Every month we will be sharing an article, as our ‘Something Borrowed’ that we think our brides would enjoy reading.
This month we wanted to share one of our favourite go-to companies for inspiration, The Lane.
— Bridal Fashion Trends
With broderie anglaise building across Ready to Wear collections for several Spring seasons now, offering a relaxed and beautiful alternative to a traditional gown, we’re loving the spill over of other, more dramatic cotton laces appearing across bridal and Spring collections, so perfect for Summer ceremonies.
Less traditional than a simple repeating floral motif (although there are fresh and stunning examples of those too), we’re particularly inspired by the contemporary femininity found in a new wave of geometric laces, laser cut motifs and mirrored placements.
Almost as if the luxuriously heavy hand of guipure lace were re-engineered into new patterns and repeats, these artful designs mix sections of open mesh with oversized florals and lend perfectly to entirely engineered dresses, a symmetrical mirror image of lace from neck to toe, for a statement of bold, dramatic femininity.
This look also translates particularly beautifully to short gowns, offering a chic and relaxed alternative for non traditional brides, or summer destination weddings – not to mention the perfect excuse to invest in an exquisite lace dress you are likely to wear again!
