Idylle is a piece for violin and piano composed by Edward Elgar in 1884, as his Opus 4, No. 1. It was Elgar's first published work. It is dedicated to "Miss E. E., Inverness" A loving gift.
Kimmera Madison's Idylle, captures Elgar's infatuation and invokes the essence of the word with its rich colours. Idylle is also a loving gift. a promise to the men of SL. The word Idylle has many shadings and meanings from a romantic interlude, to a narrative, to a short piece of poetry depicting pastoral scenes. You can write you own stories while wearing Idylle.
Idylle has the look of lingerie, and the version in the pictures is plummy purple .... but there is nothing 1800s about this exquisite new, barely there, gown by Tres Beau's Kimmera Madison. Retailing at $400L you have a colour palette of Blush, Black, Rouge and shown here … Plum, to choose from.
The bodice is formedof silks semi transparent plum and sheer black, framed, and detailed, with black, glossy, silk ribbon of varying widths. Rose and leaf patterned black lace is sewn onto, and edges, the bodice to form the sides and lower portion. Despite the use of such delicate sheers and lace, Kimmera manages to keep the dress appropriate and elegant.
The merest hint of a skirt is formed with stringed drops of handmade, knotted lace, caught and gathered in the front and the back. The visibly intricate detailing on this gown, a signature trademark of all Kimmera's work, is outstanding. You'll fall in love with this versatile dress and you'll certainly be noticed the moment you walk into a room. HE will fall in love with you all over again.
