It's that time of summer when I am so filled up with summer warmth and happiness that I never want it to end, but at the same time winter fashion is starting to be released and I am feeling enthusiastic about the next season of fashion possibilities.
Any friend who knows me well knows that one of my favourite Australian brands is Lover. There are brands that I purchase from religiously every season, Lover is one of them, and it is their pieces that I pull out many seasons later and still enjoy just as much as when I first unwrapped them. Pieces are well tailored, in classic styles and beautiful fabrics and I cant help but feel refined and feminine every time I wear them.
Last year the Lover A/W13 Nocturnal lookbook appeared in my inbox. The collection is inspired by beautiful yet sinister temptresses; Lady Lillith who, according to myth was a stunning, yet evil seductress, and Catherine Deneuve in the movie "The Hunger", a vampire capable of gifting immortality to her lovers, I like!
The collection embraces the delicate intoxicating beauty of its muses with signature laces, florals and lightweight silks, but this softness is juxtaposed with suggestive dipped backs and oh so seductive buttery leather that will have all admirers weak at the knees. If you're a vegan you may wish to look away right now. Sphinx Midi dress (first image) is a must have!
