From vintage lace, to sexy but timeless silhouettes, this particular collection it pure perfection. The full spread can be seen right here and if you’re lucky enough to be in New York for Market, Claire Pettibone’s show is a must-see.
From Claire Pettibone… My grandmother was quite the 1920’s bohemian… Her first husband was a rum-runner during prohibition, and was mysteriously killed in a “motorcycle” accident. She never talked about him, and I was a grown woman when my mom shared the scandal that my grandpa (her father) was not grandma’s first love. I’ve been thinking about Anna Mae, and looking at the photos of her second wedding that we all thought was her first. She wore a beautiful, mauve, scalloped silk dress with a velvet sash at the hip, round spectacles and stylish mary janes. Grandma has long passed, but I have her wedding dress, the intricate embroidered linens she made by hand, her gold rimmed china with delicate painted roses … and a good dose of her free spirit. The sweet and simple details of our heirlooms: lace linens, golden lockets, fine china — don’t they make lovely inspiration for a wedding dress?
