Elle + Adhira X Daphne Newman
Elle + Adhira presents a boutique collection of bridal accessories that speak to a modern, confident bride – one who carries her own enduring and alluring edge into her wedding day.
Created in collaboration with designers from all over the world, Elle + Adhira’s veils, headpieces, jewels and accessories evoke a unique aesthetic shaped by a love of contrast between opposing forces – the light and dark, the soft and strong, and the elegant and exotic.
Our Sydney-based team collaborates with artists around the world to curate a deliberately small collection of pieces. The majority of the range is hand-made, and designers and creators hail from locations as diverse as New York, New Zealand, Scotland, Israel, and more.
Since launching, Elle + Adhira has grown quickly to service hundreds of women around the world so far. The brand speaks to a woman of strength and confidence who keeps a little of her everyday sexiness and edge, even as she walks down the aisle.”
In collaboration with Daphne Newman comes a collection of soft, feminine veils to evoke romance and embrace the free spirited, bohemian bride.
Three Strand Cord were invited to view the #elleandadhiraxdaphnenewman collection in the late summer.
No longer seen as a mere accessory or mandatory addition to your wedding day, veils are becoming the centre focus of bridal attire. Helen from Elle and Adhira mentioned some brides are choosing their veils first, then the gown to complement!
Italian silk tulle, silk flower appliqués, glass beads and pearls were just some of the materials delicately woven together to make a fine adornment for the wedding day. Sewn by hand with materials sourced from Daphne’s journeys across Europe, together with flawless attention to detail brings a collection to the international market for the untraditional bride.
Embracing femininity, this stunning collection brings moments of slow dances and fairytale nights, and the first soft lights of early morning.
