All you need is Lahav: Two breathtaking Fall 2016 bridal collections: In the last couple of weeks, we’ve been treated to so many completely beautiful fall 2016 bridal collections, and now Galia Lahav has totally spoiled us by releasing two.
Debuting at the bridal market at New York Public Library a few weeks back, Lahav wowed the press with the launch of the first ready-to-wear collection by the Israel-based designer. The collection, Gala, displays Lahav’s lavish and opulent trademark design, in perhaps a more understated tone. The collection will be available in set sizes, from Galia Lahav stockists – while still somewhat of a well kept secret in the UK, Galia’s designs are available for appointment viewing at Browns in London.
The main event of the NY Public Library launch, however, was the breathtaking fall 2016 Ivory Tower collection. To say Lahav’s designs are ‘statement pieces’ is to say the Eiffel Tower is a telephone pole. Inspired, in Galia’s own words, by gothic architecture and elements of a medieval wardrobe. Architecture is a strong theme for next fall, with lots of structural shaping going in to pieces by several key design houses, and in the Ivory Tower collection this is manifested in sweeping, endless trains, and tight, slick bodices. As well as the striking and classic optic white, the palette of this collection extends to the very on trend blush tones, which work particularly well with the translucent, lingerie element that is proving to be a really strong 2016 trend. With this exciting collection, we are seeing that bridal wear just keeps getting bolder.
We’ve scoured the web to bring you the definitive visual guide to what Galia Lahav is all about, and we don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
