Our Love Affair With Lover Turns Into An Epic Romance At Oz Fashion Week

Some things are worth waiting for, and Lover's show at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week is definitely one of them. Returning to the catwalk after a five-year hiatus, designers Susien Chong and Nic Briand celebrated a decade of Lover by creating a breathtaking collection that was matched only by the majestic setting of the Sydney Opera House. Entitled "White Serpent," Lover's tenth collection paid homage to the label's past with dream-worthy delicate lace dresses. A menswear influence, evident in expertly tailored tuxedo jackets and trousers with cummerbund-like waists, looked to the future. Lover's pieces have long played upon a dichotomy of innocence and sexuality that has won the label diehard devotees including Alexa Chung and Clémence Poésy. With cheeky, sheer fabrics and an injection of heart-jolting red to a refined palette of black and ivory, Chong and Briand took their expression of complex femininity to a new level. There's no doubt about it, our love affair with Lover has turned into an epic romance!
