Lover (Sydney)

With the fashion world chock-full of haters, Aussie label Lover stands out for their earnestness -- with co-designers Susien Chong and Nic Briand declaring that their inspiration comes from things they love and admire, their "favorite heroes, muses, films and songs." Okay, that's not so bad, is it?... 

The couple's sunny optimism is well justified by the brand's back story: Having started out as a weekend stall at Bondi Beach market, the clothes catapulted to fame when Claire Danes bought a couple of tops and Barneys started carrying the line. With the resulting international renown, the designers are facing new challenges -- designing simultaneously for fall-winter in the northern hemisphere and spring-summer back home. For this fall, they've solved that dilemma with filmy floral dresses layered under tuxedo blazers, and a series of short jumpsuits and leather shorts that work perfectly over tights, all in a black-white-grey color palette.
