2015 was a pretty glorious year for all things wedding dresses (check out some of our favourite collections) and 2016 is set to be even better.

This year’s collections are more creative, more beautiful, more sexy and more romantic than ever before, and we can’t wait to share the latest trends and most stunning gowns with you guys, over the coming months.

And how better to start off the year, than with a collection that epitomises two of our most beloved aesthetics; Parisian chic and London cool.

It’s the gorgeous new collection of La Poésie Bridal wedding dresses.

From effortless slips and flowing silk skirts to delicate details and classic silhouettes, this collection is bold yet classic, with designs that are modern, feminine, and insanely pretty.

Perhaps our favourite thing about this collection though is how versatile it is. Paired with Doc Martins or Louboutins, these beautiful gowns could be styled to be bohemian, glamorous, hipster or vintage, depending on your day.

About the Collection

London-based label La Poésie Bridal, specialises in edgy yet elegant silk and lace bridal gowns made in Britain that are perfect for modern, independent and fashionable brides.

For the 2016 Collection, designer Monika Kashimbaya who studied fashion in Paris, trained at Nina Ricci was inspired by French brides who tend to go for a pared-back, less is more style for their wedding day and look cool, confident and absolutely stunning.

Newly launched, the 2016 collection has gowns that are perfect for city weddings including Anouk gown in silk crepe de chine with a cowl bodice, slender straps and sheer French lace back and Coco gown in silk marocain with draped pearls on the back, a nod to Coco Chanel’s trademark necklaces.

And for county weddings Coralie’s pretty lace bust and swirling chiffon skirt and Stephanie’s chic elegance are ideal.

Aren’t they so pretty? I just love the retro styling with the sunglasses, but they could also look really chic and classic with a low bun and loose bouquet, don’t you think?
