication.

The two friends, who are the sole force behind the labels creative direction, combine their efforts

as photographer and stylist.

“We thrive on expression, movement and risk-taking, all these deeply resonate with our design

ethos that works to build on tradition, and in turn, create something new” said Phoebe

“We invite women to have fun with their wedding outfit”.

“There’s a stronger sense of sensuality in this collection”, said photographer and designer Courtney.
