We’re at the brink of the summer wedding season, and the hunt for the perfect bridal ensembles must be in full bloom. There’s something about vibrant colours and summers that creates unique fashion camaraderie, making it the most pleasant trend for the scorching months. The bridal colour palette is subjected to the preference of the bride, but the season, the trends and the destination also plays an integral role in that decision. It doesn’t matter if you’re a bride who tilts towards minimalist or is an all-out maximalist; the summer sorbet palette has a versatile range of shades that will complement all different kinds of personalities.
Falguni Shane Peacock’s newest bridal couture collection pays homage to the rich cultural heritage of Rajasthan, by seeking inspiration from the magical portion in Bundi Mahal that is the glorious Phool Mahal. The quaint section of the palace overflows with innovation in terms of architecture, colour, texture and vibe. Instead of scattered big floral motifs, the embroideries are poetically assembled like intricate, dainty foliage patterns. Their new line is a visual treat of Technicolor lehengas and anarkalis, redefining the sublime beauty of traditional couture. The garments are meticulously detailed in a foray of shades like teaberry pink, garnet, primrose yellow, quartz pink and metallic blue, which will make your wedding trousseau upbeat and ultra-modern.
Here are some of the ensembles you can adorn for all the different functions at your wedding fiesta.
1) PRIMROSE YELLOW LEHENGA – This light-weight lehenga is tailor-made for the sun-downer haldi/mehendi occasion. The bright, sunshine shaded skirt with a fun ruffle detailed blouse will strike the perfect balance between traditional and quirky. Team it with exquisite floral jewellery and dewy makeup keep the look clean and fresh.
2) GARNET LEHENGA – If the vermilion red shade is too bright and traditional for your liking, this deep, garnet-hued lehenga bearing intricate thread and mirror work detail will make for the perfect swap. The lehenga is an ideal choice for the modern bride who wants to stay true to her culture as well as her contemporary style.
3) ROSE QUARTZ LEHENGA – The colour and the silhouette has a Victorian vibe etched to it, it’s feminine-chic and will make for the perfect sangeet or cocktail lehenga where you can make a statement and still be comfortable while you’re dancing the night away.
4) METALLIC BLUE ANARKALI – Anarkalis are officially revamped and making their way back into your closet. The floor-length silhouette is comfortable and has the optimum amount of flare you need for that dramatic twirl. You can notch the bold quotient by adding a deeper neckline or by going for an off-shoulder cut. The metallic blue chrome applique Anarkali is another cocktail ready silhouette, which is the perfect balance of subdued glamour and traditional gravitas.
