Gosh I don’t know about you, but we’ve most certainly been feeling under the weather the last week or so! There’s a rather nasty autumnal bug lurking and it has well and truly caught us out. But we’re slowly on the mend and to ease back into the blogging lark, we thought we’d give you a visual treat in the form of pretty, feminine and effortlessly cool wedding gowns by Belle & Bunty.
If you’re not already following Belle & Bunty on Instagram (where’ve you been please…?) then you simply must, the girls behind B&B, a.k.a Alice & Hannah, are beyond inspirational. Having visited their gorgeous London boutique earlier this year I was blown away by their designs; simplistic in nature yet seriously skilful in their silky construction.
So, I’m really happy to be sharing their new 2016 collection – A Piece of My Heart.
Notes on Belle & Bunty
Belle & Bunty:
Award winning cult London based womenswear and bridal label Belle & Bunty has announced the launch of its latest bridal collection – A Piece of My Heart.
Drawing upon Belle & Bunty’s signature look of effortlessly feminine gowns, the new collection has been infused with a retro vibe through discreet nods to the 1960’s and 70’s. Combining clean fluid lines and clouds of silk, the collection encapsulates the aesthetic of a free spirited bride that is carefree and bohemian in feel yet still retains an air of confidence, romance and a mischievous charm that has become synonymous with the label.
The collection offers a range of feminine dresses that are skilfully designed to skim the body with smooth flattering lines. Decadent and elegant, the collection is a true joy to wear created with a modern, confident, fashion aware and cool bride in mind.
Taking inspiration from a mixture of 1960’s and 70’s musical genres covering rock, pop, folk and disco, as well as key supermodels of the time, the pieces of the collection are named after iconic figures from the era, each of which shares a chic sense of style and carefree attitude. Styles include; The Joni, with it’s silk embroidered bodice, bell sleeves and elegant column skirt making this style the perfect mix of glamour with a bohemian free spirited edge. The clean lines of The Dusty with its straight sleeve and high beaded neckline make this the perfect fusion of modern refinement meets retro touches. Whilst The Stevie oozes sensuality with it’s silk satin fabric, dropped waist and full butterfly sleeves which flutter around you as you walk – a nod to the 1970’s in a laid back luxurious way.
In keeping with the fluidity of the collection and Belle & Bunty’s free thinking bride, A Piece of My Heart incorporates a number of separate pieces offering brides a greater range of choice than ever before. Recognising that the typical Belle & Bunty bride is confident and sure of their own sense of style – keen to create a unique bridal look that is firmly in keeping with their everyday aesthetic, Hannah and Alice have designed a range of complimentary pieces within the collection that can be cleverly paired for a truly unique look. From billowing silk skirts to delicate cami’s and scalloped edge lace tops, brides can choose a combination that works for them, a number of the pieces in the collection are also available with or without sleeves so brides can choose their preference allowing maximum control over their finished look.
All dresses are proudly made in the UK using the finest lace and silk fabrics. The new collection starts from £1,450 and is available now from the flagship Belle & Bunty boutique in London and at a select number of stockists across the UK and internationally.
