NYFW SS20: Zimmermann

WHEN we contemplate go-to fashion brands for the spring season, it’s inevitable that we think of Zimmermann. Started by a sister duo back in 1991, the Australian brand exudes a laidback ethos that’s blends seamlessly with the upcoming season. And the secret to behind this successful pairing has to be Creative Director and co-founder Nicky Zimmerman. With any project she sets her eyes on, Nicky Zimmermann draws inspiration from her own memories of summer holidays in Sydney, Australia. For SS20 Wavelength in New York, this influence of the past works to enhance modern design techniques, resulting in another stunning collection for the brand. 

Juxtaposed against a canvas displaying a breaking wave and ominous grey skies, Zimmermann’s exquisite SS20 collection boldly stands out. Models breeze past the audience sporting colourful boho dresses, skirts, playsuits and of course swimwear, all of which flow effortlessly without flaw. The palette for the Wavelength collection ranges from burnt orange and citrus greens to deep turquoise blues and eggshell whites. 

Each look is undeniable homage to the vision of Nicky Zimmermann, proving her artistic designs are not merely meant to sit still in museums or appear immobile. Rather, they are intended for movement. They breathe a sense of life into the person wearing them. 

Zimmermann is also known for sensual, yet decidedly sophisticated pieces. The SS20 collection is no different. Careful intricate tailoring creates unique textures, interweaving sexy sheer mesh with bold patterns. A notable trend among the collection are wide bell-sleeves and exaggerated shoulders, both of which create dynamic silhouettes. 

Fabric choices are also quite diverse for the Wavelength collection. Zimmermann features silky printed pieces alongside layered linens. Bold jewellery add dimension to several pieces, while silk belts help shape loose t-shirt dresses. Overall, each look definitely plays upon the inspiration of a high fashion surfer chick in the midst of summer.

If youre planning a vacation to Tulum, Mykonos or Ibiza next summer, Wavelength SS20 by Zimmermann has all of the laidback luxury needed to help accentuate your bronzed boho look.
