Meet Mister Zimi
Have you met Mister Zimi? If not, I highly recommend that you make his acquaintance. It's Spring in Melbourne, but in typical four-seasons-in-one-day style, the rain and wind has turned my shopping expedition sour. I take shelter inside the Kings Arcade, only to discover a gem in the form of Mister Zimi. The bright bold prints and 70s inspired designs, beckon me to enter and be transported to a tropical island; a welcome relief to the dreariness of the present. Clearly, I'm not alone in my love for the easy-going, versatile and trans-seasonal pieces that I find inside the Armadale boutique; the changing room line stretches almost to the door!
Birds of Paradise is the latest collection from Mister Zimi - a Melbourne born, Bali made fashion label. It's a brand that started almost by accident when co-founder Zoe Paul had a leather jacket custom made in Bali, whilst on holiday. Upon returning to Melbourne, the jacket proved such a hit with friends and family, that within a week she had 50 orders for it. And so began the journey to creating Mister Zimi.
The label features exclusively designed prints across a range of garments such as classic shift dresses, maxi dresses, jumpsuits and more. Now with two stores in Melbourne and two in Bali, the brand has cultivated an international following since its creation in 2007, proving popular with celebs such as Kourtney Kardashian.
Check out the Birds of Paradise collection from Mister Zimi, while it lasts! Also good to note is that they offer free shipping worldwide!
