Australian brand Zimmermann is already known for their structured, sleek designs that always throw in a touch of whimsy and beach inspiration. (Our very own Katherine Power has been known to wear their summer dresses on her ultra-chic beach vacations!) But with their Resort 2015 lookbook, the label has really taken their game to the next level. It's just gorgeous.
The collection, which features plenty of designer Nicky Zimmermann's penchants for perforation, oversize fits, and the color white, is styled to perfection in the lookbook, which has us dreaming of a far-away journey to somewhere warm, sunny, and (above all) exotic. This is appropriate, since the collection takes most of its inspiration from Bali.
"It's about childhood holidays in places like Bali," designer Nicky Zimmermann told us at a Los Angeles presentation of the collection. "The women there wear a traditional look of white embroidered lace shirts with really beautiful sarongs, it's that Hindu dress with beautiful hair with flowers in it. The prints are Batik-inspired; we worked with a New Zealand artist, doing different things layering prints on prints. We wanted it to look Batik but a modern, new interpretation."
While Zimmermann may have initially risen to notoriety in the fashion world for her impossibly stylish swimwear, it's clear she's transcended far beyond that into a brand that can compete with the best of the best when it comes to styles that elevate a woman's style from pedestrian to wearably high-fashion.
