THE FINEST QUALITY LACE

D’ITALIA STOCKS A SELECTION OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AND EXQUISITE SILK & COTTON FRENCH LACES, BEADED TULLES – PIECES AND TRIMS.

French / Beaded Lace

d’Italia carries a select range of the most beautiful French laces in an excellent variety of styles, including pure silk laces which are soft and delicate, with intricate and elaborate scalloped borders, vintage-style laces, fine Chantilly laces, heavier Guippure laces, corded laces, fully-beaded or partially laces and the more modern metallic-mixed laces.

d’Italia stocks a selection of the most beautiful and exquisite French laces, beaded tulles – pieces and trims and also:

Beaded and unbeaded Chantilly laces
Beaded and unbeaded corded laces
Beaded and unbeaded Guippure laces
Beaded tulles
Beaded and/or embroidered lace and silk trims
Swarovski crystal motifs and trims

In addition, the French use only high-quality beads. The pearl beads, for example, don’t look plastic or cheap, and the crystals are usually only Swarovski.

All the items listed above are custom-made and hand-beaded, meaning that they are only made after an order is placed for a “piece” by d’Italia. This means that the laces come in only 4 to 5 meter pieces and can take anywhere from 3 to 4 months to arrive from France. It is only once d’Italia places an order with its exclusive French lacemakers that the work begins – the lace is made from scratch and the beading is literally all hand done.

This is why the selection available at d’Italia is so unique.

When a bride has her heart set on a lace wedding gown, nothing else compares in the ready-made bridal boutiques, because lace is such a personal thing.

Lace is classy, elegant, timeless, sophisticated and feminine. What makes it tricky is that there are so many different styles of lace, and a bride will almost always know what style she wants and where she wants it on her gown – but finding exactly that in a ready-made bridal boutique is virtually impossible.

d’Italia carries a select range of the most beautiful French laces in an excellent variety of styles, including pure silk laces which are soft and delicate, with intricate and elaborate scalloped borders, vintage-style laces, fine Chantilly laces, heavier Guippure laces, corded laces, fully-beaded or partially laces and the more modern metallic-mixed laces.

The colour of a lace is also extremely important, as the whole essence must be that the bridal silks teamed with the lace are not too similar in colour – rather, there is at least a slight tonal difference. The reason for this is that if the lace and silks are too close in colour, the lace will be lost on its background and will not feature as it should on the gown. Our French bridal laces come in vintage oysters, crèmes, delicate ivories and beautiful silk whites to compliment any gowns’ base colour.

For brides who have their hearts set on a full lace gown (ie. one which is fully covered in lace from top to toe), d’Italia carries a selection of wide laces. This is important to note, as most true French laces are quite narrow and thus cannot be used for full-lace gowns. A wide lace is a must, and what stands out in the wide laces that d’Italia carries is that they all have beautiful elaborate borders – a detail which is not there in cheaper, less-exclusive laces.

The laces available at d’Italia are French, and such are very much “exclusive” in that they are not mass-produced. Rather, they are made from scratch only from the time they are ordered and can take up to three months to receive. They are made in short 4 to 5 metre pieces, and the styles are not churned out over and over for years on end. Added to this, their “exclusivity” means that d’Italia is the only Australian retailer able to order and sell each style – thereby no other store can carry or use it. This ensures that the laces found at d’Italia cannot be found anywhere else in Australia.

The creation lace wedding gowns from images is simple for d’Italia’s elite team of bridal couturiers, as their level of expertise means that they can accurately duplicate any style with their own hand-crafted patterns. This expertise also means that they are expert in lace work, which requires a high level of technical skill and know-how – as most lace work requires the talent to be able to accurately “cut and paste” lace pieces to avoid sewing ugly seams into the gown and also to enable the appliqué of lace pieces directly onto fine silk fabric.
