Vera Wang has been known to push the envelope with her bridal collections (remember last spring’s all-red lineup?), and for spring 2014 she didn’t disappoint. She opened her show with two minimalist looks — ivory silk crepe mermaid gowns, one V-neck, the other strapless — but then quickly veered into more edgy territory with a black-and-white palette. One strapless dress, for example, was styled with a black harness-like overlay and leather opera-length gloves, while a Chantilly lace mermaid gown looked avant-garde with a netted high-neck top. “It’s a new way for me to look at sophistication and sensuality,” said Wang before the show. “There is more skin showing, and some sportswear references.”
