Instantly recognizable but difficult to define, influential yet elusive, Zambesi is more of a feeling, a way of dressing.
The leading label, founded by Elisabeth and Neville Findlay in 1979, is proud to possess a consistent, unique signature with one collection effortlessly transitioning to another.
Designer Elisabeth Findlay is inspired by fabrics and for Zambesi womenswear, she works instinctively, taking carefully chosen cloth in unexpected directions. The result: textural contrasts, inventive, exciting constructions and de-constructions, dynamic layering and often, a nod to eclectic, vintage sensibilities. Playful inventiveness meets the label’s singular dark beauty.
Designer Dayne Johnston takes a disciplined hand to Zambesi menswear. His work results in extremely well cut, wearable garments that capture attention with their clever detailing. Those unique details sit alongside precisely tailored nods to traditional or utilitarian menswear past, resulting in a refined masculine style.
Zambesi has flagship stores in New Zealand (Auckland, Wellington) and Australia (Melbourne) and the label supplies selected outlets worldwide.
