Zimmermann could not host a presentation this season due to the coronavirus pandemic. In these extenuating circumstances, Vogue Runway has made an exception to its policy and is writing about this collection via photos and remote interviews.
Nicky Zimmermann titled her new resort collection “Lovestruck.” It was designed to conjure happier times than the ones that we’ve lived through these last few months, amidst a pandemic exacerbated by the American president and unrest around racial inequalities. Zimmermann’s collections are never not upbeat. She is an optimistic, sunny person, and it came through here in the bright, bubbly heart and peace sign prints, as well as in the pretty palette of deep greens and soft pinks. She didn’t skimp on her signature flounce either, though it was nice to see more pared-back pieces like button-down blouses and a sharp baby blue suit in the mix.
Zimmermann’s innate flair and whimsy have turned the brand into a destination for women shopping for their vacation wardrobes. But her dedication to sparking joy feels even more essential at this moment. Ebullient fashion can’t save the world, but it can provide brightness during a dark time. When we someday re-emerge, this resort collection will lift our spirits and dress us up for very happy gatherings.
