“If you feel good, you get good. Call it sartorial Karma.” -Nicky Zimmermann
The Zimmermann fall 2016 collection show at New York Fashion Week was beyond fabulous. The collection entitled “Mirror Mirror,” explored the connection between how we dress, and how we feel. Loved it!
The entire collection was uplifting, optimistic, and inspiring. The mix of prints, mixed metal jewelry, and texture offered a feeling of relaxed opulence which would make anyone feel sophisticated, fashion-forward, fabulous, and ready to take on the world.
Inspiration in the collection came from rich colors, prints, and textures found in India’s culture, and their architecture. Nicky Zimmerman translated the traditional use of reflective surfaces, and its playful effect with light, into upbeat designs which brought these elements together into a wearable, fresh collection which was luxurious, extraordinary, and downright incredible!
I fell in love with the thick, chain-linked chokers, luxe loungewear, wide leg trousers, flowing jumpsuits, amazing trench coats, bracelets, playful clutches, and her signature, voluminous dresses. Did you see those booties, and patterned clutches?! A-MA-ZING!
Do you see the pale blue, voluminous blouse with mirror detail pictured above? It is number one on my wish list for fall 2016! Talk about fabulous! Which pieces are your favorite from the collection?
