A soft turn: Raquel Zimmermann

With the skirmish of rival colours in almost every wardrobe this season, it’s getting difficult to set eyes on something that’s minimalistic and soft. But this editorial acts like a warm cup of tea that comforts you, makes you nostalgic but still keeps you in concert with the present times. In this case, spring 2011 trends.

Raquel Zimmermann characterises retro sensuality with a kiss of maturity. This editorial in Elle Brazil’s August issue is about embracing spring with a muted yet rational wardrobe. Loose palazzo pants in crisp white and pasty floral, summery crochet dresses and crop tops. This summer, if it’s not simple, unadorned fabric, then it’s a clutter of foliage and tropical bird prints.

Zimmermann’s stunning charm set against soft, pastel background is precisely what the new season swears by, the romantic allure of sultry days and balmy nights. The 1950s-inspired styling emphasises on femininity, sophistication and prudish glamour.

Her hazelnut hair colour with voluminous curls add to the fun element to summer, because isn’t the most important expression of this season, after all?
