Halcyon Days - 2018 Collection
In case you missed the news, the other week we released our second Vow by Prea James bridal collection, Halcyon Days!
Featuring soft feminine silhouettes in a mixture of bold and delicate laces as well as our signature 100% silk wedding dresses like Nadia, Alexa and Eleonora.
Always inspired by music, architecture, nature and the essence of the modern woman… now more then ever, she is so powerful and exudes a level of confidence that can only come from being truly comfortable with who she is.
There is so much understated beauty in her relaxed style, which celebrates the female body and doesn’t hide it… that is the essence of Halcyon Days.
Take a look below at the whole collection with a detailed description of each wedding gown x x
The Alessandra gown is made from an intricate and detailed Ivory Guipure lace with a mushroom colour lining. Featuring a square high neckline at the front and rouleau straps that lead to a lowered back.
The top is pleated at the waist creating a chic peplum, which sits over the fitted skirt that flares slightly below the hip leading to the beautiful scalloped hemline and delicate train.
The shorter lining and open back make it perfect for summer weddings.
The Lia gown features a bold cut out lace design on a structured bustier bodice, with and invisible zip giving it a clean line at the back.
The skirt is fitted over the hip and flares from just below the hip leading to a medium sized train that shows off the detail in the lace design.
Designed for our confident brides who want to make a statement on their wedding day while wearing a flattering silhouette with a quality fit.
The Isobel wedding gown is made from the finest French Chantilly lace in a scallop design with a very light metallic look, giving it a beautiful sheen, which illuminates the detail of the lace design.
This wedding dress features a low V-neck that narrows down to soft gathers under the bust, a relaxed skirt that drapes over the hip and billowing bell sleeves. All joined with French seams and tulle binds to finish off the edges.
Styled without a slip here, we encourage brides to be a little risky with Isobel - it could be worn with a nude slip, full length or short, or some high waisted underwear and a beautiful bralette. For a more modest look it can be worn with our Ella slip dress.
The Chloe gown is made from a beautiful French Chantilly spot lace that has a fluid drape. Two layers of lightweight silk, cut on the bias sit under the delicate lace, creating a very flattering silhouette.
The thick silk straps cross over at the CF high neckline and continuing over the shoulder meeting again at the CB, creating feminine, flattering lines. Chloe is finished with a long train at the back that trails delicately along the ground.
The Chloe wedding dress is so beautiful and light making it perfect for weddings in the warmer months. Worn by our nonchalant brides who want something romantic and high quality with that chic Parisian look.
The Nadia wedding gown is for our minimalist brides who want something elegant and timeless but with a modern touch. In our signature 100% silk faille with silk satin lining, the Nadia features a high square neckline at the front that is shaped over the bust and lowers to the middle of the back. A strapless bra can be worn with the Nadia gown too as the back isn't too low.
The strap detail at the back gives this minimalist gown a modern point of difference. The skirt hugs the hips lightly and the beautiful drape of the silk falls from there... giving prominence to the extended train.
The Alexa wedding gown in 100% silk features a structured bustier bodice, fully boned to give incredible support with a modern lowered neckline for our sultry brides.
The skirt features a CF split with a cascading ruffle, that leads to a slightly cropped front and medium size train at the back giving the Alexa gown a very modern and feminine aesthetic.
The Lucy wedding gown is made from an entirely beaded fabric, with very soft pink beads and some scattered silver beads on a very light pink mesh. Lined with a single layer of nude illusion tulle, the weight of the beaded fabric falls so beautifully and hugs the body in all the right places.
The high front neckline sweeps around to a slightly lowered back, with a folded drape from the CF to the side seams along the neckline.
Two straps meeting at the CF lead over the shoulders and meet at the CB.
The Lucy gown is definitely for our brides who dare to be different - pulling away from tradition and wearing something that will turn heads for all the right reasons.
Can be worn with a nude buster underneath for our more daring brides but is also available with an opaque nude lining option. If you would like more information on this option then please contact us and we would be more than happy to help.
The Eleonora wedding gown is for the fashion forward bride, who wants something simple yet striking. The front neckline has a soft drape that crosses over at the CF, creating a deep V neckline. The skirt hugs the hips lightly and falls down to an extended train at the back.
The back has a rouleau loop and covered button at the top, with a keyhole opening that lowers down to another 5 covered buttons and an invisible zip. The fitted sleeve with an oversize bell cuff gives the Eleonora gown a high fashion look.
