Oh, luxurious Lumina, full of light… Dreamers & Lovers latest mini capsule collection is seriously speaking to our boho-lovin’ souls! The six brand new gowns have that laid-back elegance that we’ve come to know and love from the brand. Replete with romantic silk and lace (of course), uber feminine silhouettes — we’re talking low backs and long sleeves — we have a feeling you’ll find a gown you won’t be able to resist!
Yanique Barnes, founder and designer of Dreamers & Lovers, shares a little bit about the inspiration: Lumina evokes the understanding that anything is possible, in a world 7 billion bodies strong, your souls have somehow found belonging. The laid-back wedding dresses are a symphony of laces and silks, rich and decadent yet ethereal in weight and wearability. These are bohemian wedding dresses through and through. We are sensory beings, inspired by what we see in the mirror, what we feel against our skin and how it makes us move; how our image becomes a conductor of sentiments to the people we interact with.
Doesn’t that sound positively enchanting? Just wait until you see all the gowns… prepare to fall head over heels!
Bonjour, ma belle, Claire! There’s something so whimsical and playful, yet sultry, about long lace sleeves, isn’t there? Designed to fit like a second skin, we’d want to be twirling in this lace masterpiece all night long! Oh, and the back dips into the prettiest V shape!
If you’re familiar with some of the popular Dreamers & Lovers gowns, the new Anais silhouette is a spin-off of their Azalea dress. That same flattering, defined waist, paired with romantic lace and darling details has us positively smitten.
Ooh la LOVE! We’re loving the sheer long sleeves + the closed back — coverage in a sophisticated and dare we say, sultry way… :)
Chloe is fresh and flirty with a form-fitting bodice, and just a peek of skin. The meticulous pleating is designed to flatter the curviest of hips, while drawing in the waistline. (Basically you’ll look like the goddess that you are in photos!)
We see you, Grace, and all your summery vibes! How divine is that lace detailing and the elegant waistline?
The design for this collection was slightly different than past collections. Yanique shares: Rather than create a storyline, and then design each dress to fit in to that story, we created each style individually. The only constant was the dresses each had to fit in the narrative of the easygoing bohemian bride. I took many of our best selling favorites, tweaked their silhouette, expressed them in different fabrics and most importantly, worked on getting the best possible fit for each design.
A major bonus? All of the dresses in the Lumina collection are available in a range of sizes, from 2-18. Additionally, gowns can be custom made to fit your measurements perfectly with Dreamers & Lovers’ complimentary made-to-measure service. Booyah!
