Something Old, Something New

Another lovely specimen for our Something Old to Something New clutch. Using the design of our {ALEXIS} Clutch, with its practical and timeless envelope style, we created three clutches for our bride and her party.

Our bride chose to utilize her mother’s veil and incorporate that into her own ceremony. Made of tulle and decorated with cotton daisies and a large silk flower, we began the process of extracting these pieces and creating new arrangements and completely new pieces. The large silk flower was disassembled and recreated into three smaller calla lilies. The daisies were split up and dispersed between the three clutches. The tulle was carefully cut into smaller pieces and meticulously wrapped into darling little roses. All then were arranged onto each {ALEXIS} Clutch. The bride chose our rich ivory silk to display these flowers upon. Lined with delicately weaved ivory and gold silk, the interior boasts an intricate design that evokes visions of glorious cathedral architectural lines or perhaps our imaginings of french royalty dress. Finished with ivory satin ribbon, wrapped around and tied into a pretty bow. Success. The outcome is enthralling, we are always so excited to go through this process over and over. So many different materials to transform, so many ideas to choose from in our creation of Something New.

Our {ALEXIS} Clutch is perfect for displaying the details. Once a beautiful veil worn atop a young bride’s crown, now gorgeous reminders of the past and present love are the focal point of this piece, held in the hand of the next generation.
