Collection Highlights: Collette Suite
Our Collette Suite is inspired by vintage weddings and features a hand-drawn illustration of a gorgeous peony flower and buds. This gorgeous illustration is paired with traditional typography and some refined envelope finishing details. The pieces in the suite are letterpress printed with a beautiful deep letterpress impression on soft cotton paper. This suite is perfect for couples wanting to incorporate floral elements into their stationery whilst still keeping a classic and elegant look to their invitation style.
The Peonies illustration for this suite was created by hand-drawing a peonies flower and buds in a detailed pen style. The illustration has been used in different ways throughout the suite. For example, it adorns the top right of the Invitation and the bottom left of the Save the date. Using the illustration in various ways keeps the suite fresh and interesting.
The Collette suite peonies illustration is beautiful printed in pale ink shades such as pink, blue or cream and paired with darker ink shades for text. Some of our favourite combinations include: Dusty Pink with Taupe, Dawn Pink with Charcoal, Frost with Jet and Pale grey with Slate.
The Collette suite is best finished with simple details that allow the illustration to shine. We've paired the sample design with a simple envelope liner Blush Mist watercolour which really brings out the pink tones of the Dusty Pink ink shade. Other great envelope liner options include the Calligraphy flourish and Classic stripes, best printed in the text shade to make the design pop.
Other beautiful finishing options include printing on the envelope front and flap of guest names and addresses and return address. The script style used for the bride & groom's names and feature text within the design is carried through to the envelope fronts for guest names and addresses - a beautiful traditional touch echoing formal calligraphy of the past.
