Elegant dance parties, Victorian dresses, lace and jewels. These are just some of the things that the word 'Regency' makes you think of, so it’s no wonder that they are such staples of the ever-enchanting ‘Bridgerton’ series! It’s hard not to let your imagination run away with romantic notions of secret love affairs, steel boned corsets, and poignant looks from across the room. And who wouldn’t want to dance in a Phoebe Dynevor dress? While it is impossible to bring an Anthony Bridgerton into all of our lives, Kitten D’Amour has found a way to give you the full experience of a ‘Bridgerton’ series soiree- introducing the new ‘Regency’ collection!
The ‘Regency’ collection features a beautiful array of vintage dresses and gorgeous garments- from lavishly laced steel boned corsets to fanciful fit and flare pants, the ‘Regency’ collection has something to suit every style. If you love how you look in Victorian dresses or if a wiggle dress is more your style, then these designer dresses will give you the variety you deserve.
To truly ensure that you have an outfit for every occasion, ‘Regency’ features two uniquely patterned fabrics. The pinstripe steel boned corset will have you looking right at home as you play pall-mall in the Bridgerton series, and the option for pants and shorts in the same fabric might be better than any Simone Ashley dress! Even the incredible pinstripe pinafore design looks like a beautiful vintage dress in the ‘Regency’ collection.
As far as vintage dresses go, you simply cannot find a more Victorian dress style than the black and silver/gold brocade! The silver/gold and black perfectly accentuate every figure in the wiggle dress, and every design incorporates some of that Victorian dress charm that is so signature to the ‘Bridgerton’ series! Each designer dress is expertly designed to bring out the very best in its materials, from the steel boned corset to the wiggle dress...and the bustles! These vintage dresses and gorgeous garments have been expertly designed to help you be the diamond of the season!
We can never turn back the clock to a more fanciful time, nor can we will ourselves into the next season of the ‘Bridgerton’ series, but we can certainly dress for it!
