If you've already found your wedding dress, look away now. Because the collection of gowns we're sharing with you guys today, is guaranteed to turn your head and make your heart skip a beat.
Elegant and sexy in equal measures, it's the latest offering from Tel Aviv designer, Lihi Hod.
Inspired by the starlets of vintage film, these dresses are impossibly glamorous, and just made for a bold, confident, and style savvy bride.
Some, are full on sexy with plunging necklines and daring silhouettes, some, a little more coy and romantic, with Bardot shoulders and retro skirts, while others are a little more fashion forward and modern.
An award winning talent, who's worked with Christian Dior in Paris and Eli Tahari in New York, we think the new collection of Lihi Hod wedding dresses will take the already-acclaimed designer to a whole other level.
So, before you start swooning, we'll pass you over to fashion house team to tell us a little more about the utterly covetable, Film Noir in White…
From the Designer
The perfect combination of classical and desirable, the Spring/Summer 2015 collection is inspired by the unforgettable screen legends of Film Noir and the eternal femme fatale.
In her journey of inspiration for the new spring bridal collection, Lihi Hod has crafted her own take on Hollywood’s golden age, a return to the 1940s with its legendary stars such as Rita Hayworth and Lauren Bacall.
“I found myself gravitating towards the glamorous and dramatic decade of Film Noir,” says Hod, “to the right blend the time offered of contemporary fashion and an eternal, classical femininity. Like in those movies, my collection highlights the image of a woman who is an eternal femme fatale: delicate and refined, yet powerful and impressive.”
With this inspiration, the collection combines desirable, sexy appeal with the elegance characteristic of 1940s and 1950s fashion, in a variety of items that together form a precise and timeless ensemble.
The unique look is heightened by a textile and textural richness combining lace, embroidery and pearl beading, as well as a play on chiaroscuro and translucency.
Hod’s distinct signature and her rich experience in the Paris couture world are reflected in this collection.
It is characterized by draping techniques, an impressive play on volumes, use of the finest silkscut on the bias and voluminous pleats and patterns to highlight and compliment the feminine silhouette.
A closer look at the gowns reveals not only the couture techniques employed to create them but also the profound design thought invested in their every tiny detail.
Simply divine. I love how each one is so different, but yet they're all so desirable, glamorous and a little dramatic too.
There's a lovely quote from Lihi Hod on her site, “For me, each bride is her own world. Every bride has her special fantasy, desire and dream. For me, the process of creating the bridal gown is like making dreams become reality.” That pretty much sums up these gowns, right?
Lihi Hod dresses are priced from $5500, and stocked in Tel Aviv, New York and San Francisco. Find out more about this stunning gowns on the Lihi Hod website.
