Spain’s Sophie et Voilà, the brainchild of creative director Sofia Arribas and CEO Saioa Goitia, have shown the bridal brand’s 2021 collection, Hydrangea.
Sophie et Voilà is known for clean, minimalist styles, a welcome departure from some of the overly complex shapes that have been seen on catwalks of late. Hydrangea, meanwhile, has been inspired by the flower itself, which grows abundantly in the Basque country.
As the label explains, the flower goes from nothing to everything each year: ‘the hydrangea is a flower that sprouts with the security of knowing that every spring it will be spectacular. Like Sophie et Voilà.’
The designs reflect the different stages of the annual cycle of the hydrangea: minimalist; others like ‘an explosion of leaves’; and the remainder ‘designs that appear like a flowering of clean romanticism.’
