It’s always a good start to the week when much-loved Australian designer Karen Willis Holmes drops a brand new collection, and today, we’re showing off the beauty of the designer’s 2022 Wild Hearts collection, entitled “Gaia” and the lowdown? Well, you’re going to love it.

“Gaia” has five beautiful gowns, all centring around the inspiration of someone free spirited, who is unencumbered by limits and rules. The gowns are designed to be beautiful, but comfortable, on-trend, yet relaxed. These are the pieces to check out if you want something a little more pared back, but still want that beautiful getting married and living your best life vibe.

Wild Hearts is made to order, right in Sydney and the best part? Each gown is available in Aussie size 4 all the way up to 20.  There’s “Gigi” a classic v-neck fitted gown with beautiful modern lace, “Dixie” with a fitted u-neck bodice and a romantic flowing skirt. “Drew” bring back the strapless silhouette, brought into modern-day wedding style with an asymmetrically draped bodice and “Wynter” steals the drama with a split skirt, beautiful lace a square neckline and dramatic puff sleeves. Our pick though? it’s “Olive”. A classic wrap V neck gown with open back is elegance personified with full-length sheer sleeves.

These are gowns as we said, are made with comfort in mind. You have beautiful georgette that is soft and supple, and heavy crepes that drape beautifully. There are modern, of-the-moment laces, details like the puff sleeves and skirts that move with their wearer’s body and to be honest are equally at home down the aisle as they are on the beach, in the city or even the mountains. This is a collection that is flexible and transformable, to whatever you want it to be.

The new Karen Willis Holmes ‘Wild Hearts” collection is available at any of the designer’s Australian boutiques and selected stockists around the world.
