Match made! Giovanna Randall, the designer responsible for dreaming up Honor’s whimsical designs (case in point: her spring 2015 collection saw neon accents that were reminiscent of Candy Buttons) has teamed up with Molly Guy, the creative director of Stone Fox Bride, to deliver a seven-piece bridal capsule collection that's unlike any other.
"[Our collection] is beautiful, unique, haunted and enchanted," Guy tells InStyle. "We're not here trying to candy coat the ritual around marriage. There's something a little dark and moody to the dresses."
"It doesn't have as many rules and conventions, and I think that's what separates us," Randall chimes in. "It's experimental, but not to the point where it's unwearable. Our dresses are wearable and real."
Named after ladies close to their hearts, the collection includes "the Mabel," a beautiful strapless bustier gown with an organza overlay sprinkled all over with laser-cut flowers, "the Astrid," a structured silk faille open-back crop top and a full ball gown skirt, and "the Leith," a flirty absent-collar knee-length frock. And each is the result of a perfect marriage between the two brands aesthetics: Stone Fox Bride's etherealness and Boho-chic spirit and Honor's fantastical-yet-structured pieces.
And what was it like working together? "A marriage," they cheekily answered in unison, just like their wedded brands. Even though they've butted heads (all part of the creative process, they insist), it's clear that they live on the same wavelength and share the same vision—a vision that has finally come to fruition after meeting at Randall's Honor fall 2012 show once upon a time.
Eventually though, the discussion turned to what they each wore on their wedding day. Guy tied the knot in Temperley Bridal, and Randall wore a vintage-inspired Reem Acra dress with an underlayer of blue tulle. "Oh, that's pretty—we should do something blue," Guy suggests, thinking aloud.
Will this be an ongoing collaboration? Could this be the start of a second bridal collection? "Maybe next year," they replied, once again, in unison.
