2015 has meant great change for bridal. Here at Bridepower, we have seen designers’ looks evolve drastically in spring lines – manufacturers famous for certain styles are now mixing things up to produce fresh, trendy pieces. Mikaella by Paloma Blanca is one designer to highlight whose looks have progressed to fit the demands of the modern bride. The collection was slated to have its normal array of silhouettes and detailing, but instead it released looks that surprised all.
Mikaella’s line has six simple satin gowns with straps. All fit and flare silhouettes, they feature little beading or lace and plain skirts. Deep backs adorn each of these, and some looks have illusion boat necks with slight decoration. Little fabric and structure make up these pieces, which translates into very clean lines and easy fits. Styles 1965, 1964, 1963, 1957, 1955, and 1954 all cater to the minimalist bride who believes that less is more!
Style 1956 is a look in which many brides have expressed interest. Delicate Chantilly lace scrolls beautifully underneath soft layers of tulle for a romantic, effortless gown. This type of trend-setting dress is perfect for an outdoor ceremony with a bohemian, natural twist. Very little fabric makes up this A-line style, ensuring total comfort while wearing it. Style 1956 is a look not seen from the hands of Mikaella stylists before; it’s just another surprising piece from their spring line.
A great semi-informal fit and flare, style 1952 offers a modern take on a classic design. Naked lace embroidery runs throughout the gown, with beading concentrated at the waist. Simple elegance epitomizes 1952, with a sweetheart neckline and spaghetti straps as a delicate addition. Exposed boning across the midriff is accented with a rhodium sash that ties against the low back. What a beautiful look to wear to your 2015 wedding!
Style 1952 follows in the footsteps of 1951, with minimal fabric and delicate detailing. This gown holds a V-neckline and the same fit and flare silhouette. On the back, a beautiful lace keyhole opens up the dress and creates a breathtaking effect. A similar rhodium belt adorns the waistline. 1951 is another stunner from the spring line!
Hitting home with more traditional brides, style 1959 also nods to the trends of today. Lace and organza encompass this dress, and the full A-line skirt is one of a handful spotted in the entire collection. The neckline falls just across the shoulder as an illusion portrait neckline, a beautiful throwback look for any bride searching for vintage notes on her dream dress. A ribbon belt accents the waist and ties into a bow at the sheer, deep back. Traditional modernity perfectly describes style 1959.
Although Mikaella’s spring 2015 line was a bit of a surprise, we at Bridepower loved the minimalist looks that came from its stylists. 2015 is a year of change for bridal, and these gowns for spring and summer are different but absolutely gorgeous in their own way. Bridal is never the same season to season, and we’re excited to see what comes next!
