On a tiny little street in central London called Woburn Walk, sits one of the most beautiful bridal boutiques in the world. With two traditional Victorian shop fronts facing one another, Halfpenny London's boutique and atelier aren't easy to miss. With fresh, stylish blooms and magical window displays; you can't help but be lured in to this bridal wonderland.
And lured in we were, with the brand-new Black Edit - the latest collection from Halfpenny London, and we couldn't wait to share.
The Black Edit is as simple as it sounds, but by no means simple in beauty. If you love Kate Halfpenny's gowns as much as we do, then the brand-new collection of raven black silks, lace, soft satin and floaty organza will seriously send you head over heels. The edit features some of Halfpenny London's most popular gowns, but reimagined in a striking black palette. Transforming the feel of the delicate ivory numbers, these dark and romantic pieces were inspired by the return of after-dark glamour and the decision to delve deeper into occasion wear designs.
Kate Halfpenny, designer and founder of the brand, said, "The Black Edit is a decadent, unashamedly bold collection of exquisite pieces, fusing contemporary styling and distinctive silhouettes from my bridal collection. With my obsession for wearing black and with the rare opportunity to work in dark colours it is super exciting to release this edit of black dresses and separates for everyone to wear."
Fans of the brand, including Millie Mackintosh and Daisy Lowe, were in attendance at the opening, wearing their pick of the new collection. Featuring tough leather and textured sheepskin against light and delicate lace makes the edit a gorgeous go-to for any evening occasion.
And while the pictures are beyond beautiful (hello, winter bridesmaid inspiration!), you really need to see the pieces move to appreciate the brains behind these designs. Lucky for us, they've released a short film showing off the best of the edit. So you can see how they are really meant to be.
Fallen hard? We thought as much…
