The Zimmermann Resort 2023 season dives into all things nautical and embraced the romance of sailing and the simple elegance and holiday glow.
“We worked with our artists to create jaunty sailboat prints, placement world maps and classic 50’s ikat florals. The mix of both liquid and sharp papery fabrics creates movement in our silhouettes, with some of the key looks opening up, almost like you’re walking through a breeze,” said Creative Director, Nicky Zimmermann.
Maritime influences take hold in the form of sharp linen suiting and crushed canvas twin sets featuring nautical stripes; rope belts, and anchor motifs – most notably in custom embroidered discs that embellish boxy day-shirts and capri pants.
Silhouettes take a ’50s twist as day turns to evening. Uber short minis are balanced with sorbet sheath dresses and tube skirts in shades of lemonade and lilac; adorned with 3D brushed cotton flowers and appealing in their simplicity.
Modern elegance is dialled up a notch with fitted sheer lace dresses modest in silhouette while revealing understated one-piece swimsuits beneath. A Zimmermann World Map artwork comes to life in sweeping skirts with matching blouses, worn unbuttoned with hands in pockets to insouciant effect.
Coloor-blocked enamel accessories and woven basket bags worn around the waist are stylish and functional for holidays spent galivanting. Add the season’s take on the boater shoe and prepare to set sail. Bon Voyage.
