"Romantic," "ethereal," "delicate," "feminine," are all the adjectives most frequently used to describe wedding collections—it can get a little redundant. But that's okay, because brides are going to buy white dresses no matter what, so why bother doing something different?
Occasionally though, bridal fashion gets disrupted, and designers put out innovative wedding looks that go beyond the merely pretty. Sometimes they are inspired by rock stars and David Bowie; other times, they honor women who refuse to stick to the status quo.
Theia, the brand behind the Bowie-inspired collection a few years ago, once again thought outside the box when asking the following question for its Spring 2020 collection that debuted during Bridal Fashion Week yesterday: What would '70s icons Bianca Jagger and Farrah Fawcett-Majors wear if they were getting married today?
The answer is a collection paying homage to the famous New York City night club, Studio 54, and features plunging necklines, thigh-high slits, jumpsuits and dresses in lame fabric and sequins that "dazzle like disco balls," all conceived by creative director and designer Don O'Neill to be suitable for today's bride—a girl who likes to "dance the night away."
O'Neill updated Jagger's iconic wedding look of a YSL tuxedo jacket, with nothing underneath, paired with a skirt and a veiled sun hat so that it's now a low-cut jumpsuit with a hat and a slip dress paired with a sequin cape. Popular Halston looks from the '70s also got the modern bride treatment in the form of a drape satin halter gown with a thigh-high slit and a platinum lame shirt-gown.
Ahead, see some of our favorite looks from the Theia Spring 2020 collection.
