Kim Kassas Prima Ballerina bridal collection
30 Nov 2020
It began with ballet for founder Kim Kassas and designer Dor Yaakov dance for the Israeli label's latest arrival: Prima Ballerina
Mirroring the iconic Swan Lake performance, the Prima Ballerina collection by Kim Kassas references ballet's graceful and controlled movements.
Kassas and Yaakov nod to the modern ballerina with this romantic assortment of gowns that offers a distinct, delicate precision.
Meticulous attention to detail is at the heart of Prima Ballerina with craftsmanship featuring dainty embroidery, pearl embellishments, soft ostrich feathers, and beaded fringe accents.
The silhouettes take center stage with contemporary takes on the ballerina's uniform; the leotard and tutu - seamlessly translating to bridal with slim waist bodices, voluminous skirts, lace-up corsets and x-straps.
Texture also emphasises dance with swaths of ethereal fabrics like smooth tulle, silk chiffon, and Solstiss lace crafted in a flattering color palette of ivory, subtle pink hues, and a nude underlining.
Adorned on four dresses within the collection is a swan embroidery — a reference to Tchaikovsky and Rasquin's masterpiece performance.
Perfect for the modern bride with an appreciation of Old World drama.
