It has been a celebration of sumptuous wedding dresses and for Amsale’s Fall 2013 collection she utilizes her affinity for silks once again and brings us her rendition of the modern bride.
No matter what, we always anticipate flawless lines of an Amsale wedding dress. She understands the architecture of the contemporary style, and always executes it so gorgeously. Despite having a very crisp look, Amsale’s Fall 2013 line drew in a bit of tradition with her take on the ball gown and incorporation of the classic sweetheart neckline.
The silhouette of the ball gown paints a picture of volume and is made for brides who seek a time-honored aesthetic. Amsale’s version delivers the volume, while emphasizing the “cleanliness” she gained notoriety for. Another element Amsale has earned recognition for is her constant unconventional style. She rarely follows the latest trends, but rather creates her own. Her vision and her stellar style are what makes brides flock to her gowns.
As we have seen in collections past, Amsale adores strapless gowns and particularly, sweetheart necklines. She harmonizes this romantic staple with her clean lines and sharp silhouettes with precision. Notably, she also incorporates the contemporary scoop neck and bateau necklines, yet these are usually paired with the new-fashioned trumpet or A-line silhouettes. Also, the addition of a peplum has returned and this trend is seen with a few designers this season, including Ines di Santo.
A shocking element of Amsale’s Fall 2013 wedding dresses are the bits and pieces of embellishments, a clear nod towards the overall trend of Fall 2013 bridal collections and also to her previous Spring 2013 collection. While it was kept to an acceptable minimum for Amsale standards, we are quite dazzled by the proficiency. Keeping to her vision at all times, wedding dresses decked out in lace and bodices beautifully beaded a la Amsale are things we would revel in if she decided to continue this stroke of genius.
Are you a more modern bride who would love to wear an Amsale gown? Or does your heart lie with the old world, vintage trends?
