Luxe simplicity.

Romanced by simplicity and subtlety, our latest discovery, New York based LEIN is a label that has us dreaming of barefoot beach celebrations, languid post wedding brunches and summer nights in Paris. With a background in PR for the likes of Chanel and career as a celebrity stylist, designer Meredith Stoecklein saw a gaping hole in the world of bridal fashion where understated could be achieved without compromising on luxury. And we can certainly vouch for that, having experienced these exquisite fabrics and masterful cuts up close. Think fluid lines and chic silhouettes, effortless ruffles and unassuming textures. A magic that lies in the way each piece make you feel. Explore the collection here.

Wild at Heart.

That beautiful balance of opulence and effortlessness. Intricate embellishment over silhouettes you can move in. We’re loving the new direction we’re seeing from Anna Campbell, weaving the designer’s signature beading over billowing fabrics. An aesthetic that feels a little more undone, and details like laser cut French lace giving a softer, more delicate finish to her designs.

Standing on Stardust.

With an alchemic intuition of the female form, and the textile fruition of the future feminine, Halfpenny London was born shrouded in ceremony. As a go-to designer for Kate Moss and Rihanna, the rise of Halfpenny London has been stratospheric, in no small part to their flawless silhouettes that espouse both timelessness and a chic modernity. 

Unveiling their stunning new AW 17 Collection ‘STANDING ON STARDUST’ the brand continues its unique expansion into an ether all of their own. To view more of the collection and to enquire about working with Halfpenny London on your wedding gown, see here.

Classique

There's such a shift we're experiencing in bridal. A new wave of boutique labels bursting onto the scene with a fresh perspective, recognising that while we're classicists at heart, we want gowns that feel a little less cliche. We want romance that feels a little undone. It's brands like Anais Anette that have our attention, with their dreamy collections that weave together the beauty of tradition found in hand stiched details, heirloom draping and architectural precision - but blended with a clean contemporary twist. Demure long sleeve gowns in the most exquisite lace, that move a little more fluidly. Delicate embroidered details that reveal hints of skin. The Toronto based duo, sisters Magdalena and Karolina have us obsessed with their latest collection, which you can view over at the Anais Anette website and trunk show dates here.

Liquid Lines.

Masterfully cut silk, falling in liquid lines. We're forever allured by the chic simplicity of slip gowns that are having a little renaisance at the moment... and no one does it quite like A La Robe designer Elizabeth Soljak, with an almost intuitive ability to scuplt fabric over a woman's silhouette. We recently shot a few of our favorites in tints of pearl and the feintest of blush, worn best with an ornate cathedral veil (But we're eyeing off a few of these peices in black worn nonchalently with sneakers or over a simple tee for any day of the week!)

Prêt-à-Party, in Brazil

Our inbox received a beautiful surprise this week, with news of a newly launched Prêt-à-Party Collection by French Bridal Designer (favourite!) Rime Arodaky.  As a Ready to Wear collection inspired by all the gypsies, romantics, minimalists and rock’n’roll babes in her life, the range includes perfect pieces for bridesmaids, engagement parties, wedding brunches and honeymoons, each infused with her inimitable French flair. Think broderie anglaise separates, relaxed dresses for a sandy ceremony, black and white lace cocktail gowns and floor sweeping floral silks.

The campaign (shot in Brazil by another favourite of ours, photographer Greg Finck) exudes the same kind of dreamy sensuality as the collection itself, all breezy effortlessness, oozing joie de vivre. Just add a red lip! Explore the entire Prêt-à-Party collection here, and find the full shoot here.
