Once upon a time, a beautiful young princess was banished from her home, the mystical kingdom, to the woods where butterflies flew and flower petals fell, mirroring the seasons of our life, the choices we make and the beauty that emerges from the darkest places.
This fairy tale by “it” designer Misha Nonoo (her clients include SJP, Gwenyth, Blake Lively and Linda Fargo) inspired her new collaboration, a capsule collection of evening gowns made with hand-painted de Gournay silks.
When we saw pictures of this collection on Misha’s Pinterest board, we had to dig a little deeper and fell upon a great time lapse video of what went on behind the scenes. Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg, the very talented duo behind Ann Street Studio, are responsible for these delightful images which capture the ethereal essence of the tale.
With fresh anemones strewn across the furniture and floor, crowns made by stylist Kelly Framel from The Glamourai and of course, a spectacular backdrop of de Gournay wallpaper, these gowns take on a life of their own.
Oh, to be so glamorous while living in the woods!
