Mixing layers of whimsy with an ethereal nostalgia we're inspired by the feminine mystique of an embroidered veil, paired classically with a trailing gown (think Kate Moss in custom Galliano) or given new context, worn with the unexpected edge of a cocktail length dress.
Floating motifs of lace appliqued onto swathes of tulle or cascading flowers dreamily trailing the length of a cathedral veil, these designs enchant and exude an ethereal lightness, not necessarily offered by their accompanying gown. We love the idea of pairing an elaborately embellished floor skimming veil with the sleek silhouette of a simple silk slip, later removed for reception revelry.
Similarly, Julien MacDonald's Spring 2015 collection has us re-imagining ornately embroidered sheer length veils, paired with tiered lace dresses finishing above the knee, perfect for a chic and contemporary take on modern bridal dressing (with shorter hemlines also offering the perfect excuse to invest in a pair of once in a lifetime statement shoes!).
