Designer Feature // Bo & Luca x Neue Bride
We want to introduce a new series featuring and focusing on our amazing designers! Each week we will introduce you to one of the lovely designers we carry in the shop and share their collections with you, so you can become more familiar with the styles we carry! This week, get to know Bo & Luca!
"The Bo & Luca story is one of art and beauty, of exoticism and culture; one of artisan skill and ancient craftsmanship, steeped in the magical world of couture...
Rewriting the rules of bridal design and not driven by either trends or tradition, these are the gowns that tell an epic story – the story of the wearer and her loves. Speaking to her traversing ways, to her passion for adventure, to her desire to take the road less travelled, to her liberation to dress for herself and her story. Fiercely independent with a soulful allure, her style is as innate as her story unique. Her days are spent wandering and her euphoric nights dreaming. Wherever she is, she is going her own way.
Woven into the fabric of each piece is the magic of traditional artisan techniques and craftsman skills. Designed and hand cut in Australia by designer Shannon Pittman, couture-like pieces are hand beaded at an Atelier in India, where each bead is hand placed on the finest silk by local master craftsman over a three month process. The dying art of tambour, traditional artisans skills and textile traditions protected and honoured, creating the label’s signature luxurious aesthetic."
"With the free-spirited, daringly different bride instinctually at the forefront of her design vision, each piece is unexpected, unique, unimaginably beautiful and unlike anything remotely bridal – speaking instead to the wearer and her loves.
From here Shannon travels to India to bring the collection to life. Spending months sourcing luxurious fabrics and the finest silks from the local silk mills and overseeing the intricate beadwork and embellishment by local master craftsman, that come together to create the breathtaking finishes and opulent fabrics, synonymous with a Bo & Luca gown."
At Neue Bride, we carry TEMPLE by Bo & Luca including all the gowns and accessories pictured in this post. TEMPLE is effortless and relaxing, without boning, cinching, and ties of traditional bridalwear, these gowns are as comfortable to wear as they are beautiful.
So who is the TEMPLE bride? She is raw, an individualist, confident, playful, bold, minimalist, stark and oh so cool!
