NEW ARRIVALS DESIGNER PROFILE: CALLA BLANCHE & L'AMOUR
Calla Blanche is a fairly new designer, having only 4 seasons thus far. When we first saw this designer at Market back in April we were immediately drawn to the unique lace patterns, sexy details, and stunning silhouettes. L'Amour is a branch of Calla Blanche that is even "younger" with only having one season that debuted this year.
The philosophy behind Calla Blanche is taking a fashion-forward approach to creating unique wedding dresses. There not so basic dresses are still rooted in tradition. They strive to create wedding dresses that don't look like the millions of other wedding dresses that we've seen before. It is important that each bride finds a dress that truly reflects her unique personality.
As you view their dresses, you will see that they are not afraid to apply new and inventive elements to classic designs. This includes non-traditional colors, diverse textures, and numerous types of luxurious fabrics and textiles.
First up for our new arrivals is this dreamy L'Amour tulle ballgown that is truly a dream come true. The v-neck with a thin spaghetti strap will show case the brides neckline and elongate the torso. Lace wrapped in soft tulle give the dress a soft, etherial touch. This amazing tulle handkerchief skirt is sprayed with fine glitter throughout the top few layers giving it depth and dimension. Lastly the low back gives a little sexiness without going over the top.
Next up is a Calla Blanche design. This beauty is quickly becoming a favorite of Luxe Brides! The soft a-line silhouette is made new with the beautiful lace motif cascading down the skirt from the waistline all the way to the end of the stunning train. The bodice is scattered with the same beautiful lace. A plunging neck line stays secure with the addition of a soft illusion netting that is contrasted with an open back. Our favorite feature of this dress is the stunning train that glides effortlessly behind you!
This Calla Blanche beauty is adored with delicate floral embroidery cascading down the dress from the tops of the shoulders all the way to the edge of the train. A deep illusion neckline compliments the fullness of the skirt and the jeweled belt that is built right in helps to accentuate and slim the waistline.
This L'Amour dress is where simplicity meets sexy. The soft a-line chiffon skirt is off set by the sheer illusion bodice. Clear sequins and a modern lace pattern work hand in hand to bring all of the attention up the brides face. This top gives you the look of a strapless dress with the security that it will not go anywhere. Although this dress is more simple the long train gives it just enough drama!
The last new arrival from Calla Blanche will leave your wedding guests in awe. The see through bodice is covered in white beads, pearls, and clear crystals. Throughout the dress there is a delicate lace topped with scattered appliques and intricate embroidery, making this dress multi dimensional. The finished edging on the train ties everything together and adds another element that makes this dress so unique.
