Tune: "this is the red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart. We're at the start, the colours disappear, I never watch the stars, there’s so much down here…the shivers move down my shoulder blades in double time" - Lorde, Yellow Flicker Beat (play song in gallery below)
Mood: Fierce, Elegant, Wild, Opulent, Otherworldly,
Palette: Black, Molten Gold, Dusky Pink, Smoke Grey, Chalky White, Tarnished Silver
Decor/Styling: Inspired by the fiercely beautiful, feline-esq muses of Erin Wasson, Kate Moss and Sasha Pivovarova, we're tapping into a mood of animal instinct, of loyalty and intuition, elegantly wild creatures, an untamed rawness suffused with a dark opulence…layers of fur and feathers, mixed with linen and leather, crystal glassware and decadent chandeliers, otherworldly creatures that come out to play in the darkness….
Deep blooms of wild arrangements draw the outside night garden in, evocative of flowers that open after dark, releasing their scent and laid down tables amidst crystal and lavish touches of gold. Raw linens and bone handled cutlery sit under opulent details like mirror balls and chandeliers of cascading crystal, hinting at the wild celebrations to follow.
Moving like shadows in slips of black silk, the bridal party are trimmed with feathered capes and gold jewels of intuitive animals. A flick of liquid liner for feline eyes, wildly styled hair and decadent shoes, fiercely studded, feathered or trimmed with gold serpents. Gentleman in blacktie are finished with rugged (rather than polished) grooming.
