More and more brides are looking for alternatives to the classic wedding gown. Thankfully more and more designers are heeding the call and offering fantastic solutions for brides. Brothers Gregory and Stephen Nato have once again designed a charming handful of separates and easy dresses that have a hint of their signature retro-appeal (they love the fab fifties!), yet remain totally modern and classic.
My favorite look is their creamy cashmere V-neck sweater, which gets paired with a sweeping satin A-line ball skirt fitted with a high cummerbund waistband giving it a fresh formality. Topping off the look is an ivory wool beret balanced just so beneath an open-net birdcage veil. So Mad Men!
I also loved their silk taffeta mandarin collar shirt that hugs the bodice snugly and sits atop a soft, tulle ballerina skirt. A shiny metallic silver bow belt wraps the waist to show off a girly silhouette. Fancy also looks back to the 1930's and 40's for a bit of inspiration. Their long, languid charmeuse gowns offer brides-to-be fluid shapes with draping and ruffles that give the wearer drama and ease without complicated bells and whistles. How Fancy!
