Acclaimed for her ornate handcrafted wedding gowns, Israel based Dana Harel beautifully blends contemporary and feminine aesthetics using luxurious textiles. From diaphanous silk tulle to hand embroidered details, Dana’s craft of combining avant-garde materials has positioned her as one of the most sought after designers in the luxury bridal world.
We were given an exclusive look at Dana Harel’s latest collection ‘Daydream’, a juxtaposed range of feminine, delicate pieces and bold beaded gowns inspired by the ‘caftan’ or ‘gallabia’ dress, originating from the Middle East.
Each piece is completely custom made, sourcing fabrics from one of the leading fashion and fabric tradeshows in the world, Première Vision Paris. Dana Harel’s inspiration comes from travelling the world and from the unique fabrics and luxurious materials used in haute couture designs.

We had the dreamy new Nevenka collection, Black Swan, in The LANE office this week, and fell in love with these ethereal pieces in weightless layeres of transparent lace and delicate tulle. For us, luxury is always about the little details and the poetry of Nevenka is in the way each gown falls, how fabrics feel against your skin, the intricacy of every lace panel, the delicacy of a ruffled neckline, and the story behind every stitch... sensory details that truly needs to be experienced in person.

Romanced by simplicity and subtlety, our latest discovery, New York based LEIN is a label that has us dreaming of barefoot beach celebrations, languid post wedding brunches and summer nights in Paris. With a background in PR for the likes of Chanel and career as a celebrity stylist, designer Meredith Stoecklein saw a gaping hole in the world of bridal fashion where understated could be achieved without compromising on luxury. And we can certainly vouch for that, having experienced these exquisite fabrics and masterful cuts up close. Think fluid lines and chic silhouettes, effortless ruffles and unassuming textures. A magic that lies in the way each piece make you feel. Explore the collection here.

That beautiful balance of opulence and effortlessness. Intricate embellishment over silhouettes you can move in. We’re loving the new direction we’re seeing from Anna Campbell, weaving the designer’s signature beading over billowing fabrics. An aesthetic that feels a little more undone, and details like laser cut French lace giving a softer, more delicate finish to her designs.

With an alchemic intuition of the female form, and the textile fruition of the future feminine, Halfpenny London was born shrouded in ceremony. As a go-to designer for Kate Moss and Rihanna, the rise of Halfpenny London has been stratospheric, in no small part to their flawless silhouettes that espouse both timelessness and a chic modernity.
Unveiling their stunning new AW 17 Collection ‘STANDING ON STARDUST’ the brand continues its unique expansion into an ether all of their own. To view more of the collection and to enquire about working with Halfpenny London on your wedding gown, see here.

There's such a shift we're experiencing in bridal. A new wave of boutique labels bursting onto the scene with a fresh perspective, recognising that while we're classicists at heart, we want gowns that feel a little less cliche. We want romance that feels a little undone. It's brands like Anais Anette that have our attention, with their dreamy collections that weave together the beauty of tradition found in hand stiched details, heirloom draping and architectural precision - but blended with a clean contemporary twist. Demure long sleeve gowns in the most exquisite lace, that move a little more fluidly. Delicate embroidered details that reveal hints of skin. The Toronto based duo, sisters Magdalena and Karolina have us obsessed with their latest collection, which you can view over at the Anais Anette website and trunk show dates here.
