SHOP THE ZIMMERMAN RESORT 2020 COLLECTION
Nostalgia is a key component of Nicky Zimmermann’s design formula for the Resort collection.
January 30, 2020
Shop the interactive Zimmermann Resort 2020 collection inspired by old Super 8 films of designer Nicky Zimmermann’s family by the ocean or at their pool, hosting a barbecue and hanging out with friends. She evoked the fun-loving mood she felt when rewatching the old films, explaining “the flicker of the film, the flashes of golden glow, the happiness and the simple fun of the time.”
Zimmerman’s new designs are cheerful, weaving in a very classic sensibility via her use of tailoring. Some of the brightest pieces included a linen safari shirt dress and a ’70s-style rust-colored wide-leg pantsuit with thick white piping.
A folksy white dress with grosgrain ribbon detailing looks like something a young Sharon Tate might have worn many decades ago. The designer used retro floral prints from those days in a smart way for 2019: on minidresses, belted skirts, and ruffled pussy-bow blouses. Zimmermann knows how to bring the past into the present by blending throwback colors or silhouettes with cuts and fits that are relevant today.
