Blending a kind of European insouciance, a playful mix of relaxed elegance and ethereal fabrics, we're channeling a mood of bridal separates for stunningly non-traditional Summer ceremonies. Adopting a Parisian restraint and revealing only the slightest suggestion of skin, think a sliver of midriff or a sensual hint of back, the sheerness of lace offset with more demure details, this new wave of wedding separates offers a unique bohemian femininity (and a decidedly more grown up take than earlier incarnations, exposing entire torsos!).
Hinting at an heirloom sensibility, mixing delicate combinations of french lace and embroidery with voluminous silky skirts, loose chemises and sheer overlays, this aesthetic, although underpinned with a mood of nostalgia is rescued from vintage modesty by the most sensual, relaxed silhouettes. Chemises that move like lingerie, blouses that split to reveal glimpses of back, subtly cropped lace tops and sheer skirts, only partially lined.
Cut in a relaxed shapes, these pieces exude an uncomplicated effortlessness, beautifully breezy separates that layer to unique effect offering the antithesis to anything tight or structured (unsuited to a sandy setting). Entirely appropriate for a beach ceremony or relaxed reception, (for brides who dream more of an intimate party than a full scale production) channel an easy elegance and summery spirit, paired with delicate sandals and salt swept hair.
