Claire Pettibone for Bella Belle
The chance to add my romantic sensibility to one of my favorite accessories for Bella Belle is a dream come true! This capsule collection of bridal shoes was inspired by many of the same elements that comprise my wedding gowns…details from nature with a touch of the whimsical and ethereal.I’ve always loved a touch of color in my bridal gown collection, so I had to create Flora. Pale blush flowers with sage green and rose gold accents embroidered onto blush silk satin. This shoe is the ultimate romantic for sure! A little vintage, a little whimsy, and all of nature’s beauty wrapped up into an utterly romantic statement piece.Just like every woman, I’ve always loved shoes, and I’m so excited to introduce this collaboration with Bella Belle! These shoes make a perfect accessory for a Claire Pettibone bride, and add a feminine touch to any wedding ensemble.Iridescent vines are blooming, and Guipure lace butterflies have landed to take a sip of nectar on the Mariposa shoe.At the back, two winged lovers have found each other, so when your 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.Giselle features French embroidery with a gorgeous scalloped edge along the toe and heel. The removable silk ribbon bow is a nod the iconic ballerina, and can be worn as-is, or removed for a classic take on modern-vintage style.A little “something blue” for a romantic nod to tradition, the Freya shoes are bridal perfection! A double ankle strap, and tiny flower buds blooming on the heels are irresistible. Just a tiny hint of shimmer with silver threads intertwined with ivory and baby blue embroidery are finished with a few dew-drops of clear sequins.Photographed at the Claire Pettibone Flagship Salon in Los Angeles by Jeremy Chou Photography with styling and florals by Chloe + Mint.
