Inspired by a recent trip there, the collection blends the country's historical charm through a color palette of bronze tones, shades of red, wine, golds, and rich chocolate browns. Touches of sunset and soft pastels, ice blues, blush, ivory, and nudes also abound. Velvet, sequins, and jacquard, and cashmeres offer rich texture, reflecting the plush ambiance of the country's historic interiors, while Roland's ever present intricate embroideries such as draped pearl fringe, 3D organza flowers, and gold feather roses stunned the crowd. In particular, a pearl embroidered tulle wedding gown.
