Peter Copping exposed a ready-to-wear influence with this gorgeous bridal collection, reinterpreting styles from his Spring 2016 runway with a bridal twist.
For the Oscar de la Renta Fall 2016 bridal collection, Peter Copping showed us a modern side to romance with geometric rose patterns in a breathtaking tulle skirt, a fresh spin on the Victorian era.
The delicate petal-like construction of a bodice appeared on a bustier-topped gown; his Latin-inspired flounced capelet came to life in an exquisite frothy lace, drew from a similar style from the Oscar de la Renta Spring collection.
Delicate embroidery — such as pearls, pale pink floral appliqués, sequins and bugle beads stitched together to create flower shapes — covered sheer bateau necklines and voluminous ballskirts, creating a soft, ethereal and distinctly feminine mood. A couple of sheer lace tops, done in short-sleeve and halter versions with ribbon ties, could be styled over column gowns or worn on their own with Copping’s frothy tulle skirts, one of them covered in hand-cut rosettes.
Pieces like the languid tiered dress summed up Copping’s winning formula at the house so far: unfussy but unfailingly feminine, refined but never too practiced.
