L'esprit de la Noblesse review

May 06, 2022

 


Hello lovelies, 

my parcel from L'esprit de la Noblesse finally arrived. I am so happy about that. At first I did an unboxing video but my SO caught me at an especially unflattering angle and I looked like Jabba the hutt. haha. Also the video had a weird orange tint and I looked like an orange. Or Trump. But I still uploaded it and you can watch it on youtube or here at the end of the blog post. 

So first of all, who is L'esprit de la Noblesse?
It is a small and independent brand from Russia founded by Nicolas and Elizabeth Degaire. They specialize on portrait print and chiffon dresses with inspiration taken from historical clothing or art.
Dresses can be pre-ordered and will be shipped out as soon as they are finished. 
 
I bought two dressed and my SO got two bags and a cape.  As we chose combined shipping it was not really that bad, I think shipping was about 40€. But the import taxes were quite a lot, I expected them but it was still a small heart attack with 200€.
 
The first dress is the "Le boudoir de Madame". It is soft and very silky and has paintings and portraits printed on it. My favourite!

 

 The shoulder straps can be tied separately.
 
The front of the dress is a painting of a greek mythology tale called „Leda and the swan“, a story where Zeus once again can't keep it in his pants.
The print is fashioned after a drawing by Francois Boucher between 1776 to 1802. It's currently in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.

 
Other prints in that dress include "The Pleasures of Education", "The Toilette of Venus", "The Charms of the Morning" ,"The awakening of Venus", "the woman taking coffee", and "Cupid begs Venus to give him back his arms".

 I am wearing it when I had my spring fotoshooting and I loved it. The only issue I have with this dress is the creasing underneath my boobs. It seems like my torso is too short for the top or I have to tie the shoulder straps lower.
 
The second dress I ordered is called "Sea Godess JSK" and it came with a scarf which can be used as a stola, scarf, belt and anything else one can think of. 
 
The shoulder straps are detachable and one can change the size.
 
And there is a shirring for the back.

 
 It's fashioned after another portrait of Francois Boucher called "The Triumph of Venus" from 1740 and is now in the Nationalmuseum of Stockholm/Sweden. Venus is seated in the middle, surrounded by a number of tritons, naiads, dolphins and cupids, all representations of love and all paying tribute to the goddess of love.
 

This dress also creases but I solved this problem by tying the scarf around my waist and make a big bow at the back. No more creasing! Hooray. 

See more about the creasing in action and the full review on my youtube.





All the best,
