Ethereal with an Edge | Rubin Singer Bridal 2014
Can we say, stunning! Rubin Singer fearlessly turned tradition on its head for Bridal 2014. Translating boldness into wedding territory is kind of a risk, but Singer’s initial collection definitely starts off strong. Following three generations of couturiers, Rubin merges hints of “sexy” with standard classics for 2014 bridal wear- ultimately for a fresh result. Whether you prefer volume that wraps up the bodice, layers and layers of tulle, or a blinged out bustier, this collection has it all- with an added cool factor.
SINGER daringly stepped away from the regular ball gown or mermaid dresses (well, with a few exceptions for the classic newlywed), but instead pumped up the volume by making new folds, shapes, and silhouettes-symbolizing how no two brides are alike. This collection serves 21st Century brides, making dashes of color a must. Soothing hues dusted midnight blue, olive, and eggshell, were still as striking as the standard wedding white. It’s all in the details, as the intricate beading and braiding on the bodices harken back to his lineage of Russian designers, who’ve dressed everyone from prima ballerinas to royalty. Although if you don’t prefer a floor-sweeping confection, then the shorter, yet still striking “Claudette” alternative will give you more freedom.
Revamping classics is Singer’s specialty. Mixing sharp bodices with soft trains modernized the standard marriage silhouette, therefore showing how he will reach his aspiration for filling the wedding industry need for both elegance and edginess. His past as Associate Designer at Oscar de la Renta, Head Designer at Bill Blass, and Kai Milla Head Designer shaped a fresh perspective for his own brand once it began in 2007. Singer shows how the next generation of brides-to-be will rock femininity with a force. fdmLOVES Rubin Singer Bridal 2014 selects by Brigitte Segura, written by Mary Anderson.
