The spring and summer months are all about romance—it is wedding season, after all. And from Riccardo Tisci's helm at Burberry, to Hedi Slimane's new Celine, the designers seemed to be feeling the love.
The Spring 2019 collections were a wash of bridal white and ivory, and the type of frills and ruffles one finds in love stories and English literature. Here, the key alabaster looks of the season feel at home in Hampshire, perfectly matched with the enchanting English countryside—and an overwhelming array of Valentine-esque scarlet roses.
It's all too tempting to try and capture the image of a woman in love (especially a bride), and while today's snap-happy culture makes it easy to take thousands of frames in a single click, sometimes her essence is best saved for a proper portrait.
For that sitting, opt for feminine flutters of chiffon, gossamer laces, and poetic silhouettes that feel straight out of a romance novel—whether you're a bride, or not.
