Man, do we love an ultra light and feminine bridal look! So when Bella Belle chose to sponsor a showcase of their latest bridal editorial we were so excited we could hardly stand it. Not only does this gorgeous shoot have all of the latest shoe collection, but each elegant shoe is paired with a stunning wedding gown that we know all of you are going to love! You can see the whole day in the full gallery thanks to Laura Gordon and here to explain the shoot inspiration further is Bella Belle!
The launch of Bella Belle’s latest lookbook further emphasizes its embrace of feminine details and silhouettes. Fittingly titled Euphoria, the new shoe collection evokes the essence of happiness with abundant soft textures, floral embroidery, speckles of sequins, and a wider range of color palettes.
Designed around the joy of celebration, this editorial is filled with warm, happy colors and textures. In addition to its bridal staples, Bella Belle has launched its new line of evening wear. This collection does not stray far from the bridal collection by embracing feminine silhouettes and details. The color palette ranges from classic nude, sparkly gold, ladylike blush to a foolproof black. The collection is designed to serve beyond the evening wear.
Following the success of the first Bella Belle collection, is delighted to have teamed up with Joy Proctor to launch her second capsule collection.
For my 2018 Joy Proctor for Bella Belle Collection, I was inspired by old world elegance paired with modern lines. Looking to the quality of the past, I chose to highlight embroidery in each of the three designs, using a neutral linen base and floral embroidery motif for each.
The Lavender flat reflects my own personal favorite shoe style of choice, an elegant flat with a fun bow. I chose a "V" opening for the toe, which gave the feet a beautiful moment of sexiness.
The Orchid is an elegant yet glam choice that added the luxe of a gold heel while being a very comfortable choice for any wedding; and who wouldn't want to walk on gold?
The Peony is a truly sexy bootie with low cutouts on either side, an elegant stiletto heel and beautiful peep toe to show off your toes.
The aura of the lookbook is inspired by the euphoric nature of the shoe collection itself. It is intended to serve an edgy and fashion-forward interpretation for a bridal look. Joy Proctor once again lent her impeccable design skills and taste in styling and directing the vision of the pictorial.
Laura Gordon's signature soft and ethereal captures brought the Euphoria flair to every frame. Under Gabrielle Hurwitz’s authoritative fashion styling, ethereal gowns from Le Grebenau, Liz Martinez, and Hayley Paige provided airiness to complement the shoe collection.
The inimitable Kiana Underwood of Tulipina created lush floral arrangements and centerpieces that became key backdrops throughout the lookbook. Garden roses, fern, carnation, orchid, and foraged foliage in an array of hues and textures were crafted into delightful components for the lookbook by the floral artist. Thoughtful details such as floral eyelids, a magical floral headpiece, and statement-making accessories were used throughout every scene to further enhance the Euphoria theme.
Last but not least, the scenic Orangerie and greenhouses of Jardin De Buis provided a slice of quaint South of France, captured beautifully on film by Josh Gooden. The result is truly a representation of the Bella Belle’s celebratory romantic aesthetics and its quest to be a pioneer in redefining bridal shoes.
