Lost in the enchanting darkness to emerge from Spring 2016 Ready to Wear runways, collections scattered with mystical dresses in billowing silks and the sheerest of lace, these sensual silhouettes offer an unexpected take on bridal party styling, particularly perfect for those who prefer not to match.
Against a blank canvas of entirely black, the texture and detailing of gowns are highlighted to spectacular effect, brought to life through seductive cut outs, silk anglaise, delicate lace insertions and decadent all-over beading. Opt for an assortment of silhouettes, perfectly selected for each wearer…a coven of beautifully cohesive, effortlessly styled women.
Consider adopting a mood of mysticism through gently layered jewels (look to Alexander McQueen), or a tribe of ethereal Nomads (Alberta Ferretti and Valentino inspired). For a more glamorous approach draw cues from Elie Saab and Herve Leger, a seventies take on sensuality, both sleek and billowing in silhouette. One constant underpinned every collection though…super fresh make up, essential for offsetting black in the Spring and Summer months.
