Marchesa’s Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig are one of the most sought after design duos, designing jaw-dropping dresses for celebs like Naomi Watts and Michelle Obama—Blake Lively and Nicole Richie both wore Marchesa on their wedding day. The duo has extended their reach outside of the fashion world by collaborating with Revlon, adding their signature beading to the brand’s nail wraps. It makes sense then that Marchesa is now taking part in one of the biggest non-fashion trends out there—snail mail.
The designers have teamed up with online stationery boutique Tiny Prints to launch their first foray into stationery with seven designs emblematic of their fall collection, featuring holiday cards, address labels, and thank you notes. “Our collaboration with Tiny Prints was inspired by our Fall 2014 collection and showcases our signature details, floral embroideries and rich colors,” Chapman tells InStyle exclusively. “We’re thrilled with the collection and believe it highlights our aesthetic in a special way for the holidays.”
The collection’s ornate detailing, complete with a palette of gold, saffron, black and cranberry, inspired by the Scottish Highlands, is a natural fit for the upcoming holiday season. “I know our customers are going to fall-in-love Marchesa’s ornate, jaw-dropping designs which are translated perfectly to paper this holiday season”, said Meg Bohnert, senior trends expert at Tiny Prints. “With inspiration taken straight from the runway, the Marchesa designs round-out Tiny Prints’ highly-curated, trend-forward holiday collection. “ To get a head start on your holiday greetings, check out the collection, available today at tinyprints.com, which, as with other offerings from Tiny Prints, is entirely customizable!
