Kelly Faetanini’s Spring 2022 Redux Collection is a stunning example of what we mean by wedding fashion that retains its old-world romance and storybook beauty, but also radiates with fresh, of-the-moment sensibilities and iconic design elements. It’s a true testament to and celebration of the 2020s bride and how bold and badass she really is.
With that last thought in mind, this is how Redux represents
Brides, if you’ve been out shopping recently, let us know how we’re tracking with this opinion. You’ve been out there looking for “the one,” but find yourself deciding between two dresses. One, perhaps, that feels like a departure from your traditional fashion direction, but that draws you in nevertheless, and the other, something that you immediately feel a connection with, something that’s familiar and unsurprising, something that you know you’ll slip into on your wedding day and feel safe, like you’re at home. Even though there’s an X-factor, a certain kind of magnetism and chemistry you have to the one, you opt for the other, because you know it’ll work for your wedding—for the people who come to see you and your partner tie the knot, for the place you’ve chosen to make your commitments, for the expectations you’ve always had echoing in your head about what you’d wear when you said ‘I do.’ Or, alternatively, you take a risk and choose the dress that’s “a bit out of your wheelhouse,” but that feels especially festive and stands out for such a special occasion in your life.
The intense back and forth and eventual decision making in favor of one of the dresses is totally normal and we’d be willing to bet that most brides experience that reality.
But the cool thing about Kelly Faetanini’s Redux Collection is this conception of style twins
“Surprising style twins are the essence of the Redux Collection, coined with a formal name and nickname. Fall in love with Renata and Ren’s billowy sleeves that rejuvenate the hallmark of the 80’s with a contemporary wide cuff and lace detail. Mila and Milania are punctuated with dainty 3D lace floral that adds to their captivating etherealness and romance. Avanna and Ava embody flirty sophistication adding a pinch of vintage vibe. The boldness of Isadora and Dora move from a fanciful feather ball gown to sensuous fit to flare. Lush, airy volume, and ladylike silhouettes underscore the balance found in Kelly Faetanini’s 2022 Spring Redux Collection. The splendor of details and array of colors will ignite a passion for retro romance.”
Here, you can let your personal style lead the way—be it in the direction of sleeves, asymmetrical necklines, plunging V-neck bodices, 3D lace floral details, etc.—and then once you’ve gravitated to a “look,” let the dress choose you instead of you choosing the dress, because it checks certain boxes.
Of course, for the bride who has razor-sharp persuasions, there are several silhouettes sure to please you, too! Charise, Ella, Kiah, Nyssa, Reign, and Zara, you’re fire.
Take a peek at some of our favorite Redux designs and what they come to play with (in so many words)
An unexpected twist on the classics, Dora is a bewitching fit-to-flare in crepe with an asymmetrical neckline. The long sleeve melded with the contrasting bare shoulder delivers unforgettable back drama. She’s available in Ivory and Black. Check out her style twin, Isadora.
Named after a fairy goddess, Ella is pure magic. Blooming in all-over 3D beaded floral lace, her ultra-feminine silhouette creates an inherently romantic vibe.
Retro romance ignites in Kiah with her feminine clean lines and delicate floral hemline.
Punctuated with dainty 3D lace floral, Milania has a captivating etherealness and romance in a ballgown silhouette. Check out her style twin, Mila.
Nyssa’s modified tulle A-line is an elegant design with beaded embroidery. Her scoop square neckline with straps is ultra on-trend, bringing back the flattering styles of the Renaissance era.
Reign rules the Redux Collection as the signature ombre gown for Spring 2022. A gorgeous tulle ball gown that is slightly modified as a slim silhouette. Her beaded lace beautifully contrasts to the blush ombre undertone framing a plunging V-illusion neckline on the detailed bodice.
Ren exudes elegance while embracing a girlish allure as the style twin to Renata. It’s impossible not to fall in love with her lacey puff sleeves that put a modern twist on a retro classic style. Her fit-to-flare silhouette has all-over beaded embroidery with a V-neckline.
Fabulous in flare, darling! Rosa with her beaded lace bodice, long sleeves and scoop neckline are anything but understated. The flattering design in a rich crepe amps up her sophistication. Check out her style twin, Rosalind.
Romantic and delicate, Zara has a hint of nostalgia with her corset-like seamed bodice and square neckline that gracefully move into a fit-to-flare silhouette. She’s available in crepe or stretch Mikado.
