For 2017, Charlie Brear – the eponymous British label – presents a fashion-led bridal collection inspired by a modern-take on cocktail wear. Designed and made in the UK, luxe fluid fabrics and relaxed silhouettes create a carefree mood that’s indicative of the brand’s fresh and contemporary approach to bridalwear.
Off-the-shoulder sleeves, front-split skirts, low sexy backs and cut-outs give the collection a directional feel, whilst clever design details such as uneven pleating and draping and modern bonded seams add interest. Co-ords – a Charlie Brear signature – continue to play a pivotal role. In addition to traditional sandwashed silks, crepe de chine silks and fine grain satins; new innovative fabrics include body form stretch lace and crepe, and architectural lace. Prices range from £1,200 – £2,800.
