For Spring/Summer 2005 Zakee continued to create simple, wearable garments with an innovative approach to print, fit and embellishment – exceptionally feminine clothes with an urban twist.
Entitled West Coast Desert Highway, the SS05 collection was inspired by a trip that Zakee made to the American desert. As always, Zakee’s love for the sea and the sky featured strongly, and photographic images of the sky at dawn and sunset were digitally printed onto silk as the Dream Cloud print. Alongside these are drawings of the mountains, skies and desertscapes. The Karokia print, which features on jerseys and silks, is a dedication to an amazing place that Zakee visited on her travels, previously a holiday destination for the likes of Ernest Hemingway.
