WANDERLUST - THE 2018/2019 COLLECTION FROM KATYA KATYA LONDON


Last week, as part of London Bridal Fashion Week, I was invited to the launch of Wanderlust, the stunning new collection from KATYA KATYA LONDON.

I have long been a fan of KATYA KATYA'S vintage inspired boho designs, which are both beautifully feminine and effortlessly cool, and this new collection is absolutely the brand’s strongest yet. I was genuinely blown away by the beauty and craftsmanship of every single piece and I’m thrilled to be sharing the full collection with you today. I would say that the designs are even more beautiful in the flesh, so I would urge you to book an appointment at the gorgeous KATYA KATYA flagship boutique in Chelsea or one of the stockists listed at the bottom of this post to try them on for yourself.



For those who haven’t yet discovered it, KATYA KATYA is a London based bridal brand which launched in 2007 when childhood friends Katya Shehurina and Marina Kvasova, originally from Latvia, decided to start a business together. They share a love of fashion, and with Katya graduating in the craft of couture from the prestigious ESMOD fashion design school and Marina having gained vast experience in business and brand management, they formed the perfect bridal dream team. Together they have created a unique design style which reflects a modern bohemian inspired aesthetic, impeccable craftsmanship and a lightweight ethereal finish. They opened their first flagship boutique in 2011 and the brand has continued to grow from strength to strength.


KATYA KATYA describe their style as ‘modern bohemian’ and aim to create beautifully crafted made-to-order garments which combine versatility, comfort and timeless elegance. Using opulent French lace, Italian silk, gentle colours and hand-embellished details, KATYA KATYA gowns epitomise feminine, boho-luxe bridal style.



The 2018/2019 collection is called Wanderlust and KATYA KATYA say that "inspired by the desire to wander on life journeys with your loved one, the Wanderlust collection is both dreamy and decadent. These elegant designs take you on a voyage of lifetime love, transporting you to a place of spellbinding beauty.”


Wanderlust includes signature designs from past collections, which have been updated with a wider range of lace and crafted details. The finest tulles, silks and laces give this collection a cool, timeless feel, with a chic luxe edge. Intricate embroidery, illuminating pearls and Swarovski pearls add sophisticated touches which create the ultimate fantasy wedding dresses.



While KATYA KATYA designs are all about ethereal femininity, they are also designed with comfort, practicality and versatility in mind, and they encourage brides to let their own personality shine through. A signature KATYA KATYA feature is the concept of different coloured silk slips underneath lace gowns. You can either choose the colour you prefer or have a couple of options and take your dress from ceremony to reception just by changing your slip. To take this versatility even further, in this new collection KATYA KATYA have added their first range of bridal separates. Four tops and four skirts can all be mixed and matched to create a truly unique wedding look – a concept I absolutely love and I can vouch for the incredible beauty and quality of every piece.



I’m delighted to be sharing the full Wanderlust collection with you – it’s in store this month and RRP prices range from £1500 - £3500. If you’re looking for a vintage-inspired boho-luxe wedding dress, you should definitely book an appointment at the beautiful Chelsea flagship boutique, or you can also find KATYA KATYA designs in the following UK bridal boutiques –
