Excited to be launching our new couture collection at the New York Bridal Fashion Week and the Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week, we ecstatically present you the Victorian Affinity collection.
It is inspired, first and foremost, by our ‘Victorian Affair’ evening couture collection presented last January at the Paris Couture Fashion Week, the outstanding Victorian era in England and its parallel phase in France, “Le Belle Epoque”. These periods were characterized by changes and innovations in various fields, such as the Industrial Revolution. The day to day atmosphere was recognized with optimism, and so we added our touch of romance and admiration to the feminine body. We dedicate this collection to Jeanne Margaine Lacroix, a designer that challenged the victorian style, in its era and, made a change of how we perceive femininity. A bridal gown should be treated and fitted with love and care, as carried on a bride on her wedding day, and so we bring you our perception of it. Our Victorian affinity.
You’ll find delicately textured laces, deep colored backgrounds, careful attention to details and an atmosphere of ‘sheerness against substantial elements of lace’. Alongside varied Victorian motifs, such as high collars that draw the eyes to the collar bones, you’ll notice dramatic Victorian capes and sleeves (which are also detachable). In this special collection, we put great emphasis on games of volume in one garment, creating chimeric silhouettes and endless trains. The color palette is of porcelain ivory, dusted silver, washed pinks, smoky blush and cream that completes the touch of this collection.
As you can see, the collection is vintage and traditional, yet sexy and romantic. We are presenting a whole new and unique collection, without losing our signature in wedding gowns such as sexiness, open backs and necklines, and always putting a great effort and emphasis on the amazing details. As well, we included sparkles in several ways in our gowns knowing how women like to shine on their special day, including a gown with 280 Swarovskis on it.
