Entirely covered in thousands of petals, this Haute Couture look is composed of a peplum lace top and a long skirt embellished with a flounced quille. With its thin, embellished straps, the elongated, fitted bodice contrasts with the fullness of the flounces closer to the hem. The embroideries on tulle were done in crochet, with needles, or stitched using a Cornely machine; a close examination reveals constellations of flowers in gradations of rosewood, matte violet and opaline green, sometimes illuminated with minuscule sparkly paillettes.
To close the Spring-Summer 2019 Haute Couture show, the model Vittoria Ceretti wore an unusual bride dress: a one-piece bathing suit with a deep décolleté in back and intricate embroideries of sparkling silver beads, stones and paillettes. This crystalline relief by the Maison Lesage was reprised on a matching swim cap and the look was accessorized with a veil-train embroidered with iridescent paillettes.
The know-how of the Haute Couture ateliers at 31 rue Cambon in Paris comes together in this white organza dress sprinkled with floral bouquets embroidered from multicolored feathers that are hand-painted before being assembled. The nipped-waist silhouette opens into a voluminous, ethereal corolla skirt amplified by tulle underskirts created from several dozen meters of fabric.
