THURSDAY THREADS – BELLE & BUNTY

Thursday December 8 2011.

Bijou brides let me introduce you to “the purveyors of all things gorgeously floaty and silky” (according to Grazia Magazine) Belle & Bunty.  The cult label loved by everyone from Fearne Cotton to Lindsay Lohan, Belle & Bunty have recently branched out into Bridal wear and I know you’re going to like what you see.  The Belle & Bunty collection even includes the Alice and Hannah’s own wedding dress designs, called what else but The Belle and The Bunty.

The bridal collection is a natural progression for designers Alice Shreeve and Hannah Coniam-Thompson who met at the London College of Fashion  and established their brand which celebrates the feminine shape with elegant designs in 2003.

A Bijou edit of my favourites from the Belle & Bunty Bridal collection are below.

The Lace Willow

The tailored bodice, pointed details and waist sash on this gown will cut a very feminine silhouette.  Plus the lace key hole back is a beautiful feature for romantically styled brides.

The Steeple 

A perfect destination wedding dress with its cut-out back and fluid silk crepe fabric to keep you cool.  The ruffle details around the arm add a contemporary edge.

The Rubies

Interesting twisted rope neckline and long train make this vintage feel gown less traditional.

The Petal

Modest yet contemporary at the front with understated lines yet with a sexy scooped back, the Petal wedding dress is sure to wow.

My Bijou style board for Belle & Bunty wearing brides.  I’ve used the silk rosette details to inspire the accessory shapes and rose red accent colour.
