That’s exactly what vintage-inspired accessories brand Britten have created with the launch of their 2014 Libertié Collection.
Inspired by the style and glamour of the Edwardian golden age, the Liberté Collection reflects the fusion of Art Nouveau and British Luxuries that became synonymous with King Edward VII’s reign.
I know, fancy schmancey.
There are twenty four bespoke pieces to choose from, all hand made at the Britten workshop in Bath. Every bead is hand-sewn, every pattern hand-cut and every flower hand-pressed from softest silk and it is this dedication to design and craftsmanship that ensures each accessory is completely heirloom-worthy.
As well as some show-stopping headpieces the Libertié Collection also offers a selection of feminine bags and the most spectacular marabou feather fan, the ultimate in evening glamour. Or I’m thinking an alternative to a bridesmaid bouquet perhaps?
I have (as you can imagine) quite a few favourites but I think the Darcy might be my top pick, you see so much “headpiece” styling with sophisticated up-do’s yet I love how these images are also presented with long flowing (and ridiculously glossy) locks. I wonder what shampoo the model uses…think I might try and find out.
And the make-up, did I mention that? this palette of apricot and bronze is perfection for W-day, modern and pretty yet still uber natural.
Each item purchased from the Libertié Collection is made to order and presented in a a luxury gift box which means you will feel VERY special indeed (yes sometimes when I purchase items on-line I request gift wrapping…just for myself.)
The collection starts at £95 and you can view the entire range at www.brittenweddings.co.uk.
So you gorgeous lot you, anything take your fancy?
And if you know how to achieve hair so shiny you can see your face reflected in it then do let me know.
