British label Needle & Thread is world-famous for their beautifully adorned, stunningly sparkly and dreamy occasion wear influenced by vintage fashion, but their most recent addition is a wonderful bridal range that will melt your heart. Wedding dresses featuring delicate embroideries, shimmery embellishments and contemporary colours. They feel very modern yet they evoke the romance of bygone eras with Victorian-inspired silhouettes, flared sleeves and skirts influenced by the 1970’s and floral motifs that reminiscence Edwardian couture.
Needle & Thread's autumn/winter 2017 bridal collection draws inspiration from the works of Danish painter P. S. Kroyer and his wife Marie. The colour palette was borrowed from his paintings which were created in the second half of the 19th century and include sultry shades of grey, champagne and dusty pink. At the same time, the silhouettes are feminine with cinched waists and A-line skirts, but also aristocratic with high necks and long sleeves. The collection oozes that undeniable effortless feel which is a distinct characteristic of contemporary fashion.
Elements that make these wedding gowns just so appealing include sophisticated layers of lace and tulle, intricate but very tasteful embellishments and incredibly flattering shapes. On the other hand, ruffled tulle trimmings, scalloped edges and sparkly florals accentuated with sequins are adding the element of playfulness to the collection. It is comfort and style combined into one with just a subtle hint of sex appeal encapsulated in details such as keyhole backs, plunging V-necks and sheer bodices.
Embellished veils are the perfect finishing touch and you really don’t need eye-catching accessories to create drama. Hair and make-up look to match? Go for a styling that is simple, natural and care-free. Minimalistic make-up which only emphasises your natural beauty and loose, lightly curled hair is a gorgeous effortless bride look that complements the dresses, but if you want something just a little sophisticated then you can also wear a simple up-do and red lip.
