Fashion For the Fairytale Lovers! See Womenswear Brand IKPEN’s Enchanting Collection

Published

 on

Simple, intricate and modern are some of the obvious qualities of the brand IKPEN, focused almost exclusively on occasion wear and bridal dresses for her debut collection (not forgetting her 10 years in the industry running the sister brand Ik-pen, known for her uniquely affordable but luxe ready-to-wear pieces).

The collection is filled with couture-worthy creations of silk and tulle, encrusted with gold and silver beads. Some of the most seductive gowns were downplayed for daylight with delicious bead work and wool coats, curve showing dresses, 70’s pants and her signature bridal aesthetic. The colours where picked carefully with women in mind and not trends. The setting of the shoot is very natural and fresh but still leaves the bride to be with something enchanting to remember, without distracting her from the clothes. See the photos below.

    For real though, the only thing close to “fairytale” ; with these images, is the location.

    Nice pieces, but they do not evoke the idea of being ethereal or fairytale/fantasy-like….

    Well if you are waiting to see Snow White or a Sleeping beauty before you classify this as a fairytale then you are on a long thing.

    I agree the theme is a bit forced. Like that “Fog” that is clearly just smoke and looks like the forest is burning down. It takes away from the pieces

    This collection has potential..well the brand actually.
    A couple of pieces could have been left off cause they were totally unnecessary. Also, is it just me, or did it feel like we were looking at two different collections?
    Cause I can’t seem to marry the first set of photos, and the second set (the eleborate dresses) together.
    But yeah, I’ve got my eyes on this label.
