Together, Mr. and Mrs. Swart share a rare kind of romance.
On paper, the two couldn’t have been more incompatible but since the second their paths crossed, the attraction and chemistry between them was palpable.
Both ambitious and fascinating in their own right, together they’ve captured public curiosity and shot to A-list status overnight.
Their all-black, high fashion, jet-setting lifestyle is turning heads and taking names as they go. Between rubbing Armani shoulder pads with fellow business moguls; attending celebrity soirées and fine dining with socialites, the two enjoy spending quality time with one another in their black-clad estate in Cape Town, South Africa.
They have a pet black mamba snake named Noir, whom they have an interestingly affectionate relationship with. And they also have three delightful tarantulas, Coal, Soot and Onyx.
Mrs. Swart imported the freakishly rare black rose from Halfeti, Turkey and has nurtured and cultivated her own thriving bush. This is her biggest pride and passion. Her extremely rare, intensely black roses are her babies.
Mr. Swart has a penchant for dark art and loves to paint. In high school, he began collecting every shade of black paint he came across. To this day, he continues to add to his remarkable collection, which is currently the largest in the world.
One of their favourite things to do, as a couple, is stay up all night playing cards. They play one another for anything from household chores, to assets, to bragging rights.
