#Inspiration - Lace
Lace, what an inspirational and clever French brand if you want to let your imagination roam while creating your wedding dress!
The name of the French brand “Lace” speaks for itself. It is both a noble material and a thread that binds together two elements, just as the wedding binds two partners for life.
It also illustrates the brand’s signature: an invisible zipper, around the waist, between a top and a long skirt chosen by the bride-to-be to shape her wedding dress. When her choice is made, the bride-to-be has only to let her imagination roam to adapt and customize the dress with the designer’s advice and talent. As Emmanuelle, the designer, says, this customization is a kind of secret, the beginning of a personal legend…
Emmanuelle’s creations, which are designed in her Parisian workshop, are clever as well. After opening the ball, the bride can replace – thanks to the zipper - her long skirt by a short one to dance freely all night long. And when the big day is over, the dress can be converted into a baptism dress and/or a small cover for a baby. Emmanuelle is happy to give a second life to such a precious outfit.
For the 2020 collection, the designer turned everything upside down. The ready-to-wear part entitled "14 Servandoni" is more glamorous than in the previous collections with asymmetrical necklines, backless strapless top, puffed sleeves, lace back as well as skirts that turn and skirts with a velvet touch.
The couture collection named "Saint Germain des Prés" comprises pleated tulles, silk shantung, extraordinary lace like dove lace, fuzzy crepes, muslin, guipures ... On the shapes’ side: shell sleeves, long sleeves, naked backs, wise collars, well-marked waists and fitted shapes.
What I like in the brand is the smart zipper concept, the endless opportunity of customization, the beautiful lace and noble materials as well as the refined details. If you are looking for a clever and customizable dress, have a look at Lace!
