Zimmermann SS15: Floaty, Feminine Freedom

Australian-based Zimmermann, founded almost 25 years ago in Sydney by sisters Nicky and Simone, called its Spring/Summer 2015 collection “Tell Me, Seer,” and the clothing spoke loud and clear — well, actually whispered softly yet strongly — about the future of fashion for the upcoming season. The words that echoed in my ears were frilly, feminine, floaty, fun to wear. And oh so very, very pretty. Plus, as a mix of swimwear, daywear and evening wear (loved the trench-coat topped long dress), the collection spoke to so many different levels of dress.

Dresses swayed elegantly down the runway, crafted with asymmetrical handkerchief hems. Jackets fit sculpturally, cinched and sashed at waists. Swim suits stepped out ruffled, cut-out and seemed more like bodysuits, in many cases. Patterned chiffon inset with asymmetric panels of lace, was ruffled, long and left simplicity in its wake. Metallics gleamed and glistened. A soft palette of pale peaches beckoned.

Stevie Nicks, do you hear me?!
