The Vampire's Wife in Vogue US
Modern day heroines Cate Blanchett, Felicity Jones, and Kate Moss, are just some of the celebrities who have been bewitched by the elegant romanticism of Susie Cave’s label, The Vampire’s Wife. (Cave’s husband is none other than Nick Cave, the Australian musician once dubbed rock’s Prince of Darkness). Her fresh outlook and feminine vintage details—streamlined ruffles and delicate ribbon-ties—are now being re-spun with the busy MatchesFashion.com customer in mind, for a special 12-piece collection that goes on sale today.
Cave’s signature mid-length Cate dress is illuminated and party-ready in metallic floral fil coupe (choose peacock, pink, or gold); her floral Night Garden dress spells instant seduction worthy of Hollywood celluloid in yellow silk jacquard (just add a knowing look and sleek sandals). New to the designer’s repertoire are shrunken bright peony cashmere and silk cardigans with micro mother-of-pearl buttons, the perfect layering piece on those breezy evenings when your chariot—or Lyft—is somewhat AWOL. “I don’t think I could imagine dresses I would like more,” says Florence Welch, an ardent supporter of the label. “I feel like Susie has crept into my dreams, and knows exactly what I want to wear.”
