Lace Art ~ Maison Lejaby Bridal Lingerie
A few weeks ago I reached out to several intimate brands that are known for their use of Leavers lace and asked them to provide me with some insight into the back story on this unique form of artistry. In particular, I am interested in Calais lace. Produced in Northern France, it is the birthright of lingerie and unfortunately a dying industry. (More about this in a later blog) One response I received was from Maison Lejaby who shared their OUI bridal collection with me. These pieces are exquisite, quintessential French luxury lingerie; the essence of the Maison Lejaby brand. It dawned on me, while perusing the images, that the symmetry between lingerie and the bridal industry is apparent in the beauty of this lace design and the intricate construction of each piece. Lace, sculpted into an exquisite wedding gown or draped across a naked body engenders the essence of femininity. These styles are a reflection of the detail and vision on which a bride focuses on her wedding day.
