Fairytale fans, behold the Spring 2014 collection from the inimitable Claire Pettibone. The one-of-a-kind designer’s newest gowns are just as ethereal and garden-nymph-dreamy as ever, but the newly launched collection is just a wee bit more grown up—a little less boho and a little more chi-chi. You will, of course, find all the yummy details—lace straps, whimsical appliqué, sheer illusion netting, diaphanous layers, oodles of floral touches—that make a Claire Pettibone a Claire Pettibone. It’s no surprise that Pettibone’s mother and father were both professional artists who exposed her to galleries and museums at a young age—each and every one of her gowns is a unique work of art. Her designs haven’t quite made their way to Houston but word on the street is she’ll be available locally soon. Until then, you’ll have to head to ATX to get your own Pettibone. In the meantime, enjoy some of our top picks from the new collection!
