Trickling through into New York’s Spring 2017 Bridal week, some of our favourites brought forth collections spilling with romantic ruffles of Chantilly lace and ethereal waves of free flowing silk. Feminine, yes, however there’s a modernity that underpins these pieces, rescuing them from straying into overtly ‘sweet’ territory. Think daringly placed lace panels, hints of skin and sensual silhouettes for an unexpected edge.
Traditionalists may opt for designs drawn more from a place of nostalgia, while bohemians at heart will embrace the seventies incarnations of cascading silk, best paired with an iconic platform heel.
