Jesus Peiro 2018 Metropolis Collection

We're delighted to present the launch of the fantastic editorial images from the new Jesus Peiro 2018 Collection, 'Metropolis'.

The Jesus Peiro secret is designing wedding dresses that are recognisably bridal yet feature sharp details, exclusive Italian fabrics and edgy touches that make a bride feel at once classic and cool.

The 2018 Metropolis Collection channels the looks that Jesus Peiro has pioneered and that brides love. The sharp clean lines of collared dresses, the crisp cotton piqués, the signature pockets and the sheer lace overlays are all there to be adored.

The 2018 season collection didn’t disappoint; the Metropolis catwalk backdrop echoing the connection between modernist and art deco architecture and fashion. Coco Chanel is often quoted as saying “Fashion is architecture:  it is a matter of proportion” and Merché Segarra, the creative genius behind the collection, is one hell of an architect.

Soft fluid dresses get a graphic twist; the whimsical 8008 has swathes of tulle modernised by polka dots. The cloudy, romantic 8015 is sharpened by stripes within the lace.

The 8060 is made from a superb, graphic cotton lace. Geometric but soft, exquisitely cut, sexy in a modest way, using folksy fabric to dress a modern muse it is a mass of contradictions. The effect is breath taking and we feel sure that British brides are going to fall for it.

Unique to the 2017 collection and showing strongly in the 2018 collections is the firm, fitted high waist cummerbund. Leg lengthening, waist defining and bust enhancing, yet easy to wear, and without the restrictions of a traditional corset dress this can be seen in dramatic remakes of silhouettes like the 8004; lace and taffeta reimagined. The feature is used in the uber minimal 8002 with the illusion of a suspended skirt right through to elegant city crepe styles like 8040.

For a quintessential British church wedding replete with a marquee, striped sweeping lawns & cut glass accents, the Luxe Bride team loves 8032. Textured fabric modernises the classic boat neck and box pleated skirt and the signature Jesus Peiro flourish-of-a-bow softens the strict lines.

New features like tiny baby-doll sleeves breathe new life into the formulaic cap sleeve: cool coverage for that top arm area that brides get so anxious about. Merché has added this to 8070 which also has the high waist, classic tulip skirt and dramatic back detail. Short haul, destination brides wanting to wander barefoot on beaches will adore 8044, 8058, 8061, or 8075. Romantic tiered skirts and off the shoulder necklines take inspiration from 70s icons like Stevie Nicks, Angelica Huston & Bianca Jagger.

Brides loving modern oak barn venues, like Millbridge Court that hosted the Luxe Bride team for the inaugural lookbook shoot, will love the 8064. It is the epitome of modern relaxed style. Opaque chiffon, a fluid flattering skirt and a cold shoulder brings daywear trends in to big day wear. Fans of the halter collared signature Jesus Peiro look will love its revised 2018 dresses. Both 8007 and 8039 bring new ways to wear one the brands favourite looks.

There are two standout dresses for the Luxe Bride team. The first is the exuberant, gravity-defying, ruffled 8042. In cotton pique, a matt fabric that gives big skirts a fresh modernity, the dress harnesses the heart of a Flamenco dancer and the soul of a new romantic. This is certainly not for the faint hearted but for the bold head-turning bride.

British boutiques love working with Jesus Peiro for their truly customer focused ethos. Old fashioned notions of extremely long order times are cast aside for responsive deliveries meeting the demands of a 21st century bride that would like to plan a wedding in months not years.

Jesus Peiro has been awarded the OEC Seal. This involves the company’s whole processes from start to finish; from research and development, raw materials, components & logistics, being audited by external specialists. Both brides and boutiques can vow that their dress are authentically and solely of Spanish origin. Jesus Peiro is currently the only Spanish wedding brand with such a distinguished and ethical accreditation.

It’s possible, indeed likely, that Jesus Peiro’s working practises won’t be the first thing on a bride to be’s mind when falling in love with their dresses. How lovely to know, though, that conscious, couture style is at the heart of the Metropolis collection
