RAFW 2011: Zimmermann show

Zimmermann’s collection was the first presented at the Rosemount Fashion Week this year (RAFW 2011). The romantic sunshine light mood of the show was highlighted by flowing sheer fabrics in pastel colours and cotton voile floral prints. Yet the ethereal atmosphere of  lace, laser cut outs on natural feather light cottons was balanced by luxury leather pieces (similar to LMFF 2011 trends), artisan strapped sandals in tan and metal minimalistic accessories. Regardless the obvious influence of 70-s, the originality of the Zimmermann’s collection embracing strong structured silhouettes and whimsical natural fabrics is undeniable.

Trends: White on white, lace, linen and muslin cottons, cut-short tight pants (the first image), ultra short shorts, thigh-high side splits, romantic pastel floral prints and full leather skirts.

Colors: White, latte, mint and mustardy-orange.
