Rixo’s new bridal collection doesn’t disappoint on details, drama or design …
In normal times, BC (before Covid) brides-to-be began looking for “the dress” up to eight months before their wedding date – thus allowing time for placing an order, having it made and creating time for alterations. With ongoing restrictions and many ateliers closed, some sadly for good, it seems that the days of trying on up to 50 styles to find the perfect gown have gone. Smaller weddings have also meant that brides want simplicity and value, alongside the ease of ordering a dress online that is readily available.
Channelling this trend is fashion brand Rixo, which debuted its new bridal collection today at London Fashion Week. Co-founders Henrietta Rix and Orlagh McCloskey placed an emphasis on fabric and fit as well as individualism. The limited edition, vintage-inspired 26-piece collection is made in a bespoke minimal-crease, 100 per cent silk material – each piece is made to stand the test of time.
From traditional details (such as lace inserts and beautiful jacquards) to contemporary tailoring with ostrich feathered trims (and sequins), the collection is available to order online now and prices range from £295 to £1,450.
Accessories are available to buy alongside the collection. To help find the perfect style and fit there is a bridal specialist on hand for one-to-one virtual appointments. The bonus? Many of the styles can be worn long after the wedding is over; www.rixo.co.uk.
