‘An Earthly Paradise’ by Claire Pettibone, her new collection for 2013, inspired by the many paintings of Victorian-era artist Sir Lawrence Alma Tadema for brides who love to shine!
This collection is art in itself, colour, texture, pure beauty that is simply stunning!
Claire says “I pinned many of his (the artists) lovely images to my walls, studied the titles of his pieces to name the dresses…I have an Alma, a Laurence, and a Devotion in the mix”
So, the collection? Well let’s be brutal here, not every bride will want a Claire Pettibone. She will be unsure about the colour, the Bohemia feel which they radiate, unsure if its ‘wedding enough’, unsure if it will suit her, can she be that ‘statement’….
Our response? You just have to try… Take the risk, be brave, embrace the beauty that is a Claire Pettibone gown. Swim in the colours, play with the luxurious silks, get lost in the embroidery, wow with the cut.
The White Room LOVE Claire’s gowns! I fell in love with one when I was looking in 2008 for my gown, but there were little number of stockists in the UK.. Claire still has very much an intimate presence in the UK, resulting in exclusivity and uniqueness. Who wants to wear the same as every other bride anyway?
‘An Earthly Paradise’ collection by Claire is just another great addition to her already strong collections. So every season, I am just so excited and wonderfully inspired to see what she has dreamed up for our new brides and the forthcoming season. Her collection are always wonderfully imaginative and beautifully poetic. transporting you to a land of the modern goddess.
The new collection is as ever, celebrating the female silhouette beneath sheer dresses with sheath overlays, cutaway backs all with a bohemian undertone that would be dreamy for the perfect British wedding.
