We just got our first glimpse of Claire Pettibone’s Fall 2012 collection, which was inspired by the French countryside, and it’s jaw-droppingly spectacular. As the French would say, “C’est à mourir pour!” The collection features French-patterned bodices, delicate lace overlays, the most breathtaking illusion backs, and a fitting color palette of muted gold, Marie Antoinette blue, and dusty peach. Beautiful world, indeed!

Join me for a languid summer in the French countryside. Antique gold, toile, and tapestries inspire the textures and details for the collection. The juxtaposition of gilded refinement and relaxed country living brings Parisian luxury to a rambling garden party in full bloom. An homage to the decadence of 18th-century France, contrasted with the soft breezes of a warm summer night . . . kick off your heels, have a glass of wine, and live! ~ Claire Pettibone
