Cotton Bride, something new for your lifestyle
Feb '08
With Valentine's Day just behind us, the wedding planning frenzy is undoubtedly underway for countless newly-engaged couples across the country. Blushing brides-to-be still swooning from their Valentine's Day proposals will be in for a delightful surprise with Chris Kole's fresh, modern and sophisticated couture bridal line simply called The Cotton Bride. As its name suggests, The Cotton Bride features 19 hand-draped, hand-sewn gowns constructed with fabric woven from the most magnificent natural fibers, including cotton and linen.

As with the Chris Kole Couture line of eveningwear and special occasion dresses, The Cotton Bride collection will be produced at the Chris Kole Studio in New York. But, unlike the richly-hued silk taffetas and intricately embroidered laces which characterize his evening label, the new bridal collection is cool, light and relaxed – much like the bride who wears it.

“The purity, airiness and ease of the fabrics we use in the collection are especially well-suited for today's modern bride,” says Chris Kole. The collection boasts a number of unusual batistes, organzas, piques, georgettes and jacquards in a range of silhouettes - from feather-light and subtly-beaded T-length gowns with gathered skirts, to breezier, less constructed pieces perfect for the increasingly popular destination and outdoor or summer wedding.

Kole believes the time is right for The Cotton Bride collection. “There's a growing niche in the bridal market for simplicity, in that many young women today are not comfortable wearing an overly elaborate gown,” explains the designer. “Instead, they are looking for something that is statement-making yet more reflective of their lifestyle, values and priorities.” For women like these, The Cotton Bride collection is a much-anticipated breath of fresh air.

Over the last 25 years, the Chris Kole label has become one of the most respected names in the ready-to-wear and custom Evening & Special Occasion market. All garments in the Chris Kole Couture and The Cotton Bride collections are made by hand and can be special ordered in North America through Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and specialty boutiques throughout the United States and Canada.
