If we've learned anything about modern wedding style, it's that pushing the boundaries is more than encouraged—and that's where Eugenia Kim's Bridal Collection comes in. Spearheaded by seasoned milliner Eugenia Kim, who boasts 20 years of industry experience, the newly launched namesake line caters to nontraditional to-be-weds looking to make a headwear statement with more than just a veil. Kim, a future bride herself, aimed to satisfy the demand for unique, ready-to-wear wedding accessories with her debut bridal capsule.
"As I’m getting married soon, I was doing my own research on bridal wear and I wasn’t finding pieces that suited my personality," Kim explains. "Around the same time, I was asked by a close friend to design custom pieces for both her and her entire wedding party, so I knew there were other brides-to-be out there who weren’t finding what they needed from traditional bridal accessories designers. So I decided to just fill that place in the market myself!"
And fill in the gap she most certainly did—the 16-piece line infuses the designer's signature styles with whimsical and feminine vibes for a spot-on "something new, something old" embodiment. Think everything from leather berets to 3D, floor-length bows and headbands. The New York–based designer relies on silk and tulle materials to coincide with the collection's nuptial allure, as well as straw and felt for more low-key looks. Plus, the headgear goes just beyond the big day. Kim also created sun hats, visors, fedoras, and more for brides to sport everywhere from the honeymoon to the bridal shower.
Currently you can shop the collection for presale on the brand's website, with prices ranging from $145 to $1,995.
