Exclusive RIXO Bridal capsule launches for Browns Fashion

Fabled for a full circle approach to design, RIXO has become a cherished label by those far and wide due to its inspired ability to add fresh nuance to archival design. 

Often looking to the aesthetic sensibilities of the past, it has become synonymous with a sense of ‘once upon a time,’ evoking the same self-sufficient feeling as that of finding a hidden treasure in a flea market or vintage boutique.

And, just like Aesop’s Fables, the London-based brand has now launched another addition to its series of sartorial tales – having made an official debut in the field of bridalwear. 

Animated with the allegory of old school glamour and cinematic romance, RIXO Bride is a treasure trove of antique-style designs which form a faintly familiar (yet still remarkable) narrative of tried-and-true classics. 

As though forming a historical design textbook, the collection traces back archetypal bridalwear from the last century – with stand-out pieces including 1940’s silhouettes with gathered busts and puddle trains (such as the Natalia), feathered ‘60s shift styles (the Candice), easy-breezy tasselled numbers which look to the ‘barefoot and unbothered’ nature of the ‘70s (the Allegra) and broderie anglaise creations which call on Prairie design sensibilities (the Ciara).

The collection is realised through a tactile assembly of fabrics, from ornate embossed jacquard to feather-hemmed raw silk, offering another extensive aspect to its eclectic, gathered-from-across-the-globe aesthetic. 

And whilst the collection is a quintessential adaptation of the love stories from many moons ago, it is still threaded with RIXO’s unmistakable modernity – forming an escape route from the speedy world of trend-based design through both the power of the past and the future of fashion.

Available directly from the label or via Browns Fashion, one thing is for sure – RIXO has redefined bridalwear through its (albeit contradictory) balance of tradition and tomorrow.
