Halfpenny London always makes our list of amazing bridal designers, so can you imagine our excitement when we heard about her new occasion wear collection? Off the scale. 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 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 sophisticated dresses and separates with unmissable standout details. If you’ve ever swooned over a Halfpenny London wedding dress, prepare 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 have ever seen, 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 exceptional fit, distinctive silhouettes and fabric combinations that will make your heart skip a beat. Above everything is a real sense of occasion in these designs. You’re getting the drama often missing with outfits that should work for ‘special’ occasions. These designs are all about the special, and imagine how it will feel to wear one…
We must also mention those fabric combinations in more detail because, err, hello? Have you seen these images..? The lace bodices could be our favourite thing, but then, the butter-soft leather and luxe satins… We need to sit down for a moment.
Of course, it’s the designs themselves that steal the show. Let’s take a minute to appreciate those barely-there backs, big bows, huge heavyweight skirts and the superlight fringing. Just think how you’d feel arriving at an essential event in an outfit from The Black Edit – it feels all kinds of good.
Halfpenny London, you’ve smashed it with The Black Edit, so dear readers, if anyone tells you anything else is the new black, ignore them because they’re talking nonsense. Black is where it’s at.
