Lorde didn't just bring light to shine upon her talented voice, but also towards her impecable style. My wardrobe choices from when I was 17 are put to shame by Lorde stepping out in Zambesi. Zambesi was founded in New Zealand by Elizabeth and Neville Findlay in 1979, and I'm a little emberassed to say it's taken me this long to discover such an evolutionary fashion line.

Sophisticated dark beauty, borderline grunge, is reached by two incredibly talented designers; Elisabeth Findlay (womenswear) and Dayne Johnston (menswear). I'm glad Lorde has become fond of Zambesi as much as I have because they make such a perfect combination. You can checkout their SS 13/14 collection inspired by a sense of freedom here.

Once again, thank you New Zealand for gifting the world with great taste in music and fashion.
