Zimmermann Cocktail Dresses
EXCLUSIVE AT NET-A-PORTER.COM. Named after the Caribbean island 'Curacao', it's only natural that Zimmermann's dress conjures up images of sun-soaked getaways. It's made from broderie anglaise silk-georgette and trimmed with floral lace at each tier. The optional slip hits above the knee to ensure the floor-sweeping skirt feels light and airy.
Nicky Zimmermann looks to the post-World War I style of women attending the University of Sydney for Fall '17 - black and white images of students were the starting point for the collection. Cut from featherweight washed-silk, this 'Flounce Picnic' dress falls to a ruffled skirt that dips just below the knee. The slit back and square neckline call for a discreet adhesive bra.
"I wanted to make it pretty and beautiful, " says Nicky Zimmermann of her latest collection, adding that she wanted to create clothes "that girls put on and feel really special." Trimmed with crocheted lace, this 'Maples' mini dress is made from silk-organza - natural fabrics are really important to the designer - and embroidered with flowers. We love how the tiered skirt creates a flattering shape from all angles.
