The Virēre collection from Hermione de Paula takes inspiration the ideas of transformation and renewal. Also inspired by underwater gardens, waterfalls and ruffled clam shells, layers of soft silks, tulles, organza and lace are combined with hand-painted silks and 3D silk organza flowers to create an edit of interchangeable separates so brides can wear them again in the future. The brand can also create unique artwork for the bride to be added to the piece – favourites include flowers and hand-painted secret messages, as well as meaningful dates or initials.
