Style Melbourne

Mister Zimi Pop-Up Shop

Zoe Paul started her label Mister Zimi (a confusion of her and her husband Jimi’s names) when a tailor made leather jacket she brought home to Melbourne from a Bali holiday resulted in a flood of orders from friends. These days Zoe lives and works in Bali, venturing back home regularly to showcase her designs. And the collection has rapidly expanded to, not just fabulously priced authentic leather jackets, but a full line of maxi skirts, shift dresses, handbags and shoes. However the best part is yet to come…

Mister Zimi is sold only online. However Zoe has eliminated the main downfall of online shopping; regular pop-up shops allow you to try on different sizes and styles in real life before ordering so there’s no risk of being forced to return the piece. Mister Zimi’s clientele can also be more hands on with the design process; customising each piece by choosing from a range of fabric colours and prints or by altering pieces as needed, a shorted hemline here, no pockets there. The experience is almost like having your very own personal designer on call.

The latest Mister Zimi collection is quite bohemian and worldly in leather, suede and silk, featuring some great prints. I’m fond of the silk gypsy cardi (more akin to a kimono top than a cardigan), the on-trend, printed maxi skirts, and naturally the leather jackets that started it all.

The Mister Zimi pop-up shop is open from now until Sunday 15th May from 10am-6pm weekdays and 11am-5pm weekends at 1 Earl Street, Windsor (just off Chapel Street).  Get in quick as Zoe and Mister Zimi won’t be back in town again until much later in the year.

    Can you please keep me informed the next time your in melbourne, would like to visit pop-up store.

  2. Hi Nic. You’re probably best to tell Mister Zimi that directly. We’re an online fashion publication not their official website, so the label wouldn’t monitor this page.
