Two of my favourite ladies are behind this oh-so-glam and super sexy feature today!
Laura from The Bridal Edit (our partner for all things fashion) & Emma from Heart Full of Tea popped along to an exciting launch party for us at Halfpenny London. We are huge fans of luxury British designer Kate Halfpenny and her incredible designs so when we learnt about her darker side well, the crush just got that little bit deeper…
Notes from The Bridal Edit
Well it’s just so fabulous to be back with you today here on the gorgeous Coco and, if you’re a fan of fashion, I’ve got a not-so-sneaky feeling that you are going to love this feature. Halfpenny London always makes our list of amazing bridal designers so can you even imagine our excitement when we heard about her new occasion wear collection..? Off. The. Scale. Anyway, we pulled ourselves together and headed off to the super glam launch event so here’s all you need to know…
Let’s get straight to it – The Black Edit by Halfpenny London is pretty much your dream collection if bold, beautiful designs are your thing. And, let’s face it, why wouldn’t they be..? You see, Kate Halfpenny is the Queen of creating dresses and separates that manage to be sophisticated with unmissable standout details. If you’ve ever swooned over a Halfpenny London wedding dress, then get ready for The Black Edit.
Kate describes this range as ‘an unashamedly bold collection of exquisite pieces, fusing contemporary styling with a fashion sensibility’ and do you know what..? She’s got it spot on. Dresses and separates in the darkest, deepest black tones you ever did see, all crafted in London. Spectacular just doesn’t come close.
What makes this collection so flipping interesting is that the designs have all come from Kate’s work in bridal. This guarantees you exceptional fit, distinctive silhouettes and fabric combinations that will just make your heart skip a beat. Above everything is a real sense of occasion in these designs. You’re definitely getting the drama that is so often missing with outfits that should work for ‘special’ occasions. These designs are all about the special and just imagine how it will feel to wear one…
We also have to mention those fabric combinations in more detail because err, hello..? Have you seen these images..? The lace bodices could well be our favourite thing ever but then, the butter soft leather and luxe satins… We need to sit down a moment.
Of course, it’s the designs themselves that really steal the show. Let’s just take a minute to appreciate those barely-there backs, big bows, huge heavyweight skirts and the superlight fringing. Just think how you’d feeling arriving at an important event in an outfit from The Black Edit – feels all kinds of good doesn’t it..?
Halfpenny London, you’ve smashed it with The Black Edit so dear readers, if anyone is telling you that anything else is the new black, ignore them because they’re talking nonsense. Black is where it’s at.
