Rachel Zoe is adding a new twist to the Old English wedding day rhyme
In addition to assembling a look that incorporates old, new, borrowed and blue elements, the Los Angeles-based designer and editor advocates a touch of subtlety to lighten the spirit of the monumental day with her bridal capsule collection, which debuted in September. When Zoe discovered that women have been slipping into dresses from her past ready-to-wear collections for their weddings, she decided to make a line of effortlessly glamorous pieces for every kind of bride. “I’ve included white in every season…probably with the subconscious intention to dress brides,” she confesses. Now Zoe has made it official, designing four modern gowns for brides-to-be this spring. There’s even a white, fluid sequin suit for those who wish to channel Bianca Jagger’s iconic custom Yves Saint Laurent look—for her wedding to Mick Jagger—that can alternatively be worn to a rehearsal or engagement party. “I wanted to create pieces for all occasions that go along with the wedding day,” the designer says. And, if all of this sounds too nuanced, glamour-seekers can emulate Zoe’s personal aisle style by amplifying the look with a tiara and a pair of white gloves. shoprachelzoe.com/bridal
