Lily Allen's wedding dress brought Parisian bridal designer Delphine Manivet firmly onto the world stage, there is no denying that. But in many ways, it's also typecast her in so many minds to belong simply in the 'French vintage boho'-box, when in fact she is so much more.
For starters, Manivet has entered the world of Haute Couture - a small, restricted and very, very expensive world. But the matter at hand today is her bridal collection.
Showing at the Gramercy Park Hotel's garden terrace, a rock and electro soundtrack offset her wind- and air-inspired collection beautifully.
Of course those historic motifs are still there: the Juliette sleeves, choirboy necks and maiden A-line gowns, but there were also fun separates, athletic shorts and the most luxurious of cardigans.
The idea of craftsmanship here was prevalent: fabrics are left to their own devices, seemingly worked into their present shapes by the transformative powers of the wind and breeze. Rather than looking simple or sparse, it communicated an element of ownership, confidence and understanding.
Vintage-style fabrics were opulent and in some places seemed more suited to upholstering than dressmaking, and yet with Delphine's aesthetic it is hard to find fault in anything.
