About Albus Lumen
Introducing, ALBUS LUMEN, the Latin translation of ‘white light’. White Light represents positivity, lightness and freedom and is a name that represents the core aesthetic of ALBUS LUMEN.
The ALBUS LUMEN aesthetic is confidence in simplicity, it is not weighed down by trends, but grounded in the core elements and drawing strength from detailed minimalism. With a nod to the European summer, craftsmanship and relaxed style inform the ALBUS LUMEN aesthetic.
Simple shapes and classic modernity create subtle yet striking contrasts - beautifully light, quietly confident, powerfully feminine.
ALBUS LUMEN’s manifesto is simple: effortless dressing, with modernist clothes made from the finest natural fabrics and crafted with a conscience.
Behind The Brand
Describe the woman you design for…
The Albus Lumen bride is someone who appreciates simplicity and is after an effortless, timeless and sophisticated look. It’s a perfect extension to our main collection but in a more luxurious way. Think ethereal, dreamy and light. It’s modern, sophisticated with a touch of art deco. Inspired by the beautiful architecture of Paris and the art of Auguste René Rodin, which has a lot of magic and ethereal love in his work.
What is your most popular piece?
Our collection was only launched this year at the end of January for MATCHESFASHION exclusively. We have created a small capsule which in my opinion, has options for every modern bride. We have a silk pant and short suit option, and four styles of dresses and gowns. All dresses have long silhouettes and each is a unique design. One of the dresses is made with a triple layer of silk crinkle in cream and off-white to create a beautiful lightness and dreaminess. Another style has a long sleeve and beautiful twist detail on the waist. All the pieces are made from 100% silk satin and silk crinkle.
What advice would you give to brides-to-be?
Stay true to yourself and your aesthetic. This can only be enhanced more on your special day by choosing the right style and shape.
As a designer, what tips do you have for brides to get the most out of their fittings?
Our garments are designed with simplicity and with a minimal approach, so the main thing for us is to make sure the bride fits the garment and feels special in it.
Do you offer a custom design service for brides? If so, how long does it take to make a custom piece?
Not at this stage.
What advice do you give to brides to care for their gown?
We design dresses that have longevity and are something that the bride can wear again for another special occasion. So the only advice we give is to keep the piece in good care and use special drycleaning services.
Why we love it…
Sophisticated, relaxed and refreshing silhouettes in luxe fabrications. From day one we’ve been enamored with Albus Lumen’s inimitable aesthetic.
For the bride…
For the fashion-forward bride with a modern and minimal approach to style. For brides who appreciate distinctive, thoughtful design and quality craftsmanship.
Pared-back, chic minimalism is the ethos behind Albus Lumen, so stay true to this and keep accessories sleek and simple to complement their pieces.
