In the bridal world, it can be said we will always have a soft spot for traditional styles – be it lace, vintage fabrics and A-line skirts. Although these styles are our timeless classics, 2018 is screaming for something different, and we have it right here…let me introduce you to ‘Emily’- our modern two-piece from our sister collection Oscar Lili. Ooooohhhh.
Before I indulge into detail about Emily, I want to briefly touch upon the creation of Oscar Lili. Over the years, we always had the pleasure to welcome a wide variety of brides, who are in the hunt for different styles of dresses. As we create our own made to measure collection, we thought it was time to start designing gowns geared towards those brides who were in the look out for a more modern, quirky look whilst still remaining bridal. We wanted to go beyond just having dresses, and following more conventional trends, this inspired the beginning of Oscar Lili- a new world of capes, trousers, skirts and of course two pieces!
‘Emily’ is not just a perfect skirt and top combination, it manages to create a feminine, bridal feel whilst being laid-back and fun. Sounds pretty perfect to me. The front of the top is created using a luxurious silk satin fabric, which has built-in cups keeping you feeling secure and comfortable all day long. This plainer material provides a stark contrast to the lace beaded sleeves and back, yet the lace edging detail around the neckline ties the look in together. The delicate jewelled embroidery offers a more contemporary lace, as well as keeping you shimmering and gleaming under the light. As the sleeves are loose fitting they will not provide any restrictions or discomfort, this especially crucial for those of you who want to dance the night away! The open diamond shaped back which is tied together with a bow can be said to be the cherry on top of the cake- adding a sensual, sophisticated touch.
Flowing together with the front of the top, the bias cut skirt enhances your silhouette perfectly, skimming round your body, providing a very flattering shape. If Emily has not yet won you over, the quality and feel of the silk satin skirt will do the trick. We are true believers that to look amazing, one has to feel it, therefore we only work with the finest, most comfortable fabrics.
As with all our custom-made gowns, you can add your own personal touches through our selection of accessories, headpieces and veils. Whatever stage you are at in your bridal journey, come and try on our two-piece collection, we promise you won’t be disappointed…
