Collaborations are inherently a thing of beauty and this bridal partnership is no exception! Claire Pettibone, one of the most iconic bridal designers (and a dreamy option for your destination wedding!), has partnered with bridal shoe design brand Bella Belle for an exclusive collection. The limited edition, capsule collection launched in November 2018. The special collection, Claire Pettibone for Bella Belle, includes four shoe styles that combine Pettibone’s signature whimsical aesthetic with Bella Belle’s romantic design style.

“I was beyond thrilled to collaborate with Bella Belle, as my dresses are often paired with their designs,” says designer Claire Pettibone. “To have the chance to put my romantic sensibility to one of my favorite accessories was a dream come true! This collection was inspired by many of the same elements that comprise my wedding gowns…details from nature with a touch of the whimsical.”

Each of the four shoe styles in the collection feature soft pastel colors and are handcrafted from silks and fine materials. For example, the ethereal shoes feature embroideries, French lace motifs and Guipure appliqués.

Claire Pettibone and Bella Belle provided some additional information about each of the four shoe styles in the collection:


A little “something blue” for a romantic nod to tradition. The Freya shoes make a delicate, romantic finishing touch with a double ankle strap and tiny flower buds blooming on the heels. Just a tiny hint of shimmer with silver threads intertwined with ivory and baby blue embroidery and a few dew-drops of clear sequins. 

Fabrics: Silk satin and mesh with embroidery and clear sequins with metallic thread

Color: Ivory with blue and silver


A classic bridal pump featuring French embroidery patterns with a gorgeous scalloped edge to embellish the design. The removable silk ribbon bow is a nod the iconic ballerina. One of Pettibone’s favorite elements, as the bride can choose to customize the design with their own ribbon or heirloom piece.

Fabrics: Silk satin with embroidered tulle lace and silk ribbons

Color: Ivory


Flora is a quintessential Claire shoe; Pale blush flowers with sage green and rose gold accents embroidered onto blush silk satin. A little vintage, a little whimsy and all of nature’s beauty wrapped up into an utterly romantic statement piece.

Color: Blush with sage and rose gold


Iridescent blooming vines are stitched on the mesh upper, and Guipure lace butterflies (a Pettibone signature) have landed to take a sip of nectar. At the back of the show, two winged lovers have found each other, so when the heels are together, they make a sweet pair. The butterflies are hand-tinted, so each pair is unique, and this shoe is available by special order as a limited edition.

Fabrics: Silk satin and mesh with embroidery and Guipure lace appliqués

Color: Ivory with iridescent and pastel embellishments
