Lisbeth is the pinnacle of fairy-tale romance. Imagine Marie Antoinette’s voluminous yet structured ball gowns in the court of Versailles. Lisbeth possesses exactly the same kind of regal elegance.
An applique of tulip and rose lace, one of Vera’s boldest lace patterns. Oversized tulip and rose blossoms are cut apart and fused together to create the ultimate floral symbol of love. The combination of the two types of flowers gives the lace a rich, tonal pattern.
The following is from Vera’s Blog about the Lisbeth Dress.
When I set out to design this collection, I wanted to re-examine lace, such a traditional, quintessential fabric, but I also wanted to reinvent it with a pattern that really popped. So I love the extreme size of these flowers. There’s a kind of drama you don’t get from more traditional lace patterns, and it’s very different from the more spidery, delicate laces I’ve used in the past. I didn’t completely abandon tradition, however. I still love the delicacy that a really fine Chantilly lace adds, so there are flashes of that appliquéd onto the gown, too. It’s subtle, and so sophisticated.
Covered with dense, tonal lace appliqué, Lisbeth’s classic corseted bodice delicately nips and sculpts the waist with boning into a V-shape, really drawing the eye to the center. The hourglass shape of the bodice is a beautiful contrast to the airy, frothy layers of tulle in the skirt. The open keyhole back is especially alluring. I have always felt that just a hint of skin adds such a modern touch.
Then there’s that dramatic, classic ball gown skirt, a voluminous explosion of tulle layers. The front of the skirt is blank, while the front and back sides have an applique of lace blossoms tossed onto both sides of the skirt. The negative space on the front of the skirt gives you such a nice contrast to the textures of the lace. It makes the lace on the sides feel more special, because you get little flashes of it, instead of it being so bold
Dreamy and diaphanous, Lisbeth effortlessly embodies everything about my return to romance, a thoroughly contemporary take on classicism.
