Autumn is really and finally there–have you seen the enchanting autumn wedding that Julia posted on Wednesday? I then went to the search for bridal gowns, which also withstand a rainy autumn day and have found my way to daughters of Simone! May I introduce: “Tessa” from the current collection called Ritual Woman.
The label is based in San Francisco and sells its clothes worldwide. Inspired by the style of the 70s, the team designs and manufactures wedding dresses that are eye-catching for every bohemian fan–vintage-inspired and made with great attention to detail. Each dress comes into production only when the dimensions of the bride have arrived and is then individually adapted to the wishes of the customer. Also the 2013 collection we are just lovers is worth a look, check out the Etsy shop! For those who like to really love vintage, the label has something to offer: Also originals from the 60s and 70s are available online.
By the way, the name of the label was inspired by one of my absolute favorite writers, Simone de Beauvoir:
She was a rebel of her time who created a life solely around what she stooded for when being your own woman made you a radical. We’d like to think that our brides are just this way. Uniquely themselves, and unafraid to challenge the status quo to design the life they love. Here, there’s a sense that because of courageous women like Simone, marriage has evolved into a really beautiful thing between two people… Something completely about great love, and spending a lifetime of adventure together.–Daughters of Simone
By the way, Simone de Beauvoir rejected marriage as an institution as a social critic and feminist. She saw in it an overcoming form of oppression of the woman, which was mainly reflected in the housewives ‘ existence. These difficulties are, of course, up-to-date and the problems behind it have not been solved, but I think our generation has many individual approaches to reinterpret the marriage. And thus also marriage as a feast of love and family.
All of you who want to deal with this incredibly exciting woman, I can only recommend this article by Maria Popova, and the here and of course that. The opposite sex is still a milestone of feminism – and still as topical as it was then.
The happiness is to live like all the world and yet to be like no other. -Simone de Beauvoir
This is probably also true for the happiness of every bride. Have fun with the wedding dress on Monday wishes you
“Romance and antique lace, blossom trees and billowy sleeves… this is what young love should feel like.”–Daughters of Simone
