This editorial is a creative tribute to the wonderful 90s as they are trending again in 2022 and are more present in the fashion world than ever. The whole team of suppliers belongs to that generation, and we identify very much with that fresh, urban, and colorful aesthetic. The goal was to reinvent the most representative trends of that decade such as neon colors, graffiti, skate culture, and oversized garments in an eye-catching but elegant way. These are very striking and intense elements that we wanted to refine and relax to design a different and inspiring wedding. To create this session, we were inspired by the fashion, music, and cinema of the 90s, so you can see many references to it in the decoration, especially in the stationery and in the seating plan. The overall design is based on the range of neon colors (pink, yellow, and orange) that we used for all corners of the decoration, flowers, and the couple’s accessories.
For the celebration, we chose a casual and bare space with a colorful aesthetic that transmits the artistic hooligan vibe we were looking for. A huge warehouse dedicated to skateboarding and full of graffiti is the perfect setting to tell the story of this romance on wheels. We used the outdoor area for the ceremony creating an "altar" with the basket and the graffiti in the purest Banksy style. It just needed a flower waterfall for this backdrop to emit the 90s essence.
For the banquet table, we mounted a tabletop on concrete pieces to give it that industrial, cold look. Simple white and gray elements let the colorful accents like the candles and flowers bring all the warmth and shine. We used cassette tapes as placeholders and chose tableware with neon touches. Nothing compares to it! The seating plan was designed to match the graffiti that was behind it. Transparent Methacrylate signs with fuchsia vinyl decorated the concrete blocks with our favorite love songs of the time.
The bride's look is fun, comfortable, and youthful. Inspired by a tailored suit jacket, it is composed of a maxi blazer and a mini skirt. The jewel buttons are the perfect detail to add a classy touch and elevate the look. The tie creates contrast lending a masculine vibe to such a romantic look. Underneath, we find a transparent shirt with fantasy sleeves and a fluorescent yellow tube top–such a 90s classic. The shoes, veil, earrings, and makeup break with the traditional bridal look and makes it suitable for a more modern and daring bride. The groom's focal garment is a Tetris print blazer, combined with a classic polo shirt and sneakers for the perfect skater look. In short, it is an attempt to refine the 90s street style transforming it into the most exquisite and refined part of a wedding–both romantic and fun.
