NYFW: Zimmermann Reimagines 70s Australian Soap Opera For Spring 2019
What isn’t exciting about the feminine boho styles of Australian-based brand Zimmermann?
Nicky Zimmermann works her mature-bohemian style seamlessly into any themed collection she releases.
Zimmerman’s show notes named 1970’s Australian soap opera “Number 96” as her Spring 2019 inspiration. The wildly popular series was most famously known for being the first show in the world to have an openly gay main character. The show also touched on taboo issues such as rape, drugs and marital affairs. For this collection, she used the racy 70s themes as inspiration for her carefree, sexy bohemian brand.
Between the few dozen looks rolled out for the new season, here are the five most groundbreaking in my eyes…
All My Friends Know The Low Roser
Always known to march to the beat of their own drum, the brand sent a model down the runway with a glimmering gold two-piece suit with a revealing crop too and low-waisted pants. I personally don’t want the low rider look to be revived, but Zimmerman found a way to make them look hot.
If you were paying attention to the racy themes of “Number 96”, the plunging necklines did not come as a surprise in this collection. The gold embellishments and zig zag designs up the middle made this look stand out to me in particular.
Cut It Out
This collection proudly showed off a myriad of scandalously cut-out tops, skirts, and dresses. Sprinkling just the right amount of Zimmermann’s signature sex appeal, they gave your ordinary lace top a run for its money with those delicately placed die-cuts.
In an over-saturated market of athleisure, Zimmermann imagined this version in beautiful pastel shades paired with delicate lace. Leisure wear has never been this beautiful.
The delicately crafted paisley patterns send me 70s vibes, but the combination of the warm cognac-colored belt and intricately colored paisley patterns on the shirt dress made it feel like just the right amount of modern for this spring.
