We see a fair few wedding gowns over here at HM, so believe us when we say L’eto Bridal’s brand spanking new collection, La Europa, is all kinds of wonderful. The twelve-piece bevy boasts the brand’s signature femme vibe as well as a hefty dose of European class. Heavily influenced by the classic and rich architecture of Europe, crisp pleats, thoughtful asymmetry and lustrous silks are abundant. Tis’ all about the structure, and we are here for it.
There are no stale silhouettes here, sweet readers. Instead, you will find an array of delicious details including pearly straps, scoop backs and buttoned sleeves. Our fave? L’eto’s signature beaded motif of sparkling fronds that can be found scattered throughout.
We even spy a touch of a 90s influence which, let’s be honest, we ADORE. Piece 30 brings back the sleek strapless, thigh-split gown favoured by the late 20th century but with a subtle difference. Strewn with the collection’s signature beaded motif, this is our pick. The best part about this look is, without a doubt, its adaptability. L’eto has done brides all over the world a great deed by offering up a ruffled sleeve option as well as a sheer overcoat that allows for three distinct looks based off the one gorge gown.
Statement pieces galore, nothing quite beats Piece 31, the clear darling of the collection. The statement asymmetry of this gown, paired with precise structure and texture, acknowledges this season’s bridal trends and completely surpasses them.
We are also pretty damn fond of Piece 26, another asymmetric number. An understated take on the same trend, the delicate embellished straps of this gown bring that extra element we have come to expect from L’eto. Long-sleeved Piece 28? We have five words: Be still our beating hearts.
Prices range from $1700 through to $7000. If you’d like to get your hands on these goods asap then head online here or pop into our fave new Canberra boutique, Mrs Fray. If you simply can’t get enough of L’eto then pop on over here to view a whole heap of HM brides donning the contemporary brand for their big day. We also got chatting to designer Anya Ostapenko and got the lo-down on all things L’eto. You can find her super fun interview right here.
