Inspired by country glamour and the Nashville, Tennessee music scene, 'Islands in the Stream' is the brand-new collection for 2019 by design duo Belle & Bunty.
From its humble roots around the campfire to the glitz and glamour of its biggest stars performing at the iconic Grand Ol Opry country music venue, this collection pays homage to those heartfelt love songs that beckon the great outdoors and the powerful independent women that wander across them.
'Islands in the Stream' sees the designers bring to life their most dazzling and embellished collection to date; think shear dresses dripping in translucent sequins, dainty floral lace and plunging backs crafted with sumptuous crepe back satin. Highlights from the collection include: the Evelyn Dress created with shimmering sequins over a double layered satin under dress. The signature godets in a sheer tulle make this a dreamy and luminous piece. From its demure neckline and delicate button details to its plunging seductive back, the effortlessly chic and sophisticated Thelma blouse is a ladylike and scandalous all-in-one. The Cassidy Dress epitomises femininity with its soft capped sleeves and delicate flower field lace, complete with a warm cream satin mid layer that glimmers through the ivory filigree lace.
Hannah & Alice, Belle & Bunty Creative Directors say, "We wanted the style of the shoot to look and feel like the model meant business. We feel this is particularly important in the current climate and would give our collection a ballsy point of difference. Bridal seems to be littered with imagery of whimsey and fragility but this season, we want our message to mirror that of our brides: strong, fun and natural."
