T E M P L E was established in 2017 by the creators of Bo & Luca. Through Founder and Creative Director Shannon Pittman’s interest in photography, architecture and contemporary culture, an alternative approach to bridal wear has been created. T E M P L E reflects a sense of effortless, modern femininity that takes cues from the bold, iconic heroines of decades past.
After 4 years designing luxury bridal wear, the creators of Bo & Luca have engineered a concentrated assortment of 10 youthful, minimalist and price-conscious gowns. The collection was previewed at 2017 New York Bridal Week.
Focused on fine fabrications of raw silk, intricate craftsmanship of hand-beaded techniques, and a contemporary fit, T E M P L E maintains luxury quality and design aesthetics that are accessible to women globally.
Despite growing interest by brides internationally for Bo & Luca, there was always one thing Shannon Pittman Creative Director and Founder, was concerned with. “It broke my heart... when women would email us enquiring about a gown only to find they could not afford it.” Shannon spent a year working with her team in Mumbai, India to develop a range of gowns made with the same raw silk fabrication and hand-beaded attention to detail as Bo & Luca, but at more affordable prices.
The designs that take cues from the boldness of the 70s but maintain the elegance and intricacy of an heirloom wedding gown. Like Bo & Luca’s signature line, T E M P L E remains effortless and relaxed, without boning, cinching or ties of traditional bridal wear. The gowns are as comfortable to wear as they are beautiful.
T E M P L E by Bo & Luca brings a new energy to the bridal industry. The brand is noticeably raw, confident and playful. The designs are unstructured and challenge typical wedding gowns, beckoning a new age in bridal wear. With flowing styles and loose silhouettes, even ladies who are self-proclaimed “non-brides” might reconsider.
