Studying the Motions 3: Zimmermann

Love for the Zimmermanns
I think Australia has just gotten on my must go to places.  This aussie dou behind the Zimmermann collections may not be creating science infused super clothes, but they are blowing my mind.  Its fun fashion that's wearable.  Their clothes are "out-there", but in a sugar sweet way.  I am amazed by the attention to detail and beautiful execution.

Starting with Spring 2016 collection,  the Zimmermanns made an interesting and amusing comment about their inspirations for the spring line.  In an interview with Nick Remsen, at Vogue, Nicky Zimmermann stated, "I love the idea of an underlying naughtiness with these classic fabrications,"  (  Her inspiration comes from Victorian fashion.


The back is laced up, like a corset, from the top of the shoulder to mid-back

The craftsmanship and fabrication continues to amaze me.  Can they please tell me where they get their fabric from!  There is also a great diversity of fabrics, while still staying in the same theme.  I love a designer that can tell a story, with out even saying a word. 

Fall/Winter 2016

Please watch the video, the photos do not do justice.

I have no words.  The clothes are so funky and different.  They are a little crazy, but in a refreshing way.    

Past Shows:
Zimmermanns kine eye for fabrics can be seen in their old shows, but there has been a clear change. They have done a wonderful job diversifying their collection and strengthening of story telling ability.  Though, they have always made beautiful clothes.

The craftsmanship is unbelievably beautiful. I love that blue.  This collection is the toughest that I have seen from them, but just goes to show they can do anything.

Studying the Motions 1: Fendi Spring 2013

I have fallen into a deep hole of old fashion videos.  I have watched at least 50 videos of old runway shows, features, and a few episodes of House of Style by MTV.  Sparked by my curiosity with Paris Fashion Week, happening now. I have been lucky, enough to see some of the buzz and change in the city, as I walk to and from class.  I am avoiding my responsibilities as a student, quite possibly running as far away as possible into the wonderland of the fashion world.

I just saw a feature on the Fendi Spring 2013 show.  I loved it! So much so that I needed to take note of it.  The construction of the clothes, shoes and bags were amazing!  I love the colorfulness and the shapes in and on the clothes.  Its fun, but in a wearable way.  Perhaps, a summer dinner and movie in the city park sort of way.

(I collection reminds me of the world of Rolly Polly Olly.  I used to watch that show as a kid. Ahh the good old days)  The inspiration comes from a 60's Italian furniture company.  (I can see that too.)
When the model walks, the color disappears and reappears. 


The beading and Fabrics for this show are amazing!!
