Aussie Invasion

Posted on April 2, 2019

Coming soon to South Coast Plaza are Australian brands known for vibrant patterns and hues. Zimmermann, the namesake Sydney-based brand, was founded by sisters Nicky and Simone in 1991. Zimmermann fused fashion with swimwear, creating flattering, feminine forms. Nearly three decades later, the iconic brand has remained true to its vision: “sophisticated femininity, a passion for detail, and a love of color and print.” Another Aussie brand, Camilla, was founded 15 years ago in Sydney’s Bondi Beach by designer and artist Camilla Franks, who creates bright, bohemian fashion inspired by far-flung travels and the spirit of adventure. Every Camilla piece is made with love, hand-cut, and with each crystal precisely applied. The brand includes women’s, men’s, and children’s fashion; swimwear; accessories; and home collections. The boutiques open mid-May at South Coast Plaza. 714.435.2000, southcoastplaza.com   Andrea Naversen
