A wedding, a party, a beach vacation — occasions for a fancy dress or fun bathing suit and other festive things to cover it up are always on the Zimmermann client’s agenda. In that way, Nicky Zimmermann’s resort collection was true resort, a lineup of clothes that fill the demand for something special.


An effusively ruffled, cheeky one-piece bathing suit, for example, or a polka-dot embroidered cotton top, a casual belted white linen dress or an elaborately embroidered organdy dress with scalloped hems and sleeves. The look was bohemian — all the patterns came from Turkish rugs — but not generic gyp-set. Zimmermann’s novelty cuts and fabric work made for a collection of pieces with immense personal charm.
