This collection is so cool.
If you follow us on Snapchat (and if not, you really should!) you'll know that a few weeks ago, we went to meet the wonderful team at Spanish bridal brand, Otaduy, to check out their new collection.
And it was all kinds of awesome.
With names like Coppola, Bardot, Curie, Nina Simone and Earhart, their free spirited collections are inspired by and aimed at, bold women who make their own rules. And their latest offering, ‘I Do' is no different.
Stylish separates, bad ass fringing, cute cami dresses and glistening embellishments, make this retro-influenced collection stand out by a mile.
And an edgy Studio 54-esque lookbook helps too!
Scroll down to see why fashion brides are going crazy for Otaduy, but first, lets here more about the era, and the ladies, who inspired the ‘I Do' collection…
About the Collection
Glitter and mirror balls, the glamour of the endless parties of Studio 54 and New York in the seventies, David Bowie and Bianca Jagger riding onto the dance floor on horseback…
Glamour and disco are two of the main sources of inspiration for the new Otaduy collection, ‘I Do’.
The other is a series of women from different eras who we admire for their strength and creativity, ranging from Lena Dunham to Charlotte Brontë, including figures like Miranda July, Tamara de Lempicka and Frida Kahlo.
This year’s designs have a notably seventies feel, with dresses featuring bat sleeves and guipures reminiscent of the most glamorous parties in NYC in the seventies.
Two-piece dresses once again figure prominently in the collection, from silk gauze skirts with more than ten metres of fabric for fabulous drape to new tulle skirts. Among the most charismatic pieces is the Rosalind jacket, which reflects the leitmotiv of the new collection in its embroidered “I Do” and fringe on the sleeves.
For this collection, we chose the perfect setting for a very special photo session: Barcelona concert hall La Paloma.
Closed to the public for seven years now, we were lucky enough to be able to use this legendary hall, which brings back so many great memories for all of us, for a super glam-rock shoot that is perfectly in tune with the designs.
A collection we’re happy to finally be able to present, made up of dresses that each have their own special magic and so have been named after the magical women who inspire us.
Otaduy is a new concept of bridal firm that is inspired by music, cinema and art, and specially designed for brides with personality, who really want to be themselves on their wedding day.

Don't they look gorgeous? Honestly, they're even more beautiful in the flesh, so versatile too, they could be mixed, matched and adapted to suit your style and the feel of your day.
