Peter Copping hoped to work with Oscar de la Renta, but it seems to have not been destined to be that way. Copping was hired as the Artistic Director of the luxury label, and de la Renta passed away due to cancer in a few days. He presented his first collection at the New York Fashion Week in February, and a couple of months later the brand de la Renta has come up with its first bridal lineup. Notably, this is claimed to be a big occasion for the luxury label as the high profile brides such as Amal Clooney are the price targets of this brand that has been launched after the death of the designer.
The bridal collection from Copping retained a lot of the classic feel of de la Renta’s glamour that is due to the presence of lots of organza and tulle along with a few contemporary silhouettes. There are new takes on the fabric work and the use of silvery sequins as well. The most versatile look of the bridal collection is a white tiered ball gown in tulle featuring two layers at the bottom that are removable. This will form a stylish mini dress that can be worn on while dancing at the night.
The bridal collection included a taffeta ball gown in a while that features laced floral bodice. Also, there was a faille cocktail dress make of white silk that had a sculptural skirt with dotted embroidery of organza floral designs. The primary bridal collection from Copping featured 23 marriage dresses and also girls’ dresses with three flowers. These were both directional and timeless as well. Peter Copping also sent the ivory version of the Oscar dress of Sienna Miller from the ready to wear Fall/Winter 2015 collection on the stage. The Chantilly gown made of lace that is embellished with sequin and crystal embroidery will definitely be a massive hit.
After the debut of the first bridal collection of Copping, the designer revealed details regarding the following of Oscar’s footsteps. Well, it is evident as he has come up with an entire collection of designs in white. He also told about the iconic women inspiration in his work. Notably, Copping shares the bridal aesthetic of Oscar while designing a collection that reflects the unique design and eye sensibility. The designer has started designing his bridal collection by focusing on a variety of brides. He explained that Oscar de la Renta has a strong bridal collection heritage.
