The Vampire's Wife

Susie Bick was one of those models who was truly captivating.  She wasn't a household name - except in the coolest households - and while still a model she's also a designer and has used the title of an unfinished novel by her husband (only Nick Cave) as the name for her line.

Inspired by vintage pieces and guided by her own elegant tastes, The Vampire's Wife offers a small range of styles but each one looks like it has its own story.

They're like pieces from a film by Fellini or Sophia Coppola. The skirts are so swishy, the dresses so romantic and perhaps this is me getting distracted by the name but the collection has a wonderfully bittersweet film noir feel. I love it.
