Whilst Zimmermann has grown ubiquitous amongst our summer closets, and Zimmer-swimmers have made for ultimate beach bag staples, next season we see the brand reveal their moodier side.

Floral frocks and feminine throw-overs dominated the spring / summer collection (in a way that Zimmermann does best, with beautiful fabrics, attention to detail and cutaways here, there and everywhere). Transitioning into colder temperatures – and a generally more sombre season all round – the next collection offers moodiness and sultriness, and evokes a sense of illicit beauty.

Fusing subtle ‘20s nostalgia with a modern hint of exotica, Rebellion Is The Night brings with it French lace, opulent velvets and custom-woven brocades, for both visual and tactile effect. Add to that the beauty of oriental botanical print, the sex appeal of bias-cut silk, and Zimmermann’s unmatched ability to empower the female form, and you’ll perhaps start to see the allure.

Sophisticated yet identifiably defiant, it seems the Zimmermann winter woman is far more empowered than her breezy summer predecessor. Males, you better watch yourselves.
