Australian brand Zimmermann is celebrating its “Ten Years of Good Times” at Net-a-Porter, along with its 25th birthday, launching an exclusive capsule collection now available at the luxury retailer with prices starting from $275. Zimmermann’s capsule collection for Net-a-Porter is absolutely holiday-ready, featuring 11 pieces you can fill your summer wardrobe with!
Launched onsite back in 2006, the partnership of Zimmermann x Net-a-Porter is a strong and profitable one, with Net-a-Porter’s customers always interested in the Australian label’s new offerings and signature swimwear pieces. All of Zimmermann’s staples exude cheerful and jocose vibes, often translating to beach-ready and summer parties-approved proposals.
Zimmermann’s summer 2016 capsule collection for Net-a-Porter is no less so, with each piece inspired by these past 10 years of fashion statements sold at Net-a-Porter.
“We were inspired by the idea of ten years of amazing travel, ten years of great parties and ten years of long summers. It was nice to go back through some past collections and find those little details in an embroidery, or the cut of a swimsuit or a silhouette that still felt right for now.” commented Zimmermann’s creative director and designer Nicky Zimmermann.
Overwhelmed with sun-soaked colors and gentle boho-chic embroideries, this ‘Ten Years of Good Times’ collection focuses on flared, relaxed lines and lace appliqués, the patterns of which display either sheer, sensual motifs or floral, Seventies-inspired embroideries.
The line-up features three swimwear pieces, namely a one-piece and two bikini sets, and eight cover-ups/frocks, which all follow a common boho-chic fil rouge, yet greatly varying in shapes, lines and cuts from one another. As for the common shapes, the garments alternate long zigzagged hems with asymmetrical cuts, completing the looks either with billowy, butterfly sleeves or short, laced ones.
A short kimono wrapped dress will particularly catch your attention, along with a long, bon-ton burgundy frock that is perfect to show off at any elegant summer event (reinvented from a frock designed for a resort collection a few years ago). Although mostly solid-colored, the collection features a retro printed dress as well, the patterns of which recall those of the low-waisted bikini.
The swimwear pieces greatly vary in style too: while the one-piece staple is spiced up with sheer inserts, the bikinis are either low- or high-waisted, either with a bandeau or a balconette top. While the first one is surely the more captivating and fresh, the latter will just be perfect for anyone who is looking for a Fifties-inspired bikini.
Although comprised of only 11 pieces, the collection is extremely diverse for a good reason, and is here to let us express ourselves to the fullest, in the best and most fashionable way.
