This ready-to-wear Resort collection features an array of silhouettes. Including exaggerated hip shapes, boxy denim separates, full circle skirts, rolled sleeve shirts, and corset waists, “Matchmaker” pays attention to intricate details such as 3D sculptural flowers and paper daisy adornments. Each design element adds depth and uniqueness to the collection.

The inspiration for “Matchmaker” stems from encounters in Madrid and Paris, where Nicky Zimmermann witnessed people dancing in the streets. Immersing herself in candid photographs of dance halls from the 1950s, Zimmermann found a wealth of movement, vibrancy, and authentic connections that sparked her creative vision.

Embracing the spirit of nostalgia while infusing it with contemporary flair, Zimmermann’s collection pays homage to the dance hall era. From the Matchmaker Shirt Dress to the Daisy Midi Dress, each piece represents a modern interpretation of ’50s glamour and elegance.

Zimmermann’s reimagining of silhouettes and choice of fabrics further breathe life into the collection. The addition of petticoats under certain dresses creates volume and playfulness. While the use of silk linen and silk linen organza brings structure and fluidity to the designs.

The third look really stands out to me (pictured above on the left). This white linen doily dress carries an elegance that Zimmermann has perfected. The intricate designs of the fabric are simply beautiful, especially paired with the asymmetric ruffled skirt hem.

In the Matchmaker collection, Zimmermann revitalises the timeless allure of ’50s dance halls. She captures the essence of that era while embracing the spirit of modern glamour.
