In Bloom for Brides
by Libby Dowd
Wedding gowns are traditionally white, but lately color has been making its way down the runway—and the aisle. From the neutral blush colors that are appearing in virtually every designer’s collection to Vera Wang’s shocking black gown, color is coming on strong. So why should bridal lingerie stay all white?
In Bloom by Jonquil is introducing its new line of intimates for summer deliveries. These styles mix bold black trims and flirty polka dots—making them perfect for the bride who wants to maintain some tradition but still have a little bit of fun with color and pattern. “I was inspired by ivory and black high drama impact paired with fluffy, frilly laces,” says designer Diane Samandi.
“Brides seem to gravitate towards short items—chemises, babydolls and short jacket sets,” adds Samandi. And stretch lace is a large part of the collection, too. “It is an important fabric for us—especially bridal gifts—because the fit is so forgiving.”
