Stopping in on our travels through LA to the Esqueleto space, a haven rich with foraged jewels from a myriad of incredible designers. We were mesmerized by intricately layered pieces, beautifully complex and more akin to art than traditional fine jewelry. For boldly unexpected pieces view the full Esqueleto collection on the website. 

In the wake of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, we’re left dreaming of the Albus Lumen Runway show. Featuring designs in linen and silk, adorned with oversized mother-of-peal buttons and accessorized with Ryan Storer seashell jewels. The collection was a beautifully modernized take on the prairie girl and has us planning our next vacation wardrobe. 

Forever scrolling the beautifully curated Instagram of Emily Lauren Designs, we were excited by the launch of her newest boutique collection of pre-set stationery designs, tailored to you. Our go to for a stylishly minimal aesthetic, Emily Lauren is a maestro of luxury artisan stationery and invitations. 

We love witnessing collaborations between exceptional creative talents, especially The LANE hand-picked brands and we're so excited by Anna Sheffield's newest Australian Stockist. Pieces of Eight, a boutique presenting a curated collection of jewelry designed by the most talented of artists. For those residing in Melbourne we recommend a visit in store or contact via the website.

The latest venture ‘Mr. Day’ from The LANE favorite One Day Bridal, has us eagerly anticipating the launch of The LANE Man. Mr. Day is a collection of men’s accessories for the stylish gentlemen, to view the pieces or for inspiration follow Mr. Day on their chic new Instagram.

Summer Soirees.

As we lose ourselves in the midst of Sydney’s winter, we can’t help but dream of summers spent on the deck of The Avalon on the Beach. Just one of Trippas White Group’s Sydney event spaces, this venue lends itself to beachside weddings and summer sunsets. Think tables styled in hues of ivory and sand, sheathed in billowing linen and topped with feathered blooms that cascade to the floor…

Discover the full venue collection on the Trippas White Group website or see more of our styled tablescape here.

Contemporary Craftsmanship

Some of our favorite frames from the recent wedding of Nunzio Bagnato, the man behind LANE handpicked brand Dom Bagnato. Son of the brand’s founder and namesake, Nunzio’s wedding was an exercise in classic suiting, in sleek lines and crisp finishes – everything we’ve come to expect from the Dom Bagnato name.

Opting for classic tuxedo suiting and statement lapels, Nunzio wore two ensembles throughout the day, beginning with traditional monochrome before changing into a double-breasted jacket with statement finishes.

From groomsmen to ring bearers, each creation paid solemn tribute to the brand’s ethos of impeccable tailoring and luxury fabrics, a reputation built over 30 years spent creating timeless suits. Sitting at the pinnacle of the suiting industry, discover more on the Dom Bagnato website.
