While 2020 saw weddings (along with everything else in our social calendar) side-lined due to coronavirus, many brides-to-be are hoping this year will be the one they get to tie the knot. Many of our engaged friends, tired of putting their lives on hold, have vowed that their nuptials – whatever they look like – will go ahead in 2021, and after a year devoid of reasons to dress up, the big day look has more significance than ever.
Brides still searching for “the one” are guaranteed to fall in love with at least one design from Rixo’s first bridal collection. Over a year in the making, the 26-piece range launches today (Monday 15th February), and offers exquisite pieces for before and after the big day, styles for bridesmaids and beautiful bridal accessories. Fluid silk fabrics are a Rixo signature, but for this collection co-founders Henrietta Rix and Orlagh McCloskey developed a brand new, bespoke 100 per cent silk material with minimal creasing.
From feather-trimmed shifts to all-over sequins, bias-cut silk to beautiful lace, there’s a look for every bride’s vibe. Designs nod to iconic wedding looks from decades gone by – the Adeline & Joan two-piece is the perfect homage to Bianca Jagger – and there’s a jumpsuit too if dresses aren’t your thing. Complete the look with a pearl-embellished headband, elegant lace veil or cool silk scarf. Prices start at £350 and the sizes range from 6-16.
Because choosing a wedding outfit is almost as much of a commitment as the marriage itself (we joke. kinda) Rixo will have a dedicated bridal specialist on hand to ensure your big day look suits your big day – and you.
