Zambesi has opened a menswear flagship on that burgeoning shopping mecca that is Teed Street, Newmarket, in between the Storm and Calvin Klein Jeans stores (and just a hop, skip and a jump away from the Zambesi lady’s space). The flagship reflects the label’s current expansion phase – Zambesi Man recently showed the collection in a Paris showroom, and was picked up by several European based stores, including the online juggernaut Asos.
According to designer Dayne Johnston,
“Finally we have a standalone store, a flagship space for our Zambesi Man collections and the contemporary imported labels we stock; Martin Margiela, Raf Simons, Rick Owens and Complex Geometries. We are also stocking a selection of footwear by NDC, Costume National, Raf Simons and Zambesi. We are focussing on a made to measure suiting service, where customers can come and get measured for a custom made Zambesi suit. I am very excited about the new space, there is great energy with our menswear at present, both locally and internationally.”
So, gentlemen, now you can shop to your hearts’ content without having to worry about women getting in the way of you and your python-armed baseball jackets.
