Perhaps the most romantic collection we saw at NYBFW, The White Album by Claire Pettibone has such a regal, fairytale quality to it. Sweeping tulle, impossibly intricate lace and see through necklines that made for such delicate, beautiful gowns. They almost have a renaissance feel to them, true to the designers love of vintage and bohemian styles. Described as a “cleansing of the palette,” the collection includes couture gowns re-imagined in classic shades of pearl and ivory.”I know white and ivory are obvious in bridal, but for me, designing a collection with no color is actually a first!” said the designer. “Each season is an evolution, and sometimes a fresh start from the last. Since my Vagabond Collection was color-filled, I felt the inspiration for this season to work exclusively in shades of white. There is a simplicity, and a purity to an absence of color, where the focus becomes purely focused on silhouette, texture and detail.” The designer focuses on creating dresses that make brides feel like goddesses, and we have to say we think this collection absolutely hits the mark.
