A desert oasis of cinematic style from L'eto Bridal
L’eto Bridal continues their story of an escapist this season in desert town, Palm Springs. Shooting against sun-baked colours of Salvation mountain and the dramatic mountain range making a wonderfully nostalgic backdrop that reflects the city’s 60s iconic era.
Designer Anya Ostapenko links the inspiration of an era long past into her signature delivery of contemporary designs with an approach to newness.
The collection shows a dimensional play on twists, panels, and sheerness manifests in voluminous chiffon and delicate cover ups. Unfussy and elegant, these gowns are an effortless way to showcase the L’eto bride as a woman of her own standing. The subtle fluidity of the pieces with soft volumes of sleeves, flowing skirts, and trailing sashes.
Anya Ostapenko delivers a collection of bridal separates with offerings of sensual fitted gowns and an ethereal sheer cape interspersed between.
Bridal separates are the key direction this season, and they serve as delicate canvases of for glimmering patterns of embroidery and beads. Blouses are cropped at midriff and offer a refreshing take on the pastoral combination of high collars and long skirts that caress exposed skin with a barely-there touch. Each duo is birthed into a sophisticated and quietly cool bridal outfit that seamlessly integrates into each bride’s existing lifestyle. Post-ceremony blues don’t exist on this season’s pieces only because there’s the possibility of wearing it again and again, in any way they like.
L’eto Bridal has evaded the look of traditional heavy-handed decoration and fabrics. There’s a common thread of worldliness and wistfulness that dictates this story, and Anya reimagines nostalgia into a restrained sense of voyage and juxtaposition.
