The Wall that has
is the same wall
we are to project our hopes.
in all its solidarity,
does not permit us to see beyond it:
until we realise
The wall is also
a blank canvas…
Cult Australian brand St. Agni is dipping a toe into the world of swimwear. Introducing The Wall, a collection collaboration by St. Agni and fellow Australian swimwear brand Ziah.
The new collaboration came to fruition through an intimate scene. St. Agni was Ziah’s first stockiest, with founder Erika Toscano later joining the team as head designer. After years working together, it was a natural progression to incorporate Ziah into St. Agni.
St. Agni Founder Lara Fells notes, “We were buying Ziah in-store and I could see how well the brands worked together. We were looking for a designer to come on board so it made sense that Erika would do it. Everything fell into place very naturally.”
Designer Erika Toscano founded Ziah in 2015 with a vision to create authentic swimwear that honours the female form. Celebrating different shapes of the body, Toscano chose to look at swimwear instead as wearable poetry, acknowledging the way the right cut and curve create timeless and beautiful design.
The Wall collaboration collection was crafted in Australia from the finest textiles, creating quality pieces that feel sensual and luxurious against the skin. Featuring sculptural one pieces, flattering bralettes, high waisted briefs, petite bottoms and more in a muted earthy palette of ecru, caramel, olive and black.
The dreamy campaign shoot stills were lensed by photographer and RUSSH favourite Claudia Smith and stars incredible face Ajok Marial. Shot against a while wall, with a quintessential summer backdrop of blue skies, seas and rocky shores, the classic and minimal styles transport you to an exciting summer ahead. The intimate film directed by Cai Leplaw extends the sentiment of the stills, with moody shots and close ups of the incredible pieces.
A considered approach to swimwear, to wear from the pool, to the beach and beyond. Watch the campaign film below.
