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.

Simplistic Bridesmaid Silhouettes.

London based Rewritten is simplifying bridesmaids. With a collection of modern and minimal designs, this is a brand that takes the headache out of bridesmaid shopping. Key silhouettes are reworked in a variant of colors, allowing gowns to be mixed and matched by swapping colors or alternating designs. Think simplistic silhouettes in muted tints of aubergine, dusky pinks and oyster greys, elevated by bare shoulders and cinched waits.

See the full collection on the Rewritten website.

Decadent Adornment.

Just landed in our inbox, a creative collaboration featuring some of our favorite designs by Melbourne-based Anna Campbell. Captured by LANE handpicked photographer Cinzia Bruschini, each shot is intoxicatingly atmospheric with decadent embellishment adorning gowns of silk, tulle skirts and intricate veils contrasted by the aging walls of London’s Asylum Chapel. With a dark, moody ambiance that has us dreaming of midnight ceremonies in overgrown chateaus, this is one collaboration we can’t get enough of.

Discover the full editorial and shop the collection on the Anna Campbell website, or get in touch with Cinzia Bruschini here

Highlights This Month.

April at The LANE evolved in a flurry of movement. Our office-turned-studio was brimming with visionary artists as three major shoots unfolded, and we're so excited to share the results. From world-class chefs to Parisian designers and New York Bridal Fashion Week, these are our highlights from a month of compelling creativity…

Having cooked for the likes of Kate Moss and Adele, we were mesmerized as Studio Neon’s Aaron Teece took over The LANE kitchen. Unexpected flavors and inspired plating using Phendei and Batch ceramics, Cutipol cutlery and Cultiver linen, this shoot is coming soon to The LANE…

Wildflowers and delicate lace gowns... this editorial shoot had us totally mesmerized. Produced in collaboration with the incredibly talented Edwards and Co, Thanh Vo, Grandiflora, ElleryRyan StorerLucy Folk, and Sarah & Sebastian, stay tuned...

Edwards and Co transformed our office into a hair salon as they dreamt up fresh inspiration for bridal hair. Think tousled waves and unexpected up-dos, all styled on one of our favorite models, Izi Simundic, shot by Paste Studios.

In a diaphanous whirlwind of luxurious feminine silhouettes and exquisite detailing, Gritty Pretty’s Eleanor Pendleton visited our La Porte Deux home to create the stunning first look book for Pallas Collective.

The latest addition to the Pallas Couture atelier, we’re thrilled to exclusively unveil the Pallas Collective line and look book (shot by one of our favorites, Alli Oughtred!), soon on The LANE.

Set amongst the hypnotic landscapes of Queensland’s Girraween National Park, Gavin James’ portrait series has us enraptured. Think evocative frames in moody hues, an ode to lost loves and dark romance…

After months of planning and anticipation, we were finally front row and backstage as our favorite designers unveiled their new collections at New York Bridal Fashion Week, including this Mira Zwillinger creation that left us speechless.

The newest addition to Maple Soaps’ collection has us simultaneously dreaming of escaping to wildly exotic destinations and snuggling up with a cup of Earl Grey. Handmade in Sydney and beautifully packaged, their new Bay Leaf and Bergamot soap bar is refreshing to the senses and an inspired idea for favors that won’t be left on the table.

Drawn to clean lines and monochromatic styling, we’re loving the latest stationary sets from Written Word Calligraphy. Like a flawlessly tailored noir tuxedo, this set is timelessly beautiful and perfectly minimalist, with hues of ebony and highlights of pearl.
