To say we are pleased as punch about Karen Willis Holmes’ sparkling new collection, Elope, would be a wild understatement. We are, in all honesty, doing excited little grooves here at HM headquarters, beyond stoked that one of our fave bridal brands ever has stuck it to tradition. A continuation of Karen Willis Holmes’ commitment to style, confidence and poise, the collection represents a new chapter for the brand, one rife with possibility.
Playful yet sophisticated, the eight-piece collection is a contemporary brides fantasy. Consisting of shorts, jackets, pants, camis and jumpsuits, the collection promises to satisfy ‘anti-brides’ the world over. Whilst sophisticated silhouettes are the bread and butter of the collection, romantic fabrics get a solid look in with silk satin and gilded lace strewn throughout.
Designed with city hall elopements in mind, the separates and gowns in the Elope collection also make for a bold reception look. Our personal fave? Who can go past the Sherry Dress, complete with feather detail and a whole lotta leg! Don’t even get us started on the Dani Shorts and Charlie Jacket, a match made in heaven.
Whilst all the short numbers are perfect for showing off your groovy-as-heck wedding day heels, KWH has you covered if you fancy a bit more length. Take the Sage Gown, a full-length silky sleek gown, oozing Old Hollywood glamour. True to form, KWH have ensured details are on point with feather tassels that delicately tie at the back.
Separates start from $590 and extend to the decadent ostrich feather strewn Annabelle Gown coming in at a sweet $5290. Head on over here to be one of the first to try these lush pieces IRL. With boutiques in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and New York there are no excuses!
