TW:

What was your inspiration behind this latest SS21 collection, the pairings of cowboy boots, poppy button-downs, and 70’s style bell-bottom pants?

N & I:

Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson. We love the eclectic mishmash!

TW:

There is a lot of messaging that is both outward and hidden. Can you give us more background about the messaging of Sober, Sober Up, I Love It, 13 , and the Smiley Face Smoking?

N & I:

We are living in a very SOBERING moment right now with the global pandemic and the re-awakening of centuries-old racial tensions which need to be resolved, changed and educated upon. We wanted to create a collection that is authentic with an edge of cool and ease. I LOVE IT is a call to forgive and change. 13, or triskaidekaphobia, is the extreme superstition regarding the number 13. For us both, it’s lucky 13. SMILEY FACE SMOKING is the understanding that we aren’t perfect, and that’s ok. We all have our vices. Similar today, like in the 1970’s, we are living in a profound time. Something old, something new. We are designing a collection that has longevity, that is sustainable.

TW:

Is there a connection between the lens colours of the sunglass and the messaging that adorns the sides?

N & I:

We love the red Cadillac in Fear & Loathing which inspired the new two-tone retro sunglasses.



TW:

If you could choose, what is one piece that is a must-have for this season?

N :

The emoji socks with heart terry slides.

I:

Pinstripe jacket and matching bell bottom pants.

A super bloom takes over the rear view of the iconic late-50’s Cadillac Eldorado, framing a pinstripe suit from the Spring/Summer 2021 collection.

TW:

We would love to hear from Ivan and yourself about working together. How did this duo come to be, and what is it like being a mother-son design team?

N:

We finish each other’s sentences. It’s symbiotic. Ivan started raiding mine and my husband’s wardrobe four years ago, styling looks for himself. He is the original gender neutral. It’s totally natural.

I:

Of course school comes first. I love music and I love fashion. Both are so intertwined. I am blessed to be able to share my voice.

Inspired by The Webster Los Angeles designed by Sir David Adjaye, enter a flush concrete oasis in the Natasha Zinko & DUOltd Spring/Summer 2021 collection.


TW:

How do you each influence each other in designing for each of your labels?

N :

We both learn from each other. Ivan’s youth is so pure it brings an unadulterated reaction.

I:

My mom keeps me focused and reality-based. Where are you going? What does it mean?
