Claire Pettibone The White Album Spring 2019 Bridal Collection

For the last few years, world-renowned bridal designer Claire Pettibone has wowed the bridal world with the inclusion of beautiful coloured wedding dresses in trend-setting new shades and patterns. This season however she has gone against this trend, introducing the romantic, simplistic look of pure, all white wedding dresses in the Claire Pettibone The White Album Spring 2019 Collection.

Each Claire Pettibone collection is always much anticipated, and this collection is no exception. Staying true to her oh so feminine and romantic aesthetic, each stunning dress has an ethereal and bohemian look of elegance.

The White Album collection is a cleansing of the palette. A touch of the pure. Classic, romantic wedding dresses with sensuous silhouettes and graceful details.

Claire Pettibone The White Album Spring 2019 Bridal Collection - Sahara Dress

“I know white and ivory are obvious in bridal, but for me, designing a collection with no colour is actually a first! Each season is an evolution, and sometimes a fresh start from the last. Since my Vagabond Collection was colour-filled, I felt the inspiration for this season to work exclusively in shades of white. There is a simplicity and a purity to an absence of colour, where the focus becomes purely on silhouette, texture and detail” – Claire Pettibone

The exquisite dresses in the Claire Pettibone The White Album collection incorporate whimsical elements and luxury details. The addition of detachable capes is the main feature of the fabulous collection. So beautiful, they add an extra dimension to the wedding dresses. The Spring 2019 collection also showcases delicate fabrics, subtle, soft romantic embroidery, lace over-layers to die for, pretty sleeves, sheer layers and so much more.

Here are just a few of the dresses from the Claire Pettibone The White Album Spring 2019 collection with head-turning detail…

Brides looking for a totally unique bridal outfit should take a look at Stewart, a short beaded shift dress with rounded low-back and fringe tassel hem. The model in this campaign shoot wears this with high-leg gladiator sandals creating an almost Viking look.

Sophisticated, effortless glamour and chic silhouettes in rich fabrics complete this collection. Subtle finishing touches include soft tucks and pleats, understated beading, sheer fabric panels, and beguiling illusion details.

I adore the colours of the dresses, especially the soft blush which Rita calls ‘peony’; it’s so pretty and feminine. This colour looks so incredible with the divine detailing, like on these three beauties…
