Decadence in Dreamland

13 May 2016

This season be dazzled by our decadent collection of tiaras, jewellery, hair clips, veils and shrugs, unreservedly celebrating the beauty of crystal. Hedonistic hues of Blue Shade, Smoky Mauve and Blush Rose are juxtaposed against the subtle shades of Light Silk, Silver Shade and White Opal, for a spring time splash of colour among the Silver, Gold and Rose Gold set jewels. Our refreshing use of colour lifts this collection, taking direction from Pantone’s perfectly bridal hue; Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue, the popular ‘Colours of the Year’ for 2016. 

Swarovski Patina Stones, Richard Designs Crystal Comb - TR2204A , Richard Designs Lace and crystal comb - TR2200RS

Inspired by the dream scenes from the eagerly anticipated adaptation of Alice Through the Looking Glass, our designers have immersed themselves in the whimsical world of ‘Underland’.  We have fused the heirloom elements found in the costumes of the Alice characters with the magical glimmer of Swarovski.  We have used ornate jewel set brooches nestled alongside large glassy crystal stones, in creations that you can get lost looking into. 

Richard Designs floral headdress- TR2225A, Richard Designs antiqued effect side tiara - TR2194GS in silver , Richard Designs white opal crystal comb - TR2227A.

New Patina effect crystals in Rose and Silver emulate antiqued mirror glass, and add that aged effect akin to our muse’s looking glass.  When used with the Rose Gold metal, Opal stones and Blush blossoms, the Rose Patina creates a very feminine design.  In contrast the moody Silver Patina, which is offset by the bright silver brooch details and soft silver florals, adds that antiqued striking depth of tone to the collection. 

Richard Designs Champagne Comb - TR2193A

Champagne tones are created with muted Latte lace, light gold brooch elements, and Light Silk and Silver Shade stones for a softer, less brassy gold offering. Our champagne lace and crystal comb, TR2193A is the perfect golden bridal comb that will work with many bridal hair styles.

With this sophisticated collection of elaborate crystal adorned designs, we believe that the time has come for the accessories to shine this season.  Not only have dress designers simplified dress embellishments in favour of focusing on the silhouette, they have created sculpted necklines and dropped backs that are calling out for accessories to embellish them.  

Richard Designs Boho Floral Comb - TR2196A in Ivory, Richard Designs Floral Side Tiara - TR2231A

The new collection offers large stone clustered headdresses with touches of sensitively tonal tulle and chiffon flowers, classically elegant jewellery with large stone and brooch detailing, and muted hue veils with tonal lace detailing. This feminine fantasy look is created by softening the ornamental elements such as the metallic guipure, large stone and diamante brooch elements with soft dreamlike hues of colour.  The bold use of stones in settings is combined with delicately organic, yet sparkly elements. Florals are created with tulle for that dream-like, wispy suggestion of flowers rather than the focus. 

We particularly love our draping floral comb, TR2196A for a boho bridal style. This design is available in ivory with opal crystal as pictured, or in blush rose, with sage and soft pink flowers.

The overall look for the collection is refined ostentation, less eclectic and provincial than previous collections, with pieces to suit all dress styles and a colour to blend with every palette. We hope that all brides will find a piece perfect for them, whether they are Decadent Dreamers or Antique Alices.

To get a closer look at our latest collection come and see us at White Gallery London this weekend to get to see the whole collection all together.
