Description

The Colette dress embodies timeless elegance while paying tribute to the sultry silhouettes of the 1950s. Crafted in Italian silk gazar, this strapless dress stands out with its integrated corset that delicately accentuates the curves.

Its carefully placed pleats enhance the waist, while a discreet slit at the bottom of the skirt offers freedom of movement. Its silk organza lining gives it structure while keeping a soft and silky touch, promising a look as majestic as it is comfortable.

Colette can be accessorized with a silk organza bow (sold separately).

Fabric Guide

The silk

Synonymous with luxury, silk is an integral part of the house's DNA. Carefully selected from the best artisans in Como, Italy, and France, this natural fiber is distinguished by its lightness, exceptional softness and unique drape. It embodies the timeless elegance and exceptional craftsmanship that define each piece we create. Silk's ability to naturally adapt to temperature variations makes it an exceptional material, a guarantee of unrivaled quality. A guarantee of quality and authenticity.

Lace

Holders of know-how passed down through generations, I have chosen to collaborate exclusively with artisans from Calais and Caudry in France. These laces, emblem of my commitment, are carefully selected for their superior quality, their design and their history embodying luxury through each thread. Sometimes embroidered, sometimes enriched with pearls, this lace is a guarantee of excellence.

The tulle

Our tulle is carefully selected in Italy and France. Available in polyamide, silk or polyester, it is the ideal choice for bridal veils and becomes a central element of dresses when embroidered.

Embroidered tulle, a pillar of Haute Couture and luxury creations, represents the perfect alliance of the delicacy of tulle and the elegance of embroidery. We offer it in two main variations: a white base for timeless sophistication and a base in beige or brown shades for a captivating second skin effect, where the embroidered patterns seem to hug the body. These variations allow for varied designs, from classic to the most innovative trompe l'oeil effect.

Feathers

Our feathers, selected with the greatest care, come from Italy and come from responsible sources, respecting the natural cycle. Whether ostrich, goose or rooster, each feather is a work of art in itself, dyed and prepared with artisanal precision in Italy before being delicately applied by hand in our workshop. This approach allows us to guarantee exceptional quality and refined aesthetics for creations that harmoniously combine beauty, lightness and responsibility.

Embroidery

Over the years, I have developed a passion for creating my own beadwork designs, a process that combines both art and responsibility. These unique pieces are meticulously handmade in India, by artisans who are masters of their art, in renowned workshops collaborating with the big names in Haute Couture. India, with its rich and ancestral heritage in manual embroidery, was an obvious choice in my quest for excellence. This choice reflects not only a commitment to maintaining these traditional skills, but also a desire to contribute positively to artisan communities, by promoting their work and ensuring fair conditions.
