The drama and overt femininity of Victorian-era brides is hard to beat and for Yolancris' SS17 collection, the Barcelona-based sisters Yolanda and Cristina Pérez have looked to the past to create a show-stopping series of designs. Covered in lace, organza and embroidered tulles with the finest beading, they feature the tight bodices and full skirts of the Victorian age, with the buoyant sleeves and regal floral patterns of the Renaissance.
