Exclusive: Zambesi AW14 Campaign

Modern meets grunge.
True to form, Zambesi's AW14 collection campaign brings a certifiably cool mood to the season. The timeless shapes and classic palette for which the NZ label are renowned, form the nucleus of the collection, offset by a couple of flora-inspired prints. Fabrics are opulent matte leathers — either black contrasted with bottle green, or featuring unexpected front seams — or lighter, natural fibres in shades of powder blue. Creative direction and photography came care of Marissa Findlay, a frequent Zambesi collaborator.
Of the campaign, she told us, "I wanted to do something a little more serious but still cinematic. I like the mystery of using an older guy, the story on his face etc... and Georgia reminds me of a 90's model/actress like Nastassja Kinski or Milla Jovovich — strong and seductive. I like the simplicity of the dirty canvas backgrounds and the glass; a juxtaposition of grunge and modern much like the Zambesi Collection".
The collection is now available via Zambesi's online store.
