The Story Of.: The antithesis of minimal, yet complete with a sense of understated grandeur, Volume Drama makes a modern impact with fuller than life silhouettes and plentiful texture play. After seasons of cancelled plans, now’s the time to indulge with extravagance and high drama, don’t shy away from the ethos that ‘more is more’ – here, these rules most certainly apply.
The Fashion: Oversized silhouettes are central to the theme. Sleeves that balloon and billow and shapes that trapeze away from the body are core. Balance proportions with a slither of shoulder, a corseted waistline or a mini silhouette. Opt for simple satins or cottons that allow looks, structure and an air of simplicity in turn. NEWHITE Bridal offers a masterful take on the ruffle, while The Law and Christie Nicole are go-to’s for cloud-like volume. Shop their collections at this summer’s upcoming trunk shows.
The Florist: Full, textural blooms are on the brief for this aesthetic. Pin the sculptural arrangements of Doctor Cooper on your moodboard. Look to full-bodied flowers like hydrangeas, peonies or classic roses to compliment the theme.
