Temperley – Luna
Adding to our showcase of pearl detailing, we present the enchanting ‘Luna Dress’ from Temperley. Evoking a sense of 1970s charm, Luna couples romance and exquisite detailing in a silhouette that is as captivating as it is timeless.
In a masterful display of craftsmanship, the bodice features hand-embellished and embroidered sheer tulle that is a testament to the meticulous attention to detail that defines Temperley. Complementing this, the silk chiffon sleeves and skirt lend a dreamy, ethereal quality to the dress that perfectly embodies the spirit of the modern romantic bride.
The Luna Dress’s unique appeal lies in its intricate stitched artwork, a blend of palm leaves, scallop lace details, and stylised tulips inspired by late 19th-century Art Nouveau Iznik. This composition is accentuated by broderie Anglaise cutwork and pearl embellishment, which trace the tessellating leaves. Rows of pearls thoughtfully align the waist and neckline, framing the artwork and defining the fitted bodice.
True to the spirit of the modern bride, the Luna Dress offers a fresh perspective on bridal fashion, proving that pearls are far from dated. With its unapologetic celebration of femininity and romance, the Luna Dress takes pearl detailing to new heights. As we continue our journey into the world of pearl-infused bridal trends, brace yourself for more captivating designs.
Victoria Percival – Elodie Crown
As we delve deeper into the world of pearl detailing, we can’t ignore the stunning work of accessory designer Victoria Percival, whose creations can add a regal touch to your bridal ensemble. Introducing the ‘Elodie Crown’, a meticulously handcrafted piece that offers an intricate mix of celestial elements to help you and your bridal party shine on your special day.
The Elodie Crown is an enchanting blend of cubic zirconia stars that sparkle brilliantly, nestled amongst luxurious crystal pearls. This constellation is further adorned with faceted cut glass crystals, culminating in sweeping crystal branches that give this crown its distinct, majestic charm.
Each crown is handcrafted by Victoria and her team, ensuring that each piece possesses a unique character. The crown’s beautifully organic shaping lends it a contemporary yet timeless feel, making it a perfect fit for brides who appreciate classic elegance with a modern twist.
The Elodie Crown is more than just an accessory – it’s a statement piece that effortlessly brings the pearl detailing trend to life, while also embodying Victoria Percival’s commitment to creating pieces that are as unique as the brides who wear them.
Dolecka – Clementine Crown
Our pearl detailing journey draws to a close with an extraordinary creation by Dolecka – the ‘Clementine Crown’. This accessory embodies the essence of this trend with its hand-beaded pearl and crystal headband, reinforcing the idea that your bridal look is not just about the gown – it extends to your choice of accessories too.
The Clementine Crown is an individual masterpiece, each one crafted by hand and unique in its own right. It’s not merely an accessory but a statement piece that integrates seamlessly with your bridal ensemble. This sentiment resonates with Dolecka’s belief that your veil and headpiece should never be an afterthought – they are as integral to your bridal look as the dress itself.
Their crowns and veils are meticulously crafted using only the finest materials. The Clementine Crown, like all of Dolecka’s creations, is a luxury accessory designed to make you feel nothing short of incredible on your special day.
