If you wish you’d got the chance to dance around Studio 54, you’re going to fall hard for the Spanish label’s latest styles
Some little girls never grow out of the big-white-dress dream, which makes shopping for their wedding gown sheer joy. For others, being hoisted into a ballgown or strapped into a a skintight bodice and trumpet skirt is enough to have you running off to Vegas to get hitched in a cap, crop top and jeans (S/O to 2004 Britney).
If you’re more ‘shake your tail’ than fishtail, then prepare to come over all OMG at Otaduy’s latest collection ‘I Do’. Its nod to the carefree-yet-chic disco era is the perfect fusion of glamour and personality.
The label is proudly influenced by music and art – dresses from previous collections have been called ALTJ, Major Lazer, Pulp and Morrissey – but I Do has name-dropped some seriously iconic women for its diverse pieces.
Fringed separates, bat sleeves, tailored trousers, boho silk shift dresses all stand out from the new collection, but the crowning glory is the update on the brand’s bridal silk bomber: a white leather jacket with ‘I Do’ embroidered on the back. Will some of your more ‘traditional’ guests be horrified? Yes. Is that the best part? Yup!
Founder Carolina Otaduy’s approach to bridalwear is inspirational: “You can wear whatever you want: a white dress and leather boots, or plaits and a flower crown. You can wear satin or a lacy dress, an open-backed dress or black nail varnish. It is your day. You make the rules.”
Ayr boutique Unbridaled is the exclusive Scottish stockist of the label. Owner Emily Plunkett loves the ethos of the brand as much as we do: “When you read their mantra you realise that they are creating more than just a wedding dress. It’s an expression of love and everything free and wild. And being true to yourself.”
Keep an eye on Unbridaled’s Facebook page for an upcoming trunk show for the collection, planned for November.
