Nic and Susien are lovers and the creative pair that formed the aptly named fashion label Lover.
“More often than not Nic and I will give each other books, DVD’s or CD’s to each other as presents. We love how inspiring they can be, and they always end up referenced into a collection, somewhere, somehow. Last Christmas we gave each other books, that became the starting point for our new Spring Summer collection, ‘Untitled’.” Susien

“Nic gave me a book of photographs by Lewis Carroll, most famous for his masterpiece ‘Alice In Wonderland’. The photos have a beautiful Victorian feel about them, with many of them being of his muse Alice Liddell, who inspired the book.” Susien
From these books sparked the idea of creating a collection that was based around the female artist, with touches of tomboy and Victorian beauty.
