Some of you might remember me writing a bit of content for luxury vintage online boutique, Atelier-Mayer about a year ago- I also did a little interview with the founders Carmen and Alice for Dazed Digital which you can read here. Last week I went to view the site's Autumn/Winter stock which include gorgeous dresses like the one pictured right- wouldn't it make the perfect winter wedding dress on a snowy day? Atelier Mayer is also preparing to launch its new Home collection in 2010, featuring work from Jess Graham. Her bespoke vintage upholstery included ottomans covered in 19th century, Cantonese silk shawls as well as chairs and cushions in gorgeous tweeds, velvets and other vintage fabrics.Atelier-Mayer already offers a fabulous collection of fashion-inspired flowers online, but is also now promoting the work of 'The Botaniste', otherwise known as Corina Miller. Having established herself in New York, Corina has relocated to the UK where her creations have graced stylish venues like The Groucho Club. Corina is particularly vigilant in using sustainable floristry and also specialises in installing permanent arrangements using artificial materials.
Here's a picture of Carmen in some amazing crystal-embellished leggings!And Alice in action showing off the collection.Below are some pictures of Jess Graham's gorgeous vintage designs.
Sharing the showroom was Carlotta Danti with her exclusive lingerie label, Rosamasario. You've probably seen some of her vintage inspired pieces in these super- famous shoots, modeled by Kate Moss in W magazine and Natalia Vodianova in Vogue, extracts above. Leopard print fur, bright pink lace, white feathers, nude tulle- the collection is made from the dreamiest materials and is really too good to wear underneath anything!
