The Archive

I love Lela Rose for a number of reasons. I like a lot of the extra touches she adds to a dress: the silky  charmeuse linings that no one sees but make all the difference as you feel them against your skin, the ivory boxes dresses are sent in, each carefully wrapped in tissue. And I love the thoughtful names to each dress we see from her. So imagine how excited we were when we heard that our next Lela Rose creation is having her finishing touches done, and she's scheduled to arrive to us any day now! Ladies and umm, ladies, meet Archive!

The Archive was just featured in Brides Magazine, and you can see why! She's an absolute stunner from the fluted skirt, to the incredible beaded bodice and unexpected pop of peplum fitted around the waist with a bit of silk grosgrain. And just the name Archive conjures up images of the romance of an old Italian library along the canals of Venice, or stacks of photographs of weddings through the ages. It's the perfect blend of timeless and modern.

And of course, those little Lela touches are abundant. The tulle illusion neckline is demure without being stuffy, the skirt has a subtle sheen to it that contours along the body perfectly, and the beading peeks just over the edges of the lining in an slightly asymmetrical pattern, creating a whole other level of interest.

You can feel the love on a Lela dress the way they're detailed, and each one is a truly special, unique creation. We're so excited our newest Lela girl is already feeling the love on the editorial front, so who's going to try her on here first?
