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.

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.

The New Guard.

The world of bridal has so often been defined by frivolity. By packaged weddings and ceremonies that tend toward the superfluous, where details are added to appeal to anonymous Instagram followers and Facebook friends. This is a world where the woman becomes The Bride, her aesthetic repressed by limited options and tired trends.

Washing over us like a wave of relief, the newest editorial by Chosen by One Day references the artists, visionaries and dreamers who are pushing back. Following on from New York Bridal Week (see our coverage here), Chosen by One Day takes bridal into new, dynamic territory. Featuring intricate embroidery aside sequined slips and billowing silk sleeves, Chosen by One Day has created a collection epitomizing the chic direction the bridal industry is headed in. A love child of bridal and streetwear, this is a collection that shows the woman behind the bride, offering gowns we want to wear and designs that don’t force us to compromise our personal style.

Elegantly Unpredictable.

Champagne, gray and black diamonds set aside exquisite stones that dance with light, we can’t draw our eyes away from Natalie Marie’s newest bespoke and engagement pieces. We first fell for Natalie’s flawless execution of subtly embellished fine jewelry years ago. Focusing on refined detailing and the unexpected placement and pairing of rare stones, Natalie crafts the perfect accoutrement for elegantly unpredictable brides.

This new collection continues Natalie’s inspiring creative arc. Aside from a unique selection of diamonds, it also features luminous white sapphires, peach-toned morganite, rutilated quartz, garnet and spinel – all beautifully hand-formed into delicate stacking rings and distinctive statement pieces.

Fragrant Moments.

Can we speak in flowers.
It will be easier for me to understand.
– Nayyirah Waheed

The finest floristry extends beyond shape and form. It’s a language. An expression of fragrance, color and movement. Every tendril and vine weaves a story of its maker and its buyer, a collaboration of nature, style and aesthetic persuasion.

The latest creations by Rose Apple Flowers speak to warm days and languid nights. Soft blooms in porcelain hues, paired with the pastel skies and iridescent waters that typify Australia’s east coast. Scrolling through their latest real weddings, we’re drawn to their rambling bouquets and organically formed arrangements, creations that drape over hands and wind around trees. With a nostalgic nod to overgrown paths and wild, unkempt fields, think bundles of David Austin roses and ivory peonies, sprigs of jasmine bound by swathes of gauze and ribbons of linen.

Each arrangement weaves stories of budding love and serendipitous romance, of days spent absentmindedly picking at petals: he loves me, he loves me not…
