Be the "Ringmaster" of your style, something that designer Nicky Zimmermann and her sister Simone pushed as they left fashion viewers amazed with their Spring Ready-To-Wear 2014 Collection this past Friday at Lincoln Center. Zimmerman took on the moody and enigmatic language of the circus for Spring 2014.
Exuding a sultry strength, the show walked a tightrope between the whimsy of an age-old art and dominant sophistication of an entirely modern attitude. Youthful optimism was brought to life through a lavish use of material in flippy ruffled collars, paper bag waists, handkerchief hemlines and full circular skirts that dance with every moment.
Color was injected as one was looking at old pictures, dreamy, feminine hues sofetning a bold base of black and white. Completing this theatrical presentation are cage-like neck pieces and cuffs with oversized square stone pendants, pointe-inspired shoes with wide elastic tied around the ankle in a flat bow, and fold-over clutches in supple pony hair that slouch into the arm.
