We’ve always been huge fans of Australian designer Zimmermann and when we went to visit their atelier earlier this year, it was settled, Nicky Zimmermann is a total frigging genius. Introducing her latest collection called Cloud Stompers, shot by Darren McDonald, styled by Tamila Purvis, and modelled by Stephanie Joy Field. Pretty magical, right?
“We wanted to present something that was soft and beautiful, but with a tougher veneer. I was inspired by some old photos of my Mum in the 50’s and got me looking at reference of different movements and subcultures – groups like Teddy girls, the Sharpies. I really love the detailed bauble pieces in the collection and the contrast with the moody florals.” -Nicky Zimmermann
The collection was inspired by “Beatniks, Sharpies and Teddy Girls,” according to Oyster Magazine, and the use of dark florals, tartan, and lace motions towards a kind of teenage rebellion.
