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.

Uncomplicated Elegance

Sweeping through the realm of structured bridal and overdone bohemian like a veritable breath of fresh air, Lola Varma heralds a welcomingly unexpected approach for the modern woman. Co-founded by one of our favourite photographers, Courtney Illfield, this multitalented creative explained how the collection was inspired by the momentum of brides taking control of their own style, dressing in a fashion reflective of both their personality and personal taste (rather than an outdated 'bridal ideal’). 

Conceived in response to a gap she noticed over and over in the bridal market, observations honed from years spent photographing brides (in seemingly uncomfortable, highly structured gowns ill suited to the balmy, relaxed setting of an Australian Spring/Summer),  the inaugural collection Salpare offers fourteen breathtakingly simple pieces, designed to be mixed and matched. In a layering of pure ivory silks and lightweight wools, the collection oozes uncomplicated elegance and effortless sensuality. Perfect for those brides who imagine their night ending with barefoot dancing beneath the stars. Explore the world of Lola Varma here and here.

Dreamily Dark

A designer forever balancing light and darkness with an apparent ease, the latest (goddess channelling, Pagan inspired) collection by George Wu, Wulfilas Message is no exception. Captivated by the ethereal, dreamily dark lookbook, the imagery perfectly showcases the kind of fluid femininity and mix of romantic with unexpectedly daring details (an inherent signature of George's designs), that we've come to know and love. These embellished gowns, perfect for ethereal brides can be found by appointment, at the Brisbane based studio.

Moss Gown

Unabashedly one of our favourite gowns of the season, all iridescent sequins and sea nymph like glamour (featured here in our Push Back the Dawn editorial)… we're obsessing over Carmen Ejogo in Houghton’s moss gown at this weeks Oscars.

Decadent Gowns

We have a long love of a seriously sequined gown! Equal parts decadent, ethereal and alluring, we're dying over these dresses from One Day Bridal in The Lane office today - perfect for both sand swept ceremonies or ethereal Winter weddings.

There's Dhalia, a structured gown, decadently encrusted up top and pooling into a tulle hem at the bottom….then there's Willow, a romantic minx of liquid-like ivory sequins, complete with long sleeves, plunging neckline and a daring split (if there was ever a wedding gown to wear again, it's this one!).

Head to the One Day Bridal website for appointment details and to explore the entire collection.
