May I present Tiffany – a beguiling creation from Kimmera Madison with Tres Beau for the bride who is looking for something completely different.
This dream dress consists of a tight form fitting sleeveless sheath dress of a soft ballet pink with just a sprinkle of lilac in the pattern. Full blooms and petals dance around the dress, suspended in air to create both the skirt and the train ….
You can sense the wind through the flowers, the movement, in such a delicate array. Kimmera has created magic. A wrap of the same design covers the shoulders and she finishes it all off with a gorgeous oversized rose for the hair. The rose can be resized to suit any hairstyle or desire.
Remove the skirt and the train and you have a chic dress to dance the night away and head off for a romantic honeymoon in some exotic resort.
This bride will be intoxicatingly gorgeous throughout her entire special day. Rose petals beneath her feet, roses in her hair, a bouquet for her hands, the air itself filled with perfumed petals and no-one around her will be able to breath …. The entire design is simply breathtaking.
Tiffany is in store now and retails for $2000L.
As fall approaches nature greets us with a feast of deep russets and golds and everything is crisp and vibrant. Kimmera Madison of Tres Beau greets the fall with her stunning “Monarch.” Rich golds and tawny oranges offset with veins of black make this dress a knock-out. Each panel of the skirt appears to be a perfect butterfly wing attached at the waist of a sculpted and gathered bodice that is all caught with a large butterfly. The bodice is offset at the top with soft black feathers that skim across the décolletage making the dress incredibly elegant.
The options of length and sculpted or flex skirts makes this dress very versatile and adaptable. Monarch is available in store now and retails for $800L.
Chaplin is one of those outfits that should be silly and fun but once again Kimmera Madison delights with her interpretation of a classic and turns it into one of my favourite outfits thus far.
I love the baggy pants caught by both the sack waist and the suspenders. This is the epitome of one of the more pivotal points in fashion where women began to insist on their right to wear pants.
In Britain during the Second World War, because of the rationing of clothing, many women took to wearing their husbands’ civilian clothes, including their trousers, to work while their husbands were away from home serving in the armed forces. This was partly because they were seen as practical garments of workwear and partly to allow women to keep their clothing allowance for other uses. As this practice of wearing trousers became more widespread and as the men’s clothing wore out, replacements were needed. By the summer of 1944, it was reported that sales of women’s trousers were five times more than they had been in the previous year.
In the 1960s, André Courrèges introduced long trousers for women as a fashion item, leading to the era of the pantsuit and designer jeans and the gradual eroding of social prohibitions against girls and women wearing trousers in schools, the workplace and in fine restaurants.
Chaplin pairs the pant with a completely scandalous, sleeveless, see through ruffled lace blouse. It is almost a complete tease to the scandal caused by the “wearing of pants” and we have to smile that the pants were once considered the big “no-no” in women’s fashion.
The gauntlet gloves are a great touch to finish the look. “Chaplin” retails for $600L at Tres Beau and is available in store now.
Get ready!! This is a must have for your summer wardrobe. What is more fresh than polka-dots done in a completely grown up way? Answer – “Polka-Spots!!!”
Kimmera Madison of Tres Beau pulls out all the stops with a fun, sexy, flirty dress that will have everyone talking the moment you make your entrance. In a riot of fullness and gathers, Kimmera has shaped the dress to the female figure using contrasting scale of polka dots to add depth and interest. At one moment this dress is all fullness and soft shapes and the next it is tightly cinched to an arm or the waist. The deep V of the opened front with the standing collar showing just a hint of bra is pure sex and the ruffled front of the skirt that doesn’t quite close, allowing for quick flashes of thigh is just fabulous.
The entire effect is a cloud of polka dots and contrasts and glimpses of a woman who is confident in who she is.
This dress comes in Navy, Black, Red and Brown and is instore now, retailing for $600L.
Gossamer is a goddess gown that YOU get to wear thanks to Kimmera Madison of Tres Beau (disclaimer: dress does not come with fawning mortals).
This gorgeous dress floats and shimmers around you in a cloud of sparkling iridescent organza. The gold etched bodice is sleeveless and repeats the beautiful golds and subtle purples over the bra. An empire waist slightly gathers in the organza before the free fall of beautiful folds that flute at the end in sculpted lace for edging. Kimmera pulls the front up and slopes the dress to the back in a beautiful line that adds to the effect of walking in a cloud.
The dress has a stunning component jewelled catch under the bust and matching earrings. The catch holds a lovely shaped and sculpted matching lace piece that just takes this dress to angelic .. adding interest and drawing the eye upward.
This beautiful dress is perfect for an exotic summer night with the warmth of a velvet evening wet against your skin. It is gorgeous on the dance floor as you swirl in the arms of your special someone, catching the light… This dress is a must for your summer wardrobe.
It is available instore now and retails for $1000L
Soho Summer is a sumptuous offering in the casual summer dress department from Kimmera Madison at Tres Beau.
As usual, Kimmera provides options where the bottom ruffles can be removed and the dress can have simpler, cleaner lines for a more casual attitude. I like the attitude of the ruffles at the bottom coupled with the classic shirt dress, and then the exaggerated turn up collar. The deep neckline is very sexy and flashes of leg through the ruffles most enticing.
This particular version in Chocolate runs the entire colour scheme of cremes to deeper browns and the lovely pattern of the dress is accented with dark brown buttons and belt. The dress also comes in Evergreen and Indigo and is currently available instore.
Soho Summer retails for $500L.
Want to come Sailing with me? You can in this stylish summer pant set from Kimmera Madison with Tres Beau.
High waisted flared white pants sport a shoe lace opening at the front that adds to the nautical theme. While not the traditional sailor pant with the button openings on either side, these carry the theme with a real sense of style. A cute little boldly striped top encaptures the whole colour scheme of red white and blue with the striping in blue and white and then one of those fabulous Kimmera Bows on a deep gorgeous red.
Of course every sailor knows about the sun and Kimmera does not forget that either, with another fantastic hat repeating both the colour theme AND the bow.
This outfit is available now in store and retails for $400L.
Kimmera Madison of Tres Beau continues her exploration and love of all things Asian, in her creation entitled “Princess Aura.”
The simple quiet charm of this elegant dress is one of those timeless, border-less dresses that refuses to be pigeon-holed. Like all the traditional pieces, this one can be worn to an early morning tea or an elegant dinner party, depending on your hair and accessories. Kimmera has allowed for the peplum to be optional and it can also be resized so there is no problem achieving the exact look you are after.
The dress itself is a traditional cheongsam which basically means “long dress.” These are so incredibly popular and some version of them always seems to make its way into the fashion parades each season. Kimmera’s version keeps the influence alive, using a traditional Asian pattern of deep reds, black and white. It is accented with a mandrin collar and black frogs. The full leg slits ramp up the volume and you just know where ever you go, heads will turn. Adding one of Kimmera’s gorgeously detailed peplum gives creates a silhouette you have come to know and love from Tres Beau and gives the cheongsam a freshness that speaks to this season.
The dress is available in store now and retails for $800L.
Nadine is one of the next ensembles from the new pages of Kimmera Madison with Tres Beau. One wonders where she finds the time for her whirlwind life and her steamy romances. I think perhaps her muse, Nave Fall, must be credited for some of her endless energy, he is certainly responsible for the ridiculous grin that is permanently plastered on her face …..but I digress ….
Nadine is one of the amazing groupings Kimmera does where you have as many options as you can think of with all the pieces. Pants, capris, skirt … to peplum or not .. that is the question …
The top is a beautiful glossy Satin with a gorgeous taupe, grey and white paisley pattern, I absolutely loved the look of the simpler top with the pants, so very pretty. She sets the design of the top off with a low cut black collar. Add the peplum with its signature ruffles and luxurious extravagance of material, and you feel completely decadent. It is always 3 things for me with Kimmera’s designs .. The lines, the gorgeous textures and that NOTHING is ever skimped on.
Simple accompanying pants, capris and pencil skirt – all of them in black, only serve to further showcase the gorgeous top. AND of course we have one of Kimmera’s fabulous hats, for that sexy, eye peek that no man can resists.
Nadine is in the store now and retails for $700L.
