New Collection from Halfpenny London: The Air That We Breathe

By  | 

Happy Friday! We’re feeling full of romance today as Valentines Day is on the horizon – have you got your card sorted yet? To round off the week we’re sharing the latest collection from Halfpenny London, The Air That We Breathe. The stylish collection is incredible and perfect for fashion-forward brides who adore modern bridal styling. 

As Kate Halfpenny explained, “At the very beginning of my career as a designer and stylist, I would draw the same silhouette – a structured, corset-style bodice nipped in at the waist, accentuated by a huge billowing skirt made up of layer upon layer of soft, almost translucent, tulle. At that point, bridal wear was fairly limited and traditional and the option to express your own sense of style by experimenting with fabrics or simply adding a cool jacket or cape was unheard of, yet always made complete sense to me. Now, twenty years later, I have revisited and reimagined those original sketches by creating a capsule collection of gowns and separates designed to work together. This new collection will captivate our Halfpenny brides who desire grown-up glamour, style and romance.” 

The Air That We Breathe includes sixteen beautifully crafted designs, each one named after a different place in London – a nod to the city, which Kate has lovingly called home throughout her career so far. Originally inspired by the desire to re-create the classic, much-loved ball gown shape synonymous with bridal design, the collection of gowns and separates evolved during Kate’s recent relocation to the Kent coast and the contrast from bustling city to the serenity and space that now surrounds her. Incorporating couture techniques with delicate textiles including lace, tulle, organza, satin, silk and sequins, each unique piece falls gracefully and effortlessly, allowing gentle movement and flow.

Halfpenny London collections are available exclusively from The White Gallery, Newry.
