Amsale Fall 2021 Wedding Dress Collection
See all of the newest wedding dresses from the Amsale Fall 2021 collection.
Founded in 1985, Amsale established itself as a couture fashion house with designs known for being both understated and entirely elegant. And its newest wedding dress collection is no different. "The collections are very tightly edited, but each piece is special and especially considered for each different bride," says Margo Lafontaine, design director at Amsale. "The current times have given extra meaning to getting dressed up—so there's a little more drama, a little more attention to detail, craft, and texture."
The Amsale Fall 2021 wedding dress collection was created at the design house's Manhattan atelier and is a reflection of the bridal fashion designs that have swept through the design world for over the last three decades. Amsale truly got its start when its namesake creator Amsale Aberra could not find a dress for her own wedding in the mid-1980s. Her legacy lives on in the latest collection, which focuses on meeting the big-day fashion needs of today's bride. In short, this means making the wedding dress the eye-catching part of the big day as weddings are becoming more intimate amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The brand's latest designs include bold embellishments, such as crystal-encrusted shoulder straps and sashes that extend beyond the length of the wedding dress' train. Staying true to Amsale's original vision, there are a number of gowns with more subtle features in the collection, like sheer textures and hand-painted details. This season, the brand is continuing its fashion-forward approach to the big day with removable pieces—notably in the line's signature raffia-stitched organza ballgown with a bodice overlay a bride can take off to create a new look. "It goes from strapless to jewel-neck with a cap sleeve," Lafontaine explains of the piece. "In times like these, there's a need for flexibility."
