Hyacinthe by Anne Barge
Anne Barge Spring 2014 Bridal Collection
This past Sunday, I had the pleasure previewing the Anne Barge Spring 2014 Collection. Sundays are usually already a bit blissful for me. They might consist of a better-than-normal breakfast or brunch, a little coffee, and usually a day of free time and relaxation. So, if one were to improve upon how to spend one's Sunday, sitting at the Anne Barge show, ensconced in the elegantly appointed Hyde Room in The London Hotel, previewing the Spring 2014 Bridal Collection, is certainly one of the finest ways to do it.
Always a classic and elegant line, Anne Barge's Spring 2014 collection continued the legacy as being an impeccable choice for brides.
For the Spring 2014 collection, Anne was inspired by the sense of lightness as evoked by the Impressionist painter, Claude Monet, and combined that reference with with silhouettes inspired by those of famed couturier Pierre Balmain.
I invite you to view these amazing gowns, right from the runway. I particularly thought Hyacinthe --pictured above--with a perfect balance of tulle and lace, was exceptionally lovely, Marguerite's neckline and overskirt were elegant, Narcisse was stunning, and Grenadier's herringbone patterning were something to behold as well.
