Anthropologies Bridal Line—BHLDN (VI)

Inspired by the pompom-decked dandies of eighteenth century Spain, Anna Sui adorns her easy-fitting, ivory sheath with hand-cut poms made from hundreds of bundled threads along its straps, sweetheart neckline, and all the way down its multi-tiered, flamenco-inspired skirt. Look closely throughout these mosaics and you’ll spot pairs tiny lovebirds embroidered in antique gold. Fits closer to body through bust and thigh; easier through low hip and leg.

Hopelessly romantic, from the floor-grazing tulle that peeks out from its hand-embroidered and appliquéd top skirts to the twisted spaghetti straps and crisscrossing back. Fittingly, Fleur Wood picks a sun-kissed blush to color her textured sheath. Tieback and zipper closure. Removable bust cups add additional support.

What seems like a thousand tonal tiers of crinkled silk chiffon cascade down three quarters of this corseted BHLDN original. A cluster of still more petals arranges itself on a removable belt providing the colorful transition between its lightly boned bodice and back slit column skirt.

Like a mountainside cascade, densely beaded tiers of ivory silk tumble one over the next until they gather in a small ruffled pool at your feet. Va Et Vien’s easily altered gown also features removable straps and a glamorous, bohemian vibe. Removable interior power net zip corset, bust cups, and boning for support. Column fit with some ease through hips.

Though fresh to our modern eye, this impeccably styled gown was inspired by a 1950’s dress Hitherto’s designer found in a Manhattan vintage shop. Its paneled corset top reinterprets a traditional sweetheart neckline, while its voluminous skirt is ornamented with vintage rhinestones and varying shades of grey bugle beads. The only thing missing is a fancy soiree amidst big-city lights. Bust cups and boning for support.
