Femininity and Delicate Dressing at Zimmermann
SS ’17 Collection
I’m freelancing with WWD this New York fashion week and have attended some amazing shows. One of which was Zimmermann, a super refined Australian brand founded by sisters Nicky and Simone all the way back in 1991! I was 1 (and I won’t say how old I am now but that was some decades ago)! No offense to either of the sisters, I just mean it’s no wonder their collection was ingenious, superbly sophisticated and expertly detailed. I mean, talk about those lace and ruffle dresses + skirts. Or the pant suit they slyly added in for a subtle take on the menswear approach infiltrating the womenswear market. They even threw in a loose, casual printed crop top and matching flared pants (nod to pajama dressing? Check.) There were also flowing, ruffle tops and capes, or are they kimonos, or jackets? Who knows? Point is, it was all lovely and fitting for the wardrobe of a woman with a dominant sense of silhouette. Without a doubt, Zimmermann’s SS ’17 collection shaped a feminine, yet edgy personality and that is totally speaking my language.
