Barcelona designer label YolanCris has a new couture occasion collection that is just perfect for red-carpet events – and for brides who want to add colour and sparkle to their wedding celebration
YolanCris is a Barcelona couture label that has always stood apart from the crowd. Founded by sisters Yolanda and Cristina in 2005, it almost instantly carved a niche for its take on boho glamour. Edgy, often surprising and with a sexy flourish. Influences from period to hippy chic to disco (at the cutting-edge Studio 54 end) have permeated its collections and the materials are exceptional.
The YolanCris evening range has not been short of high-profile fans, from Lady Gaga and Beyoncé to Shakira. But we think this couture collection of eveningwear is going to appeal to anyone who is looking for standout pieces. It’s smart, sophisticated and extremely luxurious.
There are pieces that would be perfect for brides who don’t want to marry in white or are looking for an extra gown to take them to the post-ceremony ball. Glamorous guests and mothers of the bride will also find high-octane dresses with timeless appeal.
With YolanCris, it’s all in the details. This means fine laces and lavish period references in the mix. We are particularly taken with a full-length coat featuring exquisite embroidered flowers with a strong Oriental influence. This would look ravishing over a white, blush or gold wedding gown.
There’s also a stunning pink strapless gown – pure 1950s Hollywood glamour and perfect for the grandest ball. As with all YolanCris pieces, an incredible amount of work goes into these fine embellishments.
Unusual prints feature, along with burnout effects in some gowns. You will also find guaranteed head-turners, including plunge-neck designs, bodycon shapes and transparent elements. And there’s a fairytale lace dress with beautiful soft pleating in the skirt and crystals for added sparkle.
YolanCris’ flagship store is in Barcelona and with a second store in São Paulo, Brazil. The bridal collection has stockists around the globe. For more information and local stores, visit yolancris.com
