For the truly romantic and Bohemian at heart, look no further than the Claire Pettibone collection. Pettibone has been whipping up silky, lacy, antiqued confections for years and each season she adds something new, something old and perhaps something blue.
Inspired by the wild times and free spirit of her grandmother and old family heirlooms, Pettibone packs some punch into her tiny collection of eight beautiful dresses. Working with vintage floral tapestry ribbons and golden Guipure lace, these dresses possess a charming mix of fabrics that show her true artistic hand.
Long sleeves might keep the limbs covered, but be prepared to bare your décolletage and back with deep, sexy cuts. Scalloped edges and see-through fabrics add mystery and dimension to these dresses.
Pettiboneʼs signature lingerie style adds gobs of femininity to each look. The Hazel dress has a playful, layered short to long overskirt of powder blue and platinum silk lace, its shoulders draped with a lacy scalloped shawl. The touch of cotton (a signature fabric) in the Grace and Waverly gowns is totally unique and adds to the old-world feel of her pieces. Eloquence was our favorite; the gold eyelash lace column. A superbly sexy gown for a new, gilded age.
