Zuzu Kim Spring/Summer 2014 “Lakme'” Collection

Zuzu Kim’s newest Spring/Summer 2014 “Lakme'” Collection is inspired by the “Flower Duet”, the famous theme song in the opera, “Lakme” by Leo Delibes.

The floral that are seen in some of the latest pieces are wildly abstract and there are also plenty of vibrant “Botanical Melange” and “Prismatic Garden” prints, open scallop trim, solids in jet, Lilac, Verde, Ivory, and Iridescent dust.

The playful and unexpected combination of textures and masterfully draped pieces are artfully presented in each piece.

The daughter of the former South Korean Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Christina “Zuzu” Kim was raised around the world. ZUZU studied fashion design at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. An entrepreneur at heart, ZUZU started her own high-end women’s atelier in Chicago before being recruited by Phoebe Couture and Mary McFadden in New York. She was appointed head designer within one year.

A musician by nature, ZUZU is a self-taught classical pianist and studies piano performance at the Juilliard School. Kim started by making her own striking and romantic clothing for her performances. This evolved to her creating a ready-to-wear brand that embraces fashion and music, and a result of brainstorming, observing, and researching for over a year mostly in solitude. Her background, sensitivity towards different cultures as well as her passion for music brings a unique perspective to her design sensibility. It represents a lifestyle sophisticated yet fresh and universally appealing, the same way music communicates without boundaries.
