Exclusive Access to Costarellos's New Collection

Blending luxe bohemia with a beautiful Grecian influence, the unique gowns of Costarellos continue to surprise us, in the best possible way. With the Spring 2017 collection just unveiled, a mix of nostalgic silhouettes and signature laces, these gowns are made modern with daring details - perfect for those in search of timeless, rather than ‘classic’. Available in exclusive early access (for the next two weeks only), brides can pre-order their dream gown from the collection, via the Moda Operandi Trunk Show, online. Or discover earlier collections by Costarellos on his website, here.

Luxe Bohemia

Inspired by our love of a luxe bohemian aesthetic, we’re obsessing over the ethereal-like, elusive magic, romantic enrichment of fabrics & artisan details in Bo & Luca’s new 2014 collection.

Our favourite, the Manhattan gown, with intricately beaded sheer long sleeves, delicate floral embroidery, a low back and sweeping train, is the perfect mix of bohemian ease and garden romance. Worn with bare feet and with untamed hair, it awakens a mood of wild free-spirited glamour.

Read our review of the collection here in The Guide and head over to the Bo & Luca website to see the full look book and take a closer look at the intricately detailed fabrics.

The Mad Ones

"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.” Jack Kerouac

Inspired by some of our favourite words, The Mad Ones, the latest collection from boho bridal label Daughters of Simone (full of non traditional separates and signature, falling-perfectly-from-the-shoulder dresses) captures the spirit of those gypsy brides looking for a little bohemian romance.

While many labels might push the boundaries of bridal with a few non-traditional inspired silhouettes, the ease of 70’s bohemia is the soul of the Daughters of Simone brand. All endless lace, crochet, long sleeves, trailing hems and flashes of skin, these pieces practically invite free-spirited adventure and look somehow destined for great road trips…or at least, a wild reception, dancing until dawn, greeting the sun.

You can shop the full collection (and our new favourite, Casablanca) over on the Daughters of Simone online store

Free Spirited Stationery: The Little Press

Long time The LANE favourites, The Little Press - creators of beautifully bespoke stationery 'for the dreamers, the wanderers and the free spirited couples' continue to inspire us with their mix of globally infused designs. We particularly love the hand penned mix of bohemian motifs with free spirited new wave calligraphy. Brought to life in tactile papery impressions, their aesthetic is a perfect match for brides with an affinity for the natural world, or gypsy like inspirations! 

Other designs blend hand drawn illustrations of native flowers in a spectrum of saturated colours, while the Navajo and nomadic motifs make the perfect prelude to a bohemian wedding!  Printed onto sheets of cottony paper fed through a giant vintage press, the creations are so beautifully tactile they cannot be fully appreciated until touched!

Being a bespoke service, the invitations created by The Little Press will perfectly reflect you and your wedding theme, setting imaginations racing for all lucky recipients!

Based in Western Australia with orders available worldwide, find The Little Press in The LANE Directory, or head to their website to enquire about your own uniquely bespoke stationery designs.

Bohemian Rhapsody: Cadrys

For the wild at heart, gypsy free spirits and global nomads draw inspiration from a love of exoticism, travel and camping under a glistening blanket of stars and use an eclectic mix of woven rugs as kilims in rich contrasting hues for your wedding ceremony and reception styling.

If a spirited bohemian inspired wedding with exotic flair resonates with your personal style we have just added Cadrys (Australia’s leading hand woven rug specialist) to our handpicked Directory of décor hire companies. Think rewoven Afghan kilims, ikat patterns, antique Persians, vintage Moroccan and Chevron Flatweave rugs in vibrant hues of tangerine, oxblood and earthy neutrals.

Use their incredible range of tribal and classic rugs (available for short term styling hire for weddings and events) to create romantic picnic-style seating areas in place of standard tables or a dramatic rug-dressed ceremony aisle of ethnic patterns set in a wide open field. Extend the mood of exotic flair and gypsy luxury with clusters of Moroccan lanterns, flickering tealight candles, open sided teepee tents, rustic wooden bench seats and a barefoot bride and groom dancing to a live band around a blazing bonfire.

If you love to fill your home with trinkets and treasures to create an Aladdins cave of odds and ends that are a careful edit of your memories, experiences and adventures, Cadrys also offer a Bridal and Gift Registry Service. How beautiful to have a rug in your home as a reminder of your wedding!

Cadrys have showrooms in both Sydney and Melbourne. To find out more about hiring rugs for weddings or events visit their official website.
