Zimmermann SS18

We can always count on Nicky Zimmermann to deliver a beautiful, feminine lineup of key pieces, and spring was no exception.

“This time, I wanted it to be light and sunny, which to me, is very Australian,” Nicky said backstage with excitement. The Aussie designer saw photographs of her parents’ honeymoon on Queensland’s Gold Coast, which inspired the colour palette and vibe of the collection.

This translated into vibrant floral yellow prints on white backgrounds in everything from purple and aqua to citrus and pink combos — done in either super short or long flirtatious dresses with puff sleeves and her signature nips and details. Meanwhile, Zimmermann provided clean slate moments via white linen looks such as a button-down shirt and matching trousers, and lace dresses with graphic appliqués. “We experimented with the appliqués and French knots — it’s all done by hand — it’s a bit bolder and heavier rather than delicate but still pretty,” she explained.
