Cancello the Beautiful New Collection of Bridal Shoes & Accessories from Emmy London
I have been longing to share this post with you for quite some time! Ever since October in fact, which was when I first caught a glimpse of the glamour I am about to unveil. For whilst each and every one of the past collections of bridal shoes from Emmy London have been equally exquisite, her latest offering is my favourite yet…..
I first discovered the heavenly heels of designer Emmy Scarterfield, the lovely lady behind the Emmy London brand, after my NYE wedding in 2010 – I would have most certainly been an Emmy bride if only I had found them before! And she very quickly became a firm favourite of mine and yours (her shoes are consistently some of your favourite pins on Pinterest). With her inimitable design style and exquisite embellishments, Emmy’s bridal shoes and indeed her whole collections, have a way of perfectly combining the glamour of eras past, with the sophistication and, most importantly, comfort we modern brides demand.
The Cancello collection, her offering for brides in 2016, is a celebration of geometric repetition, inspired by the intricate detailing Emmy noticed in old Italian wrought iron gates, and the foliage so often interwoven in them, on a recent trip to the country. As well as the soft Italian leathers and decadent hand beading, in Swarovski crystals and delicate mother of pearl shells, that we have come to love and expect from this celebrated brand; the new designs in Cancello also feature exciting contemporary design details, that give a new dimension to the collection and a modern twist to its unmistakably vintage feel. Design details such as lattice straps, as well as a super high mule, ivory Pom Pom boot and elegant wedge-heels – which are perfect if you’re not accustomed to walking in heels but are still looking for a little extra elevation for the big day.
But don’t despair if you love Emmy’s delicate embellishments yet can’t imagine spending 12 hours in 3 inch heels, because she has also added to the elegant range of flats she introduced into her collection at the start of 2015 (take a peek here if you missed it)…..
Emmy London’s feminine, perfectly crafted and magnificent bridal heels are unmistakable….. and pure luxury! Timelessly beautiful they would look as graceful and stylish in 50 years time as they do today. In fact, it isn’t hard to imagine them being lovingly wrapped in tissue paper and passed down to future generations.
But the collection doesn’t stop there. Cancello also includes some beautiful new hair accessories! A selection of vines, combs and headbands all with the same detailed beading and details we have come to expect and adore from Emmy’s designs, they would make the most perfect partners to the beautiful shoes. Here are a few of my very favourites…..
Such a stunning collection, the lovely Celestina have gone straight to the top of my shoe lust list! How about you, do you have a favourite design or piece? You can see more of Cancello (oh yes there is more, these are just my favourites!) alongside Emmy’s other designs on her website at www.emmylondon.com and all pieces will be available from January 2016. If you love Emmy London as much as I do, be sure to stay up to date on all the latest news by following along on Facebook , Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.
