Zimmermann’s Resort 2017 Collection Channels Fifties

The Aussie sisters are back with their signature designs for their Zimmermann resort 2017 collection, which is even more feminine than ever. This collection also showcases another side of the designer duo, which could be described as a more conceptual and unconventional fashion. The duo, whose aesthetics is always refined and greatly influenced by women’s approach to fashion in general, unveiled a few deconstructed, origami-cut pieces as well, which gave the entire line-up a certain most haute couture-eque touch.

Nicky & Simone Zimmermann, who recently had Beyoncé’s “approval” (she wore one of their proposals in her Formation video), are currently having a blast in the fashion industry, and their heavily pleated, ethereal and ladylike designs are getting more coveted every day.

Ethereal and lightweight are most of the designs you see in Zimmermann’s resort 2017 collection, which got skillfully decorated with a soft color palette of pastel blues, pinks and sun-faded earth tones. Black and white hues make their appearance too, although looking somehow less vibrant than usual due to the line-up’s overall delicate palette.

Fifties are the main source of inspiration, when it comes to the silhouettes and basic cuts exercised in this collection. “We looked at beautiful pictures of women in the Fifties at gorgeous resorts,” Nicky Zimmermann told WWD. “I loved how polished and elegant they were on holiday.”

The Zimmermann resort 2017 season is thus filled with both swimwear-like proposals and flirty cocktail dresses, which could make anyone stand out of the crowd at any in/formal event. Although layered frills and structured pleats dominate the collection, Zimmermann’s botanical patterns and delicate polka dots captivatingly inject a more playful vibe into the line-up, which is intertwined with a more haute couture-esque attitude when it comes to the more conceptual pieces.

Origami shirts, wide belts cinched at the waists and kimono sleeves not only overwhelm the collection with a strong sense of fashion, but are also easy to wear and combined with other pieces, letting us have fun with a fully unconventional haute couture style, or with a more high/low one. As for the latter, the sisters created high-waist shorts with circular lace embroideries that are nothing but cute and sophisticated.

In terms of more conceptual outfits, they treated us to oversized t-shirt dresses with side slits, billowy miniskirts and a revisited version of capri pants. High-neck shirts and jumpsuits succeeded in the sisters’ goal of creating something that could be both unique and familiar, reaffirming their astounding care for proportions and materials.

Lace, crochet and sheer embroideries complete most of the looks, adding a sort of naïve sensuality that reminds us of the Fifties, indeed.
