Claire Pettibone went “California Dreamin’” for her pretty Spring 2017 Romantique bridal collection. Taking cues from the multifaceted background of The Golden State, the designer presented a lineup of soft, boho chic looks infused with her signature romantic vintage flair. Featuring exquisite laces, both deliciously delicate and boldly crocheted, the collection offers free-spirited brides gorgeous, effortlessly stylish options for more casual affairs:
“From the West coast beaches, and the long, windy drive along the Pacific Coast Highway to wine country and redwoods, it’s easy to see why the world is in a love affair with California. Creating this Romantique collection, I was inspired by the diversity of my hometown.
The City of Angels attracts beautiful people from across the globe, from every culture, searching for that ineffable dream. Growing up here was perhaps the perfect place for my own dreamer’s heart to find its way. Our city’s Spanish roots are evident not only in the names of many of our towns and streets, but in the rich tradition of Latina culture so befitting a beautiful bride. Embellished necklines, backs and sleeves convey a refined mood, and the embroideries and scalloped laces impart a touch of celebrity glamour. Incorporating another aspect of the LA vibe, of course I had to give our beach babes and bohemian spirit equal time with crocheted laces, sexy backs, and sheer, red-carpet-ready accents. Legs, backs, and beach inspired details are perfect for a walk in the sand, or vows in a sun-dappled forest. Sunset on the beach, care-free in the breeze of a vineyard, or luxe lace mantilla style…take your pick. In California, anything goes.”
