Following my recap of the Tadashi Shoji and Mara Hoffman shows at New York Fashion Week, today I’m thrilled to share one of the hottest labels (Olivia Palermo is a major fan). Ladies, you’re in for a treat – this is the stunning Zimmermann Fall 2015 collection…
I am always fascinated by stories of where designers gain their inspiration and Nicky Zimmermann painted such a beautiful picture with hers, “I have vivid memories of growing up in suburban Sydney and my parents hosting, what I thought at the time, were very glamorous dinner parties. It was less about the clothes and the setting, and maybe more about that feeling of excitement and sense of occasion, which created a starting point for the collection. I’ve worked with an offbeat but dynamic colour palette influenced from various interiors references of the 60s. This season I wanted to work with a more streamlined and elongated A-line silhouette so the collection was more structured, and less free and flowing than last season”.
Exuding bohemian luxe and an ethereal whimsy Zimmermann is renowned for, the collection features paisley prints, soft pastels, chic pops of rich color, lace, gold embellishments and of course one of the most fabulous hat collections I’ve seen in a long time (further fueling my addition to this must-have accessory).
In addition to stunning clothes, fashion week is also pivotal for setting the direction for beauty and hair trends. Zimmermann’s nod to 60’s style was infused with modern execution of bold black eyeliner, nude lips and soft hair pulled back into loose pony tails.
A scan of those coveted front row seats found none other than style queen Olivia Palermo, as well as starlets including Jessica Szohr, Jess Hart and Alexandra Agoston.
I’d love to know your thoughts, what are your favorite pieces in the collection? I am obsessed with all those incredible coats – the colors are perfection (I need that long pink coat, pictured above, in my life)! I’ve proclaimed my love of effortless style many times and season after season Zimmermann embodies this implicitly. You can find and shop the entire Zimmermann collection here!
