“The inspiration for this collection was a satellite photo of the ‘Tribute in Light,’ which is the annual display of two beams of light illuminating the Manhattan skyline in remembrance of the September 11th attacks. The collection’s theme conveys the brand’s respect toward the heroes of the city and expresses a positive outlook for the city’s future. The color palette is greatly influenced by the color tone of the satellite photo, and the silhouette is evolved from the geometric structure of the buildings.” — Vivienne Hu

“Stranded was a nightclub in Sydney in the Eighties. For me, it represented an escape from a sheltered suburb childhood, a place where creative people came together to express themselves. We were a bit isolated from fashion and music and the Eighties subcultures that were emerging elsewhere. So people interpreted them in their own way. We were bowerbirds — we couldn’t find the clothes that others could buy so we made things. We ripped up tutus, we stole dad’s shirts, we found old pieces of lace — we tied, we tattered, tangled and frayed. I have been influenced as much by the ideas behind what we wore as the feeling of time in my life and what it represented.” — Zimmermann
