Karen Willis Holmes Launches Sélene – ’22 Elope Collection

Named ‘Sélene’ after the goddess of the moon, Karen Willis Holmes newest collection builds upon the already established and adored ELOPE collection, known for its bold bridal suits, powerful jumpsuits, celestial silk slips and daring minis.

This season the team at KWH have designed eight exquisite gowns, all delicate and draped in 100% silk satin, created for the modern woman looking to eclipse the standard bridal style. Here at Together Journal, we think these gowns are so goregous that there’s sure to be one that every bride will fall in love with.

Buttery silk satins that gravitate around the body like liquid gold are dominant throughout the collection, complemented by slips that have been hand-sewn in a heavy dublin crepe, giving form and structure.

A few highlights include Margo (above), a glamorous wedding dress featuring a slim, bias-cut silhouette with a 3⁄4 sleeve adorned with elegant silk covered buttons at the cuff, divine draping through the batwing arm and an optional buckle belt to cinch the waist. Then there is Tammy (below), a twisted halter neck gown with side illusion cut-outs and a sexy split in the skirt.

By far, one of the favourites from the collection is Tiffany (below), a semi-structured silk slip gown with a cowl neck and bias-cut skirt reminiscent of the ’20s. The stunning back is secured by silk covered buttons that sweep into a dramatic, luminous train. Every piece is a statement worth beholding.

The ’22 ELOPE collection is handcrafted in the KWH Sydney workroom and is made to order. It is available in AU sizes 4- 20. It can be found exclusively in KAREN WILLIS HOLMES boutiques in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane & Perth, their online boutique, as well as select stockists in Australia and worldwide.
