The Aussie sisters are back with their signature designs for theirZimmermann resort 2017 collection, which is even more feminine than ever. This collection also showcases another side of the designer duo, which could be described as a more conceptual and unconventional fashion. The duo, whose aesthetics is always refined and greatly influenced by women’s approach to fashion in general, unveiled a few deconstructed, origami-cut pieces as well, which gave the entire line-up a certain most haute couture-eque touch.
Nicky & Simone Zimmermann, who recently had Beyoncé’s “approval” (she wore one of their proposals in her Formation video), are currently having a blast in the fashion industry, and their heavily pleated, ethereal and ladylike designs are getting more coveted every day.
Ethereal and lightweight are most of the designs you see in Zimmermann’s resort 2017 collection, which got skillfully decorated with a soft color palette of pastel blues, pinks and sun-faded earth tones. Black and white hues make their appearance too, although looking somehow less vibrant than usual due to the line-up’s overall delicate palette.
Fifties are the main source of inspiration, when it comes to the silhouettes and basic cuts exercised in this collection. “We looked at beautiful pictures of women in the Fifties at gorgeous resorts,” Nicky Zimmermann told WWD. “I loved how polished and elegant they were on holiday.”
The Zimmermann resort 2017 season is thus filled with both swimwear-like proposals and flirty cocktail dresses, which could make anyone stand out of the crowd at any in/formal event. Although layered frills and structured pleats dominate the collection, Zimmermann’s botanical patterns and delicate polka dots captivatingly inject a more playful vibe into the line-up, which is intertwined with a more haute couture-esque attitude when it comes to the more conceptual pieces.
Origami shirts, wide belts cinched at the waists and kimono sleeves not only overwhelm the collection with a strong sense of fashion, but are also easy to wear and combined with other pieces, letting us have fun with a fully unconventional haute couture style, or with a more high/low one. As for the latter, the sisters created high-waist shorts with circular lace embroideries that are nothing but cute and sophisticated.
In terms of more conceptual outfits, they treated us to oversized t-shirt dresses with side slits, billowy miniskirts and a revisited version of capri pants. High-neck shirts and jumpsuits succeeded in the sisters’ goal of creating something that could be both unique and familiar, reaffirming their astounding care for proportions and materials.
Lace, crochet and sheer embroideries complete most of the looks, adding a sort of naïve sensuality that reminds us of the Fifties, indeed.

We’re totally charmed and enamored with the latest Prada Charmed Ad Campaign. The bags are all worthy of our stares, attention and love.
One particular bag that we are eyeing from the Campaign is the Galleria Bag. Well-structured, simple yet elegant, this bag is perfect for your office work as its size makes it easier for you to carry certain documents.
The white color is particularly eye-catching for it looks absolutely pristine. Did you ever hear that white is the new black? Well, this applies to the Galleria Bag.
If white on the other hand doesn’t tickle your fancy, there are other color choices available: Laquer red, Caramel/Papaya, Papaya/Maple, Sun and Black/Light Blue.
This bag features a double leather handle for handy carrying, a detachable adjustable shoulder strap which makes it easier for you to wear it as a shoulder bag. It also has snap closure on sides and two outside pockets with zipper closure. The metal lettering logo on leather triangle is already a giveaway that you are carrying a Prada bag.
It measures 33 x 23.5 x 14.5 (L x H x W) cm and is priced €1800 euro via Prada boutique.
“My way of working on this fragrance was really not to try to make a unisex fragrance but really more to dive into men’s fragrance…and to show how well it could be worn by a woman,” said Polge, “So it was not to try to create an in-between fragrance, but a very masculine fragrance. And — like many other things in life — gender is given by the person wearing it.”
THE Fougere fragrance includes notes of lavender, rose, lemon, grapefruit, rose geranium, orange blossom, sandalwood, heliotrope, vanilla and musk. It is contained in a simple rectangular bottle, like others in the Les Exclusifs collection and will become available worldwide this month in 75 and 200 ml Eau de Toilette forms.
Less than a few months ago, we managed to explore an appealing, yet quite familiar, kind of futuristic fashion thanks to most of the SS 2016 fashion shows. Now that the newest Delposo resort 2017 collection has been unveiled, travelling in space will definitely be less sci-fi-inspired and more dreamlike and artistic.
For his Delpozo resort 2017 line-up, creative director Josep Font had two main sources of inspirations, which all lead to two different, innovative and visionary artists: George Méliès and Anthony Caro.
Often regarded as the one who for the first time ever recognized the potential of narrative film, Méliès was an avid filmmaker and magician, renowned for his erotic films and imaginary voyages. For his collection, Josep Font took Méliès’ ‘A Trip to the Moon’ film as the main sci-fi source of inspiration, embellishing his designs with the dreamlike atmospheres and bravery pictured in the movie.
As for Anthony Caro, Font literally followed Caro’s notorious quote “I touch with the eyes”, diving in the abstract sculptor’s work and ample usage of industrial objects (in doing so Font, who was originally trained as an architect, may have experienced a few nostalgic moments).
Dominated by rich vibrant colors, and accentuated with the abstract settings of the pictures, the Delpozo resort 2017 collection is playfully infused with starry patterns, which at times leave room for marine-inspired 3D appliqués and even stripes. Both the 3D embellishments and the stripes reinforce the whole sci-fi theme, here translated to a more ‘parallel universe’, Interstellar sort of scene, wherein everything is in a harmony and at peace.
Perfectly tailored and refined, the collection juxtaposes sheer, lightweight fabrics with voluminous and opulent ones, with the hems and the small details polished to the nines. Balloon skirts got combined with V-neckline sweaters with floral decorations, while the oversized, structured floor-length dresses featured goddess-like bell sleeves and wrapped lines. Ethereal collars got accentuated with lime and blue contrasting hems, officially announcing these colors the star ‘hues of the collection’.
Contrasting motifs play a huge role within the Delpozo resort 2017 collection in terms of both color-blocking patterns and materials. While the first thing we may notice here is that Font definitely had a good time playing with all of those color-blocking patterns, we may then quickly discover how skillfully he managed to combine tulle, sheer fabrics with silk, jacquard and cottons, making everything look even more delicate and romantic.
While sci-fiction is the line-up’s main theme, the collection also has room for romanticism and bon-ton in general, with the clothes featuring bows cinched at the waists and billowy pilgrim collars. Kimono-inspired ensembles confirm such a concept once more, with their exaggerated, yet always polished and refined figures and 3D appliqués dominating the scene.
Delposo’s cruise 2017 collection definitely radiates a strong haute couture allure and visionary aesthetics that may not be appealing at first glance, but surely remind us how captivating and hypnotizing Font’s creations can be.
Look effortlessly steamy and fashion-forward with the newest Mini City Steamer Bag from Louis Vuitton. A newest addition to the City Steamer family, this mini size is the smallest yet cutest bag from the collection.
Paying homage and respect to the House heritage while incorporating added signature twists, this Mini City Steamer Bag is such a steal. Made from smooth calfskin, the Toron handles with Dora handle mounts are useful if you feel like carrying it in your hands. Take note of the engraved and facette padlock, nametag, and the hot-stamped LV Circle on back for these are the highlights of this bag. The removable leather shoulder strap is also an added bonus for you can wear it in your shoulder or cross-body.
Aside from these features, we are also loving the good color combination on this one! The bright yellow color paired with the maroon-browish color is just the right amount of sophistication when it comes to a Louis Vuitton bag.
It measures 8.7′ x 7.5′ x 3.1′ (L x H x W) inches and is priced $3050 USD or €2100 euro via Louis Vuitton boutique.
