Much-loved global luxury bridal couture house Galia Lahav has released their highly anticipated second bridal prêt-a-porter collection- 'Lumière'. This capsule collection is a stylishly refined extension of the fashion house's debut prêt-a-porter collection launched earlier this year. Galia Lahav's bridal expansion into prêt-a-porter is a direct creative response to the change in wedding styles during a global pandemic and the ever-evolving needs of the modern bride.
Galia Lahav's prêt-a-porter collection explores beyond just the wedding day to include modern bridal pieces for everything from engagement parties to bridal showers to rehearsal dinners to even the honeymoon and beyond. Created by skilled London and Italian ateliers, this bridal collection is crafted to become wearable keepsake pieces that harmonise with the modern bride's wardrobe for not only their wedding day but long after the "I do"s.
This new ready-to-wear bridal collection, 'Lumière', features a mixture of menswear-inspired tuxedo suits, sleek feminine dresses, bodysuits, and separates that can be mixed and matched to the bride's needs. Like the debut collection, 'Lumière' continues to celebrate the many sides of modern empowered and confidently sexy brides through skillfully crafted design features. This collection comprises clean-cut contemporary tailoring with exquisitely skilled drapery, which gently skims and wraps the body. Inspired by the pallets of a summer evening's sky, this collection is created based on ivory, blush, silver and gold and made with soft crêpes, flowing silks, show-stopping lamé, lace and eye-catching sequins.
At Eternal Bridal, we are excited to announce a selection of 'Lumière' ready-to-wear bridal prêt-a-porter collection is available for purchase on our online store. In the meantime, here is a closer look at the whole collection and our favourite pieces.
SUITED TO PERFECTION
One of our favourite things about this collection is their crisp tailor pieces. From the bridal suit-jacket to cropped or bootleg trousers to a dramatic floor-length coat, this series of ivory crêpe and silk satin-lined pieces are perfect for that formal rehearsal dinner or staying stylish for the plane ride to your romantic honeymoon destination. Even better yet, the classic elegance of these suit pieces will mean you can wear them to match your empowering boss-lady work wardrobe.
If a menswear-inspired power suit look is your bridal vibe, we recommend the Anelise tuxedo suit set. The minimalist ivory crêpe Anelise suit jacket features sleek contrasting silk satin lapels, jet pockets and is finished with a touch of glamour with a single silk tulle crystal button. It's a match made in style when worn with the slim cut, cropped Anelise trousers.
For brides who want to suit up but would like to add a little more drama and a more feminine twist, we recommend pairing their tailored floor-length Lille bridal coat with the Marie trousers. The fitted bootleg crêpe trousers not only elongates the legs but, when combined with the long fluid drape of the coat tail, gives a dramatic wow factor and adds softer feminine finishes for the overall look.
PAIR UP WITH CORSETS
If you've got the bridal trousers and the ivory jacket and are at a loss to what kind of top to wear with it for less of a going-to-work look and more of an I-am-the-bride, feel then the Galia Lahav prêt-a-porter corsets are for you. Mix and match these with any of the minimalist suits for different bridal occasions.
Our favourite would have to be Rosa corset with her delicate french filigree lace and hand appliquéd lace flowers. If lace isn't your thing, try Esther corset for her minimalist hand draped silk tulle look. The long train and asymmetric drape are perfect for those looking to add a little more style and drama to their bridal outfit. These corsets come with underwires, soft cups and boning for full support.
For many, bridal occasions calls for formality. This capsule bridal collection offers a selection of stunning minimalist sheath and slips dresses that cover different intricacy levels in the design. Brides can choose to go simple and classic with a silk satin dress or turn up the glam factor with sparkling silk sequins. For brides who love a touch of vintage whimsy, Galia has also designed a lace number.
One of our editor's top picks is the Lilou dress. It's a classic bias-cut silk satin dress with elegant diagonal seaming details and double cross-over spaghetti straps. It's perfect for brides who are after an intimate wedding with a sleek minimalist setting.
If Lilou is a little too minimalist, but a silk satin look is the bridal look, then Elise is your dress. This pale gold bias cut dress comes with a fully bone corset and silk lining for maximum comfort and fit. The shawl neckline with asymmetrical straps gives a stylish twist to the dress, while the diagonal front split adds a flirty element. It's perfect for a formal engagement party and is a great wedding dance dress.
If the glamour factor is essential when selecting your bridal wear, why not explore the fully rose gold sequins Jasmine dress or channel a more vintage take with Camille and its blush or ivory Chantilly lace. These dresses come in full length fitted sleeves, deep V necklines and front split to add a cheeky touch to the look.
SHORT AND DRAMATIC
Short dresses are perfect for brides looking to elope or saying their vows in a less formal wedding. They are also a great way to add drama and elegance to bridal showers and engagement parties. The Galia Lahav 'Lumière' collection features some empowering and minimalist short and midi length dresses for brides who are looking to forgo the full length long dress for whatever their bridal occasion calls for.
Every modern woman needs a good suit dress in their wardrobe, so why not one for your bridal occasion. For this Galia Lahav prêt-a-porter collection we have Stella dress. This sleek ivory tuxedo crêpe dress features contrasting silk satin lapels for a touch of style and hand covered silk tulle crystal button for glamour. It's the perfect power dress to rock to your bachelorette's party.
You can never go wrong with a minimalist ivory midi dress. The ivory Esme crêpe dress is pretty much perfect for every bridal occasion. This calf-length strapless dress features a fulled bone corset with a power mesh bodice for support and shaping, so you won't have to stress about any wardrobe malfunctions.
Perfect for a bride looking for a minimalist elopement dress with a bridal styled dramatic twist. This short crêpe dress is hand draped with silk tulle and features a long train for drama and asymmetric silk tulle straps for style. The best yet, it is fully lined in silk satin and features a fully boned and underwired corset for maximum comfort and support.
GO BOLD WITH A BODYSUIT
If you love to be different in your fashion choices, why not express your adventurous style with Sylvie bodysuit. This minimalist jersey draped bodysuit features cross over strap details and is perfect for those who love a good time on the dance floor. Finish the sleek suited look with the Lille coat or Anelise jacket.
A MORE CLASSIC GALIA LAHAV TOUCH
For the die-hard Galia Lahav fans who are still in love with the whimsical romance that is signature to the bridal couture house, one unique piece in this collection is for you. The Liana dress is a mix of hand appliquéd filigree lace and french floral lace. The dress comes in a classic Galia-style boned corset, a romantic full-length tulle skirt, and a hexagonal lace-over skirt. It's perfect for brides looking to add a bit of modern style romanticism to their intimate wedding.
