Eye Candy: The “8” Bridal Collection

January 7th, 2014 | Julia Braime

The 8 Bridal Collection by Phase Eight

You all know I’m not afraid to champion a true High Street Honey when I find one, but there are high street success stories and then there’s this brand new “8” Bridal collection by Phase Eight, which has completely knocked my socks off.

When it comes to “the gown” itself, I’m usually resolutely designer all the way.  But, girls, this lady might be for turning.  What do you think Brides Up North, does this stunning new collection make you think about buying (quelle horreur!) off the peg?  I’d love to hear your thoughts. 

And could I get away with the swishy number below at my baby girl’s christening?  No?  Bah.

Phase Eight say:  Our new vintage inspired collection matches exquisite detailing with a contemporary silhouette to offer feminine elegance and delicate charm.

Breathtaking beading and vintage inspired lace designs are expertly fitted with clever inner construction and dreamy tulle skirts for a truly ethereal feel whilst luxurious fabrics, intricate embroidery, floral appliqué and fringing add unique style to each individual shape.

High Street Honey: Phase Eight Wedding Dress Collection 2013

Now you know that I’m a fan of the Great British High Street, particularly for it’s variety, fast fashions and amazing accessory options… but would I recommend buying your actual wedding dress from a high street label?  I’m not sure.  Its a total toss up between affordable, accessible designs and that whole once-in-a-lifetime boutique, bespoke experience.  Honestly?  If you can afford it, I’d generally opt for high end.

.

Then these pictures landed in my inbox. I may well be swayed

.

Coast and Monsoon are excellent at producing beautiful bridal collections that continue to fly off the pegs, and now I think they have found a major contender in Phase Eight, as they launch their stunning wedding collection (for brides and the bridal party) for 2013. 

.

My opinion? Dreamy, daring, sexy and cool.  I’m dying to get down the shops and see how these beauties look in real life.

(any excuse).

Phase Eight say: This season, Phase Eight’s enchanting wedding collection twists romantic, whimsical detailing with a modern silhouette, perfect for every fairytale romance.  Revisit a time when Jackie O and Audrey Hepburn were the style sweethearts of a nation, with vintage inspired full-length wedding dresses in duchesse satin and crepe de chine. Exquisite floral appliqué and pearl beading details adorn the bridal gowns adding a feminine elegance and delicate charm to the clean, fluid silhouettes.

.

Wedding accessories are designed to enhance and complement each look, from satin peep toe shoes and dainty clutch bags to pearl encrusted fascinators and silk corsages. Beautifully coordinating feather boleros in pretty neutrals add the perfect finishing touch to your bridal style.
