The New Bridal Capsule Collection for 2014 from Belle & Bunty

Who could forget Belle & Bunty‘s 2013 collection, with its feminine, flirty and flattering designs of sumptuous silk and satin (so reminiscent of that Atonement dress) Well, as jaw-droppingly gorgeous as it was, I do believe it has nothing on their 2014 bridal capsule collection!

The New Bridal Capsule Collection for 2014 from Belle & Bunty

The Belle & Bunty brand has long been synonymous with understated elegance, and in 2010 they brought this aesthetic into the bridal world, combining: glamour, modernity and romance for brides that want a unique, luxurious wedding dress with a vintage inspired feel. Belle & Bunty bridal collections are always infused with pure glamour, inspired by the best of bygone eras, such as the 1930s and 1940s, whilst continuing the brands modern and unique take on ‘vintage’.

This their latest collection is a little more exotic, alluring and sensual; inspired by the early 1900′s and the exotic Dutch dancer, turned spy, Mata Hari, with her carefree, dark provocative style. Mata Hari was a free-spirited bohemian seductress, who was the first woman in the 20th century to achieve “celebrity” status. Known for her love of jewels, ornamental armwear and headpieces, her style exuded opulence and luxury; and subtle elements of this have been woven into the new collection in true Belle & Bunty style, with jewels and textures of delicate laces layered on top of delicious fluid silk satins, chiffons and morocains.

The more structured Maple, which I can so imagine Joan Crawford wearing, has strong clean lines with a plunging V back, offset with a dark antique crystal belt for a true mix of modern and vintage.

The blush silk satin underskirt of The Ophelia allows the beautiful ivory lace to do the talking in this dropped waist style with godet inserts, key to the Belle & Bunty collections.
