Runway Report: Zimmermann Fall 2015

The Seventies reverb is still going strong for Fall/Winter 2015, and if the iterations of the free-spirited folk rock era look anything like what we saw on the Zimmermann runway, we’re all for it. Opening with a floor length ethereal white dress, the collection’s bohemian romance was detailed with billowing sleeves and braided cutouts and paired with a collection of wide-brimmed hats that subtly nodded to Topanga Canyon’s artists, dreamers and desert explorers.

Sheer and vibrant op-art abstracts and flowing paisley prints paired with mixed lace, lattice and floor skimming fringe, while unexpected pops of turquoise, citron, blood orange, and fuchsia tied through the palette of pastels with added effect. Gold grommet details lined midriff cutouts, keyholes, and plunging necklines in a masterful display of subtle sexiness. The longer coats we’ve been seeing made an appearance, one in show-stopping pink fuschia that is certainly going to be added to a few editor wish lists. And we couldn’t not mention those paisley-swirled lace flares. Once again the Australian sister design duo have added moments of whimsy, longing, and fresh air to our New York Fashion Week line up.
