SOUND. THE. KLAXONS.
We are so excited to announce that ARCHIVE 12 will be the first store globally to host the new 2018 DAWN OF A NEW AGE trunk show from Daughters of Simone.
Daughters of Simone wedding dresses are every bohemian brides dream. From their signature crochet lace to the epitome of relaxed bridal style, you can guarantee that any of their designs will be cool AF
The 2018 Dawn of a New Age collection has wowed on every level. Off the shoulder 2 pieces and flared trousers giving me all the feels.
WE BEGAN DESIGNING ‘THE DAWN OF A NEW AGE’ COLLECTION WAYYY WAYYY BACK IN DECEMBER OF LAST YEAR. THIS COLLECTION WAS ALL HEART, WITH PLENTY OF RE-DRAFTING, DOUBT, AND RISK. ARTISTICALLY WE WERE INSPIRED BY THE DEFIANCE ILLUMINATED BY THIS GENERATION IN THE LAST YEAR. WOMEN HAVE BEEN CUTTING THEIR HAIR, HITTING THE STREETS WITH BOOTS AND SIGNS, AND EXPERIENCING A BURST OF POWER THAT THEY, AND NONE, HAS EVER SEEN EXCEED THIS FAR IN ALL OF OUR HISTORY.
IN THE DEPTH OF SUCH A MOMENT, WE WANTED THE PIECES TO FEATURE LOTS OF SEAMS, TEXTURES, AND ADD-ONS TO TAKE ON A SPIRIT OF ARMOR AND PRIDE. IT WAS ALSO THE FIRST TIME WE GOT TO PRODUCE AND DESIGN THE CLOTH OURSELVES; CHOOSING THICK ROPE TRIMS, BRASS SEQUINS, BOLD LACE APPLICATE, PEARLED BUTTONS, AND PLEATING.
WE’VE ALWAYS BEEN ABOUT WOMEN WHO INSPIRE US TO LEAD A LIFE BEYOND WHAT IS SHOWN OR KNOWN. IT SEEMS THAT DEVOTION HAS ONLY BEEN FURTHER REINFORCED IN THE LAST YEAR. THE FUTURE IS OURS TO CHANGE, TO CREATE, AND TO FORCE THROUGH.
‘DAUGHTERS OF SIMONE’ IS ALL ABOUT THAT.
