There’s something about California. Its mix of glamour and ease. Its incomparable views. A fondness for big, once in a lifetime love stories. It’s these qualities that have inspired West Coast wanderlust for decades and that inspired BHLDN to spend “A Day in the Sun” shooting our Spring II collection at one of the most beautiful and glamorous locations in the Golden State. Built in the 1920’s, the Villa Sophia was once home to James Whale, director of cult-films like Frankenstein and Remember Last Night? With its lush gardens, poolside greenery and spectacular views of the downtown Los Angeles skyline, the Villa echoes the Old Hollywood feel of our Spring II collection.
It provides the perfect backdrop for model Alejandra Alonso to play, lounge and pose in our stunning new gowns and wedding accessories with a handsome beau by her side. Alejandra was the ideal model for this shoot as she perfectly captures the grace, sophistication, confidence and femininity that was characteristic of the leading ladies of the 1950′s and 60′s. From Marilyn Monroe to Grace Kelly, Brigitte Bardot and Sophia Loren, the elegance of such icons radiates from her bright smile and overall effortless beauty.
Shot by photographer Signe Vilstrup, the resulting imagery features 8 new wedding gowns that steal the show with extra fine lace, intricate beading and unique back details.
