It seems like our beloved fashion designers were feeling a little nostalgic while designing their bridal collections for spring 2017, and couldn’t help but think about the Fifties and the diva-like silhouettes and quirky designs peculiar to those frenetic years. That’s, in fact, the case for both Zac Posen and Alice Temperley, who both enjoyed drawing inspiration from the Old Hollywood glamour. While Posen almost solely focused on mermaid figures, for her Temperley London spring 2017 bridal collection, Alice Temperley opted both for Fifties-inspired silhouettes and delicately ethereal Thirties motifs, intertwining boho-chic touches with some strong, sensual diva vibes.
Femininity is the sole protagonist in Temperley’s latest bridal collection, as Alice Temperley surely focused on feminine ladylike touches and dreamlike patterns. The collection has a strong goddess-like attitude too, since whenever one combines those two decades together, things can’t help but get even more impressive. To be fairly honest, the Temperley London bridal line-up has never missed an opportunity to take our breath away since the very first collection hit the runway in 2002. Temperley Bridal is a sort of romanticized version of Temperley London, which means its designer has always been looking for new ways to celebrate her signature ethereally boho chic style for more than a decade now.
Although consisting of solely 10 different styles, the Temperley London spring 2017 bridal line-up is probably going to become the most unforgettable one, thanks to its intricately embroidered patters, one-of-a-kind structured figures and attention-grabbing appliques, which got tactically positioned to accentuate the curves and balance the figure. Conveying elegance with modern versions of old traditional designs, Alice Temperley combined layered chiffon gowns with high-neck tops, lattice beadwork with traditional sheer chiffon capes, floor-length sinuous gowns with plunging necklines and side cut-outs. Flourishing tassels give dynamicity to most of the creations, while the lace inserts show what actually dreams are made of.
For those who cannot make up their mind whether to choose a floor-length gown or a short, below-the-knee one, Alice brings in a longer and shorter version of the similar structured skirt, with the upper parts of the dresses greatly differing from one another. Whether you prefer mermaid silhouettes or drop-waist boho-chic figures with sophisticated Art Deco designs, going for a Temperley London spring 2017 bridal gown will both help you feel 100% self-confident while walking down the aisle, and fully celebrate your personal tastes especially if you are so in love with Alice Temperley’s seasonal collections.
