NKOTWB – MATTHEW WILLIAMSON

Thursday June 2 2011.

This week’s Threads feature is on Matthew Williamson’s foray into bridal wear with a capsule collection of 15 delectable dresses priced from a reasonable £1500.  I must say the Matthew Williamson store experience is pretty special for brides to be and the dresses are stunning in their intricacy (if you can’t make it to London, some of the dresses are also available online from Net-a-Porter).  There is also a very well considered accessories range with great multi-wear items such as jewelled ribbons which could be worn on the wrist, head or waist by bride or bridesmaids.

My Bijou favourites and what I consider the most stylish statement pieces from Matthew Williamson’s stunning wedding dress collection are…

ASYMMETRIC SILK TULLE GOWN EMBELLISHED WITH FEATHERS

{An angelic bridal look with the delicate drop feathers and tulle overlay}

   

PARACHUTE DRAPED SILK DRESS EMBELLISHED WITH SWAROVSKI CRYSTAL STRAP & BELT

{The most fashion forward dress in the collection, I adore the innovative parachute train which is just crying out for a wind machine!}

DRAPED DEVORE ASYMMETRIC COCKTAIL DRESS WITH JEWELLED CRYSTAL CORSAGE

{Short and sweet this wedding dress would be perfect city chic Bijou brides} 

    

 SILK CHIFFON GOWN WITH SOFT PLEATING AT BODICE & SWAROVSKI CRYSTAL ASYMMETRIC STRAPS

{A grecian wonder to channel your Kylie Minogue Aphrodite alter ego}

Bijou brides to get the Matthew Williamson classic bohemian look choose bejewelled accessories such as crystal hair bands or oversized earrings and flat sandals are a must for elegant walks on the sand.  Diane Kruger in Troy personified grecian chic with curled hair and sunkissed skin – covet with a spritz of Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray and a swipe of bronzer on cheeks, shoulders and breastbone.
