We went inside the
atelier, where the magic happens, to discover the secrets of the dreamy dresses
from our La Mariée Spring 24 collection. Come along on our atelier tour back a few days
before the reveal of our ‘Wildlife Gems’ brides collection.
Roses petals, endless leaves patterns
and shimmers of precious stones, the collection is an ode to nature. We begin
our tour with the ‘Origin’ dress. The corset is embroidered with 3D clusters of
flowers, ‘they remind me of the jasmines of my childhood’ says the head of
atelier. The corsage has a visible boning and playful transparencies, and the
flowers lusciously cascade down the dress.
We are mesmerized by the sparkle of
the Vetiver dress. On a table, a couturière is meticulously embroidering layer upon layer of sequins and
crystals on a flora inspired bustier. ‘It has been three weeks already
of working on this dress, and it will be another week until we are done.’ The
dress is a playful mix of organza and tulle in a creamy white, lightly golden, unique
shade created by the savvy tricks of the atelier magicians.
We come upon the Olea dress, a golden
greige shade coated in scintillating silver. Our eyes are captured by the ethereal
hoodie veil with its beaded drops and delicate sleeves that the bride can
remove when the wedding party begins, and a voluptuous overskirt.
couturier is working on
the Secret gown, embroidering glitters on a 3D bustier, the trick, we are told,
is giving structure to layers of soft silk. The silhouette is also particular, with
its dropped waist, the gown is intended to flatter a lady’s figure, ‘this creative
touch is found across some of the dresses from the Wildlife Gems collection’.
Our atelier tour is over, the twinkles
in our eyes are everlasting. Bejeweled bridal gowns inspired by nature’s wonders; wildflowers
shimmering on majestic volumes, beads stitched into diamond shapes, 3D floral embroidered
corsets and the structured tenderness of silk and organza.
