NY Bridal Fashion Week Recap: Part II
This Monday continues our rundown of New York Bridal Fashion Week. With last week's recap of a few of our favorite shows, we'll give you several more sneak peeks at the lated Spring collections that stole our hearts in the Big Apple. For next season, you can expect every bit as much color. Rosy pinks and dusty blushes are here to stay, alongside unexpected pastels like daffodil yellow and powder blue. So feast your eyes on some additional favorites for Spring '14… And look out for our official trend report tomorrow!
Between a punk princess presentation overlooking the High Line at the ever-popular Standard Hotel featuring teased tresses casually tied up with silver satin ribbon and ballgowns paired haphazaardly with leather moto jackets to a juxtaposing parade of regal gowns in the adjacent floor-to-ceiling glass window room, Ines DiSanto did no wrong with her Spring collection. Embellishments dominated, from hefty gemstones to flower-esque knotted tulle appliqué. To say it ran the gamut in style would be a definite understatement. Ines DiSanto's collection was nonetheless stunning and equally dramatic.
The Watters collections most definitely did not disappoint. Sheer backs with icicle-like beading overtop and statement headpieces made for a hauntingly beautiful run of show. The simpler silhouettes were topped with crowns of leaves for enchanting ensembles reminiscent of a Midsummer Night's Dream. A whimsical pink confection with an impeccable bustier bodice paired with an over-the-top floral and netted headdress had us all head over heels.
Stark sparkling whites, pretty laser-cut peplums, delicate bows and body-hugging satin numbers made for an Old Hollywood-inspired collection in the Romona Keveza Spring '14 show. Demure yet sweet seems perfectly befitting to descrie her bevy of bridal confections. A particularly memorable gown boasted slinky champagne-hued silk with thick bright white appliqué strategically placed down the front. Unexpected yet easily made classic, this collection was a foolproof crowd pleaser.
