One of our favorite designers, Grace Loves Lace, recently launched their highly anticipated 2020/21 Mainline Collection and we are here for it! After teasing the collection, titled 'Elysian' on Instagram, we're finally able to check out the incredible collection in its entirety, which was inspired by founder Megan Ziems' passion for music, poetry and nature.

The collection consists of 11 new gowns, alongside an exclusive range of apparel and accessories, and features buttery soft, stretch crepe, intricately layered Italian tulle, new laces, trims and expert handmanship. From billowy skirts layered with soft tulle, to the incredibly supportive crepe gowns that took Ziems years to perfect fabric for; the design duo's aim was to give women all over the world a highly diverse offering. Elysian takes us on a journey back to the most innocent form of creativity; imagination.

Martini is a refined, modern design, made from buttery soft, stretch crepe that sculpts and supports the body. She embodies luxury you can dance in, full of passion and confidence. Featuring a stylish scoop neckline, daring low back and column shape fit. The detachable back bow is made of double layer silk, adding a dramatic statement on the train. 

Lena is for the woman who wants impeccable simplicity; a gown that is both breathtaking and timeless. This gown features a stunning combination of our distinctive fishtail silhouette and our flattering stretch crepe created to mould and support the body. Lena combines a plunging neckline and a sculptural, fitted frame. Lena’s delicate, Italian tulle panels with hand cut lace motifs have been curated in their placement over the gown, to highlight and accentuate natural contours of the body. On the bodice you can choose between a soft ivory or subtle nude tulle to contrast the delicate lace appliqué. Lena will support your body, shaping your fondest features.

The Willow gown is for the carefree and stylish bride. Made with our buttery soft, stretch crepe, this fitted and relaxed design gracefully skims the body to highlight your favourite features. Designed with clean, contemporary lines, Willow is an undone and relaxed statement. With a scooping front and plunging low back, she is a luxurious gown you can dance the night away in. Featuring a sky-high split, revealing just the right amount of skin to fuse elegance with sexiness. Willow is the ultimate second dress, why have one when you can have two.

Simply slip into River and you will feel effortlessly stylish and confident. With a column shape and fitted silhouette — she encapsulates the perfect balance of minimalism and finesse. With a plunging, paneled bust and daring low-back, she is the ultimate less-is-more gown. Thoughtfully added details like silk covered buttons elevate this gown and draw the eye to the magnificent train. Featuring an abstract pattern with a dimensional contrast of matte and pearlescent thread, when you slip into River you will shimmer in the light. 

A blend of an iconic silhouette and modern lace combinations, the Noah is feminine and soulful. Highlighting our unique abstract Chantilly lace and trims, she is the epitome of modern craftsmanship. With built in cups and an exquisite fit, she offers complete support and functionality. An intricate stretch trim is used to contour the body, while silk godet skirt panels add softness. Noah is a thoughtfully detailed design and beautifully balanced with off-the-shoulder scallop edged lace arm bands and a supportive stretch back strap.

Star is a visionary gown combining opulence and individuality. With a full circle, billowing skirt and expertly crafted, supportive bust — she is a showstopping gown for the woman who writes her own romance. Star features delicate, hand-stitched motifs and a tulle overlay using our iconic pearlescent lace that shimmers in the sunlight. Carefully curated layers have been placed in the skirt to create a floaty and luxurious, dream-like gown. Featuring ethereal, detachable armbands made from delicate, Italian tulle, this gown is truly the Star of the show. 

Introducing Estelle — featuring a decadent, dramatic skirt and clean, simple lines, she is a polished design that is refined and effortless. Made with our buttery soft, stretch crepe; this gown is for the woman who exudes confidence and beauty. With an incredibly supportive bust and interchangeable silk and pearl trim straps, you’ll be able to dance the entire night away in confidence. Available in 40 bust sizes, Estelle is for everybody. Make a statement with our chic Lou Hat and Grace Backpack. 

Introducing the Frenchie — perfect for the woman who dares to be different. Featuring three-quarter length, trumpet-style sleeves and a subtle pearl trim around the waist; creatively designed for the woman who exudes artistic charisma. Full of personality, Frenchie is a chic, unique gown with a low-V back and silk bow that adds a dramatic statement. Carefully designed to provide bust support, she is the gown that women want to wear for a stylish and unexpected look.

Eve is perfect for the elegant woman who wants a twist on tradition. Created to hero our signature rose lace, the Eve has been designed with a double layer of tulle, meticulously positioned to create a dreamy, voluminous skirt that becomes mesmerising as it moves. She radiates charisma and honours time with her flattering sweetheart neckline, magnificent lace skirt, and classic, scalloped high neck. Eve has a subtle, gathered sleeve that is perfectly fitted to elongate the arm, paired with a keyhole back that beautifully balances her.

The Monet is a lavishly artistic design created for the romantic. She has been carefully hand-crafted with a fitted bodice, slim long sleeve and full circle skirt that gracefully moves with you. Thoughtfully detailed with intricately placed, embroidered motifs and a nude tone lining to bring our iconic, Chantilly lace to life. Monet is a romantic and feminine gown that will take your breath away. Floating down the aisle with a divine, low-V back, secure bodice and built-in cups, you’ll feel every bit supported by this special gown. She will transform you into an exquisite work of art. 

Introducing the Filamena — for the woman who is elegantly poetic in her every movement. Featuring a contoured bodice and underwire cup, with a fitted to flowing skirt designed to highlight your favourite features; Filamena is simply unforgettable. The delicate tulle compliments the Chantilly lace, separated by pearl beading along the cup and under bust of the bodice. Elevated with a removable bolero top, transitioning the gown from ceremony to reception. Filamena is brilliantly designed, celebrating natural beauty.
