We loved Carol Hannah’s Spring 2013 bridal offering for its light and romantic designs but today’s collection is a little different. Actually, make that a lot different.
There’s a darker, edgier quality to Carol Hannah’s latest bridal collection, Arcana. Structured folds and architectural seaming abound. Texture is achieved with nary a lace in sight. These are gowns adorned with details that invite you to take a closer look: organic-looking detailing created with metal chains; hand-cut motifs made to resemble blots of ink.
“Inspired by the Rorschach inkblot test, the Carol Hannah Spring 2014 collection is a study in symmetry, geometry, and moody undertones. Featuring mirrored embellishment and angular seaming, nontraditional textiles like lambskin leather and metal bring us full circle to challenge the way we see things.”
We see a seductively avant-garde collection of elegantly striking gowns for the fashion forward bride. What do you see? Above and below, de Marseille fit and flare gown featuring lambskin leather “blots”.
This gown features a keyhole back.
La Lune seamed silk wool mikado gown with leather, beading and draped chiffon skirt.
Fortuna tulle and faille fit and flare gown with horsehair train.
Alliette lambskin leather and faille seamed bustier.
La Reine faille fit and flare skirt with seaming and dramatic, draped train.
