No wedding night is complete without a little lingerie, but it’s usually saved for after the reception. Alice Temperley London seven-piece Spring 2019 bridal collection turned that idea on its head, bringing the sex appeal of the boudoir into the gown itself. Working in color, embroideries, and bustier details, the lineup redefined what we think of as traditional “bridalwear.”
Taking a page from her ready-to-wear collection, Temperley revisited her embroidered Toledo dress in two looks: One gown came in a pure white motif, while the other had splashes of blue and orange. Similarly, a gown with a transparent bodice inlaid with sequins came in both ivory and blush, to give .brides options. As always, every Temperley creation could be dressed up with a corresponding veil or crystal-laden hair accessory.
As her label expands into regions where a “white wedding” isn’t necessarily the norm, Temperley is keeping up with the times. But the use of color wasn’t just a smart business decision; her best looks were the ones in that fresh, expanded spring palette
