FASHION // L'eto Bridal 19 Collection
L’eto Bridal continues the story of an escapist this season in Palm Springs, the heady Sonoran Desert town. As sun-baked colours of Salvation mountain and the dramatic mountain range make a wonderfully nostalgic backdrop of the mid-century heyday of the place, Anya Ostapenko delivers a collection of bridal separates with offerings of sensual fitted gowns and an ethereal sheer cape interspersed between. Masterfully executed motifs of metallic leaves follow through from her first Seascape collection and pleats in dramatic silhouettes are introduced this time around.
Strips and gentle panels of silk satin are a breezy reminder of a youthful desire to tap into the ghostly but glamorous memories of the retreat town in its star-studded peak. The urge to reach out and immerse oneself into the experience of a world lived off screen is strong.
Unfussy and elegant, these gowns are an effortless way to showcase the L’eto Bridal bride as a woman of her own standing. The subtle fluidity of the pieces is exhibited in soft volumes of sleeves, flowing skirts, and trailing sashes.
Catch the light on your skin as it streams through soft, delicate silk chiffon on Piece 15. Branches down the entire length of the gown add a lavish touch with a distinct feeling of elegance in its subtle metallic shine. This flowing piece seduces with its silky drape and multi-faceted depth of its embroidered patterns of leaves while a mild balloon sleeve presents a light and feminine air with its soft volume. The pure lightness of Piece 15 is for the brides looking for all the ethereality and fantasy without the weight.
Twists & drapes fit organically around the body, & here we make use of its soft appeal in a contemporary bridal set. Featuring a cropped poet-sleeve blouse & a high waist, floor-sweeping skirt, this duo is another of our stylized post-ceremony designs. Made with the intent of combining the possibility of repeated wears that seamlessly integrate into your existing lifestyle & a glamorous, sensual outfit, Piece 19 is a cool, charming design for the contemporary bride looking for an unfussy, yet unique two-piece set for her nuptials.
Whispers of layers are approached in tie-it-yourself details and strips of silk add a bohemian touch to this panelled gown. Tapping into a light and feminine mood, the sweeping maxi skirt and bow-top combo is easily refreshed as separates in your post- wedding days.
There’s a sense of youthfulness in Piece 13 that matches the bride it’s looking for- carefree, and languid.
Beads scatter like stars on the morning glow of this translucent poet sleeved blouse. Its draped, balloon sleeves capture a timelessly romantic mood. Wear it over one of our fitted gowns (Piece 17/Piece 16) or pair it with this gradient pleated tier skirt as you change outfits during the day. Whispered layers of shell-like pleats offer a refined appeal and subverts the traditional full, layered trains of bridal gowns of yesteryear.
Reminiscent of a hallowed, devotional figure dressed in ivory silk, fluid pleats flow into angel wing sleeves in this uniquely impactful gown. Piece 20 is dramatic, opulent, and still taps into a wonderfully organic sense that we’ve been chasing. Crisp fabric pressed neatly into elegant pleats are the stunning detail that captures the eye immediately. Not quite floor-length, the skirt balances modernity and femininity with ease, and let the gentle volume of the gown envelop you like a loving caress as you walk down the aisle.
Poet sleeves are gathered into soft pleats and set into translucent cuffs on this retro inspired bridal cape. Delicate beads scatter around the neckline for a touch of glamour, catching the light as the wearer moves along the aisle. Its floor-sweeping length delivers an ethereal and fluid feel while barely-there chiffon offers a whimsical quality of the 50’s in the present day. This piece is highly customisable for your tastes. Take this layering cape to the next level with embroidery and bespoke beading or edit the length to your liking.
Ubiquitous satin imbues a romantic sensibility to this otherwise clean and modern gown. It’s softly tailored into an effortless long sleeve that separates into ties that can be worn knotted or loose; a feature that emphasises fluidity throughout the design. This gown abandons the rules of traditional femininity in its gracefully slick silhouette and offers only the feeling of freedom in its softly brushed material for both girlish and androgynous brides alike.
Soft cups of silk are delicately fitted into an empire waist and the slip-like gown cascades into a luxurious floor-length stream. For a free-spirited nymph of music and love, this piece is perfect on its own and versatile with others. The ivory silk has a natural lustre and soft hand feel that skims like water over your silhouette, while barely-there straps combine a clean and cool vibe. It’s a fuss-free piece emboldened only by its perfect cut and fluid fabric, made for the subtle and independent soul.
