Peter Langner presented two collections at the 3 West Club, New York, Couture Autumn/Winter 2016 and Spring 2017 Bridal.

For his bridal collection, Langner drew upon 'a feeling and spirit of individuality and style rather than a theme or inspiration.' This was a return to the traditional and classic, albeit with the designer's expert modern edge. 'For us, 'sexy' is old and overdone,' says Langner, 'we are looking for a true wedding look, for a simplicity and elegance rather than opulence which too often goes the wrong way.'

A classic mermaid gown was upgraded for 2017 with asymmetrical draped details, while a silk organza ballgown was debuted with a chic lace cape. Brights also made an appearance, with a textured pink gown and grand bolero proving Langer knows how to make a statement.

'Stand out gowns included Veronique, a sheath gown in silk crepe with embroidered sleeves and chiffon cubes and Alma, a strapless gown in silk magnolia with huge train. This was exit dressing at its best,' says Brides fashion director Bryony Toogood.

The Couture Autumn/Winter 2016 collection was inspired by Alberto Burri's exhibition at the Guggenheim and totally befitting of its ballroom location.

'Elegant, exquisitely cut gowns, with Langner's signature clever and unusual mixes of textures and fabrics made for a special, stylish and modern collection,' says Bryony Toogood. Deep berries and navys were truly red-carpet worthy, but also provided an alternative option to white for brides.
