Made for Dancing.

Silhouettes that hang from the body and pool at the feet in seas of liquid silk and antique lace… the latest collection from Alexandra Grecco has us dreaming of languid nights spent celebrating under the stars. Shot in the vibrant streets of New Orleans, these are dresses made for dancing. Infused with movement and a visual fluidity, we love this collection for gowns that are effortlessly wearable.

Soul Stirring.

Evocative memories of formative years and the anticipation of what’s yet to come – Gillian Bell’s cakes are infused with an essence that reaches far beyond flavor. The Brisbane-based artisan cake maker collaborates with couples, using handpicked ingredients and carefully chosen organic produce to draw connections between families, the past, the present and the future. Gillian is the kind of indescribable creative whose work could never be picked from a shelf or chosen from a book. We were honored to host Gillian recently at The LANE office, where she made us the most delicious passionfruit buttercream cake we’ve ever tasted and explained how and why wedding cakes became her life (there were tears). Keep an eye on The LANE for the full article, coming soon.

Intricate Details.

In a sea of emails and group texts we find ourselves romanced by modes of communication often forgotten. Think handwritten letters and scribbled postcards, envelopes addressed in looping scrawl and faded postage stamps that curl at the corners.

Intricately detailed and mindfully created, we love The Little Press for stationery that’s impossible to replicate with a mouse and keypad. The company has an ethos of inimitable quality and understated luxury and each invitation is designed and made by hand in a creative collaboration between artist and client. Beginning as hand-penned illustrations and bespoke typography, every piece is then fed through a manual letterpress and printed onto textural swathes of handmade paper.
