Designer Spotlight: Christos 2015

I am a fan of Christos. I’ve written about the brand previously and given a chance, I would wear a Christos gown if I were to get married all over again. So it’s no surprise that I’d be featuring it again starting with their Fall 2015.

The things I love about the collection: it was all about white lace, a stark contrast to the colour of Spring 2015. Here we a see a softer shade of lace, of satin, of silk. Patchwork. Intricate. Romantic. All the things we can’t say “No” to, right?

Lihi Hod Bridal Collection 2014

“For me, each bride is her own world. Every bride has her special fantasy, desire and dream. For me, the process of creating the bridal gown is like making dreams become reality. Every bride receives our full attention and every process of designing and creation leads to a dress that is truly one of a kind.”

– Lihi Hod

Leading bridal gowns designer Lihi Hod launches a new collection inspired by vintage jewelry. Textile affluence, layers and transparencies along with complex couture embroideries create a new ravishing collection.

“Try to imaging that moment when you open an old jewelry box” Lihi explains. “You might discover an exceptional collection shining and glimmering, full of depth and sensitively crafted. I wanted to recreate this moving moment through my dresses. To turn them into jewelry in their own right”.

For over a year Hod collected textiles from around the globe to use in the new collection, aspiring to create a rich and diverse look for each dress in the collection. Depth is created by combining layers of opaque and transparent fabrics such as silk chiffons and tulles with a variety of laces. The color palette ranges from gleaming whites to cream to nudes.

Swarovski crystals, glass beads and gemstones were used in true couture techniques. Hours of embroidering to the layers of supple fabric resulted in a harmonious look, resembling the jewelry the designer had dreamed of.

The result – A collection of unique, flattering dresses, embodying a nonchalant, delicate boho-chic look. The dresses all incorporate body suits or shapers that provide a contemporary look and allow for narrow silhouettes and flattering low cut backs.

Lihi’s dresses, ever in tune with current fashions, include this season two super-hot pieces: A maxi skirt, paired with a trendy midriff-revealing cropped top, and an embroidered ensemble consisting of pants and a light tank top.

Inspiration: Lihi Hod Bridal 2013

How come I’ve only learned about Lihi Hod this year? In case you haven’t read about her work, she’s a designer based in Israel and after design school, she interned in Dior with John Galliano. Fast forward to this year, her Bridal 2013 Collection has “romantic” sewn in every thread of her design pieces, with a side stitch that reads, “sultry”.  I’m loving her collection at the moment. Don’t you agree?
