New York's Bridal Week was a just a few week's ago and we are happy to report that all the featured bridal collections for Spring 2015 were fabulous! The Pure Luxe Bride girls love what we see and can't wait to see some of these couture items on our brides in the upcoming seasons. Take a look below and get ready for the unexpected!
Modesty is appearing more and more in bridal fashion, without being stiff and hot. The trick to the sleeve look is just the right amount of coverage. Shown left is Monique l'Hullier with lattice, open lace embroidery with Carolina Herrera middle left, and a coral-inspired organic look with Vera Wang on the far right. For brides looking for something a bit more delicate, Oscar de la Renta used long tulle shoulders in the middle right - this favors a faux-sleeve look without actually wearing one.
Jenny Packham, de la Renta and Reem Acra are featured here from left to right. Bias-cut silks and satins, body-slimming silhouettes and capped sleeves are in full swing with these 1930's styled gowns. We also see a lot of art-deco embroidery and jewels.
No stiff or traditional shapes here; only whispy layers of tulle and transparent fabrics! Carolina Herrera and Vera Wang are pictured above with bustles of lace and tulle. These gowns appear as if they are made out of air, as the bride floats down the runway.
Personally, we love veils! They add a timeless piece of both tradition and fashion to a gown and complete the bride's entire look. Veils appear to be back in style and I'm thrilled! Naeem Khan's silver-edged veil (middle) and de la Renta's embroidered fringe pieces (left and right) are what's in! These veils are entirely head-covering, and fall at least to brides' waists.
Hippie 1970's Style
Simple, flowy and fuss-free - these are the looks of the 1970's. Barefoot and carefree, high necklines and messy hair have emerged on the runway as an upcoming trend. De la Renta, shown left, is simple with cap sleeves, Khan's middle gown long-sleeved and Wang's, shown right, just fits in.
Shades of Grey (ironically...)
Out with the color, and in with the grey and silvers! Gleam and glam is what's trending now. Jenny Packham's unique and detailed beading brings out the grey in her line (center). Khan has gone all out with her embossed and embroidered silver gown (left), while Acra went for a more subtle approach with a light grey background to her lace gown (right).
