Today we are being ‘wowed’ by the latest Palm Springs Fall Collection by L’eto Bridal. If you’re a bride that loves an ethereal, aloof, laidback and truly romantic gown, then this collection could just be for you! The ensemble of gowns, created by Aussie designer Anya Ostapenko, tells the story of a female escapist in the hazy Sonoran Desert, Palm Springs. With burnt orange, dusty sunsets and a dramatic mountain range backdrop, these gowns twist and float in the warm dessert breeze, showcasing the sheer and exquisite range of textures and materials so beautifully.
So romantic, so lightweight and so fluid, theses gowns are masterfully designed and seriously stunning. We just love the flamboyant sleeves, the button detailing against the sleek satin and the elegant silhouettes created by the voluminous chiffon and gown detailing. Anya has successfully linked the inspiration of a heady Palm Springs era from long ago with a new contemporary vision to create outstanding designs for the sun-kissed bohemian bride of today.
Hope you adore this collection like we do!
Get ready to gaze….
This shoot is full of cinematic style and iconic memoirs from Palm Springs’ glamorous heyday. The collaborators chose the perfect backdrop for L’eto’s second collection of Fall 2018. Faded colours, serene landscapes….this shoot is just gorgeous.
Long sleeves and draped hems are just right for an autumn/winter wedding. The simplicity of the plain, full-bodied dresses creates an understated vibe….
Blouses are cropped at midriff and offer a refreshing take on the pastoral combination of high collars and long skirts that caress exposed skin with a barely-there touch. Each duo is birthed into a sophisticated and quietly cool bridal outfit that seamlessly integrates into each bride’s existing lifestyle. Post-ceremony blues don’t exist on this season’s pieces only because there’s the possibility of wearing it again and again, in any way they like.
Wisps of blouson sleeves, organic pleats and the choice of lustrous silk gracefully takes over from traditional and heavy-fabric gowns. Fine fabrics and softly crafted gowns are more L’eto’s style in this collection.
Bridal separates have been on trend for some time, but they really are the key this season. A delicate and beautifully made two piece will most definitely have high impact on your wedding day.
Strips and gentle panels of silk satin feature in some of these designs. If you’re hoping for something a little different and authentic for your own wedding, this design might appeal….
Unfussy and elegant, these gowns are an effortless way to showcase the L’eto bride as a self-assured, independent woman. The fabrics are so subtle and fluid, which really makes way for the female figure to really own the gown. I am loving the soft volumes of the sleeves, the flowing skirts and the trailing sashes.
Detailed and pretty embroidery is also key in this collection. The delicate gold leaf pattern on the sheer, whimsical and romantically draped dress (the last images to feature below) is truly exquisite.
So stunning, but also so seventies, I just love all the billowing sleeves and flowing drapes!
If this collection has inspired you, then why not contact L’eto Bridal directly or find out when their next trunkshow is. Fingers crossed they come and share the love over in the UK soon!
