Love is in the air, and that is simply the mood for Zimmermann’s Resort 2021 collection, titled & Lovestruck. The brand is taking us on holiday (diving deep into our imagination thanks to 2020) with a collection filled with brilliant, vivid colours and a whole lot of free-flowing, tiered ruffled dresses. A Zimmermann girl’s dream. Adut Akech is that ultimate Zimmerann girl this season, smiling big and dancing hard. “For most of our collections I usually start with a very specific reference and something that’s personal to me,” said Nicky Zimmermann. “A memory, or a story or a specific muse. But this Resort season I approached the collection solely with a mood in mind – I wanted it to be optimistic and fun. Every artwork, texture, embroidery and detail has been designed through that lens. I thought about emotions and experiences that make me feel happy – love, special life moments, great times with friends and holidays with family. These ideas have come through in many ways but particularly in our use of colour and in print combinations. There’s a little bit of escapism in here for sure.” Zimmermann have recently committed to ensure constant diversity and inclusion in campaigns, in stores and across all facets of the brand, as well as promising donations to the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund and the Aboriginal Legal Service here in Australia.
