While many brides before have adorned a full skirt, forever inspired by the House of Dior and the artistic eye of Creative Director Raf Simmons we are in love with the new and modern take on the 50’s silhouette which emerged at the recent Fall-Winter Couture Show.
A sculpted full skirt that hits the mid calf - a Dior signature, but this new look which features a drop waist, modern singlet style bodices and exposed skin manages to give an otherwise demure gown a hint of wild-at-heart edge. While still exuding chic refinement we are drawn to the infinitely less traditional mood that is awakened by the gowns. Perfectly modern, yet effortlessly old world it is suited to a bride that loves to beautifully blend the old with the new. We see it at a garden style wedding with an effortless French Chic aesthetic where long timber tables are dressed with black and white striped runners, white bentwood chairs and opulent oversized floral arrangements of antique pink roses spilling from large crystal vases.
The trend is not one for embellishment or overly busy fabrics,the sumptuous luxe materials and the voluptuous forms enough of a statement on their own. Less is definitely more when styling this silhouette. We are drawn to stark whites paired with silvers. A cluster of arm bangles or ears adorned with multiple diamond studs will add an effortless edge. Classic pumps and windswept hair left out completing the look.
