A Preview of Trends
As part of an initial trends preview, in 2013 we will once again observe the leading role that has been granted to the romantic bride, although this approach will be accompanied by a series of audacious, fun and surprising touches, especially in relation to accessories and complements that are designed to accompany the dress. Materials such as wild silk, muslin, mikado and organza will envelop the figure, being enriched with delicate crystal, pearls and embroidery applications, based on a unique finish. As far as colours are concerned, ivory, natural shades and everlasting white will be accompanied by more intense shades such as green, red, blue and even black.
Morning suits and tuxedoes will dominate the bridegroom collections. This classic and sober style will also include a series of new features, such as visible stitching, colourful details and even designs in shades such as pearl, beige and indigo blue.
With regard to First Communion, bridesmaid and page attire, girls will follow the trend laid down by the bride, being offered a series of dresses of romantic style that have been created especially to allow them to enjoy their big day. In this case, lengths will rise slightly in order to reveal the ankle or will settle just below the knee, whilst sleeves will also be shortened. Tulle, pleating, blonde lace and embroidery will continue to feature prominently, as will ribbons, casing effects and hand-finished hemstitching. For their part, boys will have their own range of new ideas, based on the traditional sailor suit format.
