Launching the New Collection: The Sublime Seductions of Art Nouveau
5 July 2013
At The Essential Collection on Sunday 7th July we will launch our new collection titled:
Art’s Organic Angels… The Sublime Seductions of Art Nouveau
After months of anticipation and development the Richard Designs Design team are proud to reveal their 2014 collection. Embracing the ethos of Art Nouveau, the essentially feminine and organic collection of accessories looks at nature for its inspiration.
The collection takes influence from artists such as Alphonse Mucha, from whom artworks depicting goddess-like women, shrouded by silk swathes and floral adornment, continue to inspire the silhouettes and embellished detail of current dress collections.
Tiaras & Headdresses
Natural shapes have been incorporated into the new tiara designs, resulting in fluid and sculptural pieces with sensitive organic and tactile forms. We have incorporated more lace in a variety of styles in order to match popular dress collections, and evolved some of the headpieces to be worn a number of ways for a variety of hair styles.
Divinely delicate circlets have re-emerged to be worn with coordinating veils for an innocent, demure look. Soft tulle veils, which sit to the side of the head, drape across the shoulder like an iconic Art Nouveau goddess. Simple but sensitive veil edgings include details of the tiara designs such as delicate appliqués, and touches of lace and pearl. Organic undulating scallop edges with delicate embroidered details are complimented by the simpler fine edged veils, which have a universal appeal.
Jewellery is unique and handcrafted with the greatest attention to detail. A truly ornamental statement piece, when paired with a modest dress and a beautiful belt, will finish the look perfectly.
