“It was real bohemian gypsy inspiration,” said Katharine Polk as her spring bridal presentation got under way with an eclectic cast of models lounging on Mongolian fur pillows, Moroccan poufs and Persian-style area rugs. “It’s the most production we’ve ever done.”
The collection had a cool, casual air with plenty of looks for an alternative bride, including printed dresses — something uncommon in the bridal arena — and separates. Polk captured the boho-chic mood in the details, from flowing cap- and bell-sleeve blouses to fringe-hemmed gowns, topped off with Mongolian fur boleros and suede tunics. A few men’s wear options, a new category for Polk, were also scattered throughout the collection. Though most of the looks would befit a laid-back wedding, a few styles — such as a silver sequined tunic dress — channeled a dressier, flapper-era glam.
