Luxe is a lesser used fabric as it does not take darker dye colors
as well as satin does. Luxe replaced the previous industry standard
of peau de soie (a cottony textured fabric). Luxe bridal shoes and
prom shoes dye much truer than peau on dark colors, and will look
beautiful with any crepe or soft textured dress. Luxe represents
a cross texture between peau de soie and satin. While not the vibrant
sheen of satin, Luxe does have a little sheen, which allows it to
also match up to today’s satin dresses.
Ultra Satin is the most innovative new fabric in the marketplace
today for bridal shoes and prom shoes and dyes beautifully and easily.
Exclusive to Dyeables, Ultra Satin is a dyeable fabric that complements
both dull and matte satin gowns for the bridal or prom market. Peau
de Soie also matches these gowns but does not dye well to dark colors.
This new material has a similar look to the high-end silk-faced
satin material but at a fraction of the cost.
Satin is a high gloss material that matches perfectly with bridal
gowns that have satin bottoms. Satin bridal shoes and prom shoes
dye especially well to deep color tones such as navy, brown, and
burgundy. Satin is a good choice for matching velvet dresses which
are normally quite deep in color and tone. Satin material experiences
the greatest color variance between outdoor (natural) and indoor
lighting due to the reflectivity of the material. Even un-dyed satin
will take on a pinkish hue outside.
Silk Satin" is a natural fabric with a soft satin sheen.
"Silk Satin" has a soft texture and a slight off-white
hue. Silk Satin bridal shoes and prom shoes are ideal for dresses
that are made of Silk or have a "diamond white" or natural
white silk tone. All of the Platinum Collection by Dyeables, shoes
by Benjamin Adams, and Kenneth Cole Bridal collection by Kenneth
Cole are made of the finest Italian Silk Satins.
Peau de Soie is a cottony-based material that works extremely well
with crepe or silk bridal, prom and wedding dresses. Peau de Soie
bridal shoes and prom shoes will not dye well to dark colors but
light colors dye great. Peau de soie is the material least affected
by the ultra violet light spectrum found outdoors. Nina is the only
brand we offer making peau de soie bridal shoes and prom shoes.
Many of Nina's bridal shoes and prom shoes use both Peau de soie
and Satin to create a dramatic and stylish look.
