We are deeply influenced by Nick Cave's gothic poetry and his rambling anarchic ballads of love. BOUQUET (below) was conceived after a two week Nick Cave immersion, particularly the video for “Where the Wild Roses Grow” whose hyper-romantic imagery informed the color palette of these luscious, exquisite flowers.
Lost City’s BLACK design (below) was a direct result of our infatuation with Nick Cave’s “Black Hair” which we first heard on “B-Sides and Rarities”.
“Full of all my whispered words, her black hair
And wet with tears and good-byes, her hair of deepest black
All my tears cried against her milk-white throat
Hidden behind the curtain of her beautiful black hair”
