Zimmermann Resort 2025 RTW: Crush

“I was thinking about the influence that 80’s coming-of-age movies and actors of the era had on my friends and I back when I was at design school in Sydney. Movies like St Elmo’s Fire, The Breakfast Club and Pretty In Pink. So many of our style cues were taken from Winona Ryder, Lisa Bonet or Molly Ringwald. We would rummage through vintage stores and create looks that mixed and matched the old with the new, menswear and womenswear – that was our entertainment on the weekends before we went out. For this Resort season we embraced the style and feel-good mood of these movies and tried to bring it together in a fresh, fun and modern way. We worked with soft focus floral prints, leopard print on silk linen organza for prom-like dresses, engineered lace prints – as well as lace as a key texture itself in both key looks and shoes. There’s lots of little icons inspired by the films that run through our details – diary extracts, cassette tapes, records and lipstick that come through in key artwork and in charms. Our denim brings more masculine influences in biker and collegiate jackets and oversized jeans. Tailoring has nods to exaggerated shoulders with twist details. I loved those movies – I still love them. They were fun and so was the style for me.”
