NOW NEW: ZIMMERMANN FALL/WINTER 2017-18
CONTROLLED TWENTIES FLOURISHES
Entitled “The Maples” collection after the building that housed students at the Women’s College at the University of Sydney following World War I, the new Zimmermann collection for fall takes its cue from old photos of women unabashedly mixing men’s-inflected pieces with feminine ones in an elegant and self-assured manner.
Infused with that well-documented Twenties vibe (think flapper girls in all their subversive glory), the new season brings whiffs of frothy silks with lace insets in paisley prints and painterly florals, adorned with the label’s signature girly details such as scallops, swooshy tiers, swishy layers and Empire waists.
Founded by sisters Nicky and Simone Zimmermann in Sydney in 1991, this much-loved iconic Aussie brand stays true to its original vision of sophisticated femininity, a passion for detail and a love of color and print. Early in its evolution, the sisters made the gusty move of fusing fashion with swimwear immediately hitting the right chord among the fashion elite, creating a new point of reference in flattering, feminine and stylish swimwear.
