Hera Couture: Floating on Cloud 9

Leading the wedding industry in style, Hera Couture has introduced a new detachable sleeve collection designed to give brides the freedom to create their own love story.

“The Floating on Cloud 9 collection was inspired by the translucency of water and fallen leaves invoking the romantic images of the changing seasons in Italy,” founder and head designer of Hera Couture and Daisy, Katie Yeung, explains.  

In reflection of this, each style has been given an Italian name from Nuvole and Alba to Breeza. Inspired by the grand, fluid grace of Victorian Opera gowns, even the most minimal of wedding attire will become one to remember courtesy of Hera Couture’s impressive sleeves.

“This collection has been created for brides around the world, whether they choose to dress themselves in a Hera, Daisy or other designer gown. These sleeves are designed to be paired with any dress, pant or top allowing each bride to create their own individual look. Our collection will elevate their wedding dress to stage-worthy fashion and drama,” Katie says.

“There is no right or wrong way to style a bride’s wedding look. Dress in a way that expresses who you are, whether that’s a reflection of the Queen, Princess or fairy tale inside you.”

Expect light-catching fabrics, billowing silhouettes and a gorgeous marriage between tradition and the contemporary.

The Onda in Organza sleeves were first to tug at our heartstrings. A dreamlike addition to any minimal gown, each sleeve is cinched with two silky ribbons for maximum shape and volume. The design also comes in pleated tulle, a more lightweight and sheer interpretation of the beautiful silhouette. Hera Couture recommends pairing with chic separates to elevate the look.

Mirroring the drama of Onda is the Inverno. Cut from French crepe, the ultra-luxe sleeve is pinched from the wrist and shoulders to create a Grecian waterfall effect. Consider this the ultimate addition to simple halter neck gowns.

For brides seeking a silky satin finish, Kisa is the answer. Boasting a tailored puff shoulder and pearl-emblazoned cuff, she will make a spectacular finish to one of Hera Couture’s Mikado gowns – especially the Vivienne

Meanwhile, the Ada Beaded Sleeve is an homage to the ’80s with heavy embroidery, pearl cuffs and sweet cloud-like shoulder. Hera Couture suggests pairing the fun addition to their Louvre Cigarette pants to dance the night away in style. If you love the shape but would prefer a more fuss-free style, the Ada also comes in French Crepe – destined to complement Hera Couture’s Le Minime gown.
