This Couture Dress Is Made Entirely of Glass Bubbles

Iris van Herpen is known for her architectural, technologically innovative designs, and her latest collection is no exception. For her F/W 16 couture presentation, the Dutch designer presented a stunning assortment of out-of-this-world looks, including one dress made of glass spheres. 

According to Elle, van Herpen used hand-blown glass bubbles and silicon in the design of the dress. A close-up shows hundreds of light-reflecting spheres, which give the dress a gorgeous, ethereal vibe. We can only imagine how painstaking it was to create this one-of-a-kind stunner.
