The Exquisite Claire Pettibone & Bella Belle Bridal Shoes Collaboration
If you have visited Chic Vintage Brides before, then you will have certainly stumbled across the gorgeous gowns of Claire Pettibone and fabulous bridal heels (and flats) of Bella Belle Shoes, and know that I am a huge admirer of their inimitable design styles, so you can imagine my delight when I learned they had collaborated on a collection! And today is the day I get to share it with you…..
The special-edition collection consists of four shoe styles that fuse Pettibone’s whimsical aesthetic into Bella Belle’s signature romantic designs.
Erina and Veronyca, of Bella Belle Shoes shared, “We invited Claire Pettibone to collaborate on this capsule collection as her designs embody Bella Belle’s spirit – thoughtful and exquisite. Her whimsical touch adds another dimension to our brand’s feminine DNA. Each design has that quintessential Pettibone touch and we enjoyed the creative process with her.”
And Claire added, “I was beyond thrilled to collaborate with Bella Belle as my dresses are often paired with their designs and to have the chance to put my romantic sensibility to one of my favorite accessories was a dream
come true! This collection was inspired by many of the same elements that comprise my wedding gowns…details from nature with a touch of the whimsical.”
Giselle is a classic bridal pump featuring French embroidery patterns with a gorgeous scalloped edge to embellish the design. The removable silk ribbon bow is a nod the iconic ballerina. One of Pettibone’s favorite elements as the bride can choose to customize the design with their own ribbon or heirloom piece.
Iridescent blooming vines are stitched on the mesh upper of the enchanting Mariposa, and Guipure lace butterflies (a Pettibone signature) have landed to take a sip of nectar. At the back of the show, two winged lovers have found each other, so when the heels are together, they make a sweet pair. The butterflies are hand-tinted, so each pair is unique, and this shoe is available by special order as a limited edition.
Flora is a quintessential Claire shoe; Pale blush flowers with sage green and rose gold accents embroidered onto blush silk satin. A little vintage, a little whimsy, and all of nature’s beauty wrapped up into an utterly romantic statement piece.
The beautiful Freya shoes make a delicate, romantic finishing touch with a double ankle strap, and tiny flower buds blooming on the heels. Just a tiny hint of shimmer with silver threads intertwined with ivory and baby blue embroidery and a few dew-drops of clear sequins.
With the instantly recognisable Claire Pettibone vintage style and hints of soft pastel colors, perfectly paired with the elegant heels and quality finish of Bella Belle Shoes, these ethereal styles are available to try and buy now at both Claire Pettibone and Bella Belle Shoes, as well as Nordstrom.
