Today we’re doing a sort of sneak preview of a new collection that will be coming later on this summer and represents a new facet of Bolero: we’re doing a line of all white clothing! We’ve been asked about doing something like this for years by customers, but our lead designer’s trip to Spain this winter got her inspired to create something. Later this spring, we’ll be welcoming the Paloma collection to our online store!
Paloma is a common name in Spain, but it also means dove in Spanish. When Patricia came back from Spain, she had white doves and an all white clothing collection on the brain. The collection will include a wide range of pieces, from dresses to convertible separates to pants. Some of the dresses will be versatile enough to work for casual warm weather brides to daily wear. Lots of cities have events based on white clothing as well over the summer, which
makes this collection perfect for those of you who are looking for all white outfits for art or music events. Read on to find out some of our plans for the Paloma collection, along with some sneak peeks and pictures.
White Lace Strapless Maxi:
We made a version of this years ago, but it was designed to work well on DD cups only. This beautiful dress has been reworked substantially to fit beautifully up to an H-cup and incorporate ties that can act as a halter top or convert the dress into other silhouettes. Since it uses a beautiful white lace, this dress can work for a beach wedding or as a dress for evening events. Functional and comfortable strapless dresses are incredibly hard to find in larger cup sizes, so we’re looking forward to releasing this completely unique option.
White Lace Pants:
Our pants don’t get as much attention on social media, but they have a strong fan following! Like our dresses, these pants pack beautifully and don’t wrinkle, so they’re perfect for traveling. Our standard inseam is 32, but we can make whatever your in-seam is at no extra charge. These pants are lined, so you get a semi-sheer effect but still have plenty of underwear coverage.
We’ve always built Bolero pieces to be adjustable, but we’ve never gone into the realm of fully convertible pieces before. This top can be worn a whole variety of ways, from strapless to one shoulder to off the shoulder. We’ve lined the bodice for coverage and comfort. This workhorse top will become a staple in your summer wardrobe, from parties to beach vacations. This isn’t a style you see in larger cup sizes, so we’re thrilled to be able to put out something so beautiful
and useful that still fits H-cup bra sizes!
This skirt can be worn in a variety of ways as well, from a sleeveless dress to a long skirt! We love it with the top as a set, but it’s also a great basic to pair with your own t-shirts, blouses and halter tops this summer.
Sweetie Dress in White Polka Dot:
For the first time, we’re dabbling in dresses that could be used for a more casual bride! We love this gorgeous 1950’s inspired polka dot dress, with trendy sheer polka dot sleeves. The entire dress is lined for coverage and comfort, which also creates a wonderfully smooth silhouette. This is a great piece for a party dress or for a curvy bride looking for that vintage look who hates getting things altered.
This is the classic Marilyn Monroe halter dress, but with a design that highlights all of your curves and has room for your bust! This classic piece is perfect for vacations, summer weddings or every day you want to channel your inner vintage goddess.
