What used to be a grand finale at couture shows, the wedding dress proved its place in the ready-to-wear market during Spring 2020 shows. Take Loewe, which tests the eye and vocabulary with bleached guipure, chantilly, and voile. In between bouts of neon, Valentino serves looks of pure white. Oscar De La Renta’s mix of semi-sheer ivory gowns and woven raffia numbers take you from wedding to honeymoon. Needless to say, these 20 all-white looks will make you want to get married. Again. And again.
