The Zimmermann woman ain’t got time for winter. Nicky Zimmermann knows this very well and so dived deep into her family archives, retrieving Super 8 film of summer holidays by the beach and the pool. “…My mum smiling and laughing, everyone seemed so beautifully dressed and elegant, despite the casualness of the occasions. There was the thoughtfully placed scarf in the hair, matched back to an easy feminine dress or a playful short and shirt set. I guess there’s a little something of the era that comes through in the collection, but I was much more interested in the mood that those films evoke. The flicker of the film, the flashes of golden glow, the happiness and the simple fun of the time.” Yes, we like that old school fabulous flicker and golden glow. Resort 2020 is a collection filled with nostalgia in those printed silk neck ties, long sleeved Chantilly lace white blouses and thick belted dresses. All the classic pastel pinks and soft sunrise yellows are here, bossy on pant suits and mini skirts. High top sneakers and bum bags are for the adventures and ever-so-slightly platformed heels paired with cane bags are for the parties. This girl means soft glamour, the right amount of sass for a summer spent in the heart of Beverly Hills where the collection was photographed. Next up she’s road tripping in an open top Mustang, blasting Lana Del Rey’s ‘Doin Time’ cover as she heads up the west coast to Big Sur. The Zimmermann girl is always on the move.
