“This season we explored the ideas of strength and fragility. We thought about dance – an appreciation of the power and athleticism, the graceful movement and fluidity of a dancer on the stage. It was also an opportunity to look to nature and all its beauty and resilience. These influences shaped the way we approached each element of the collection; we tried to create a feeling of balance in each look,” explains Creative Director Nicky Zimmermann.
But despite the brand’s huge international presence, the beauty look still felt distinctly Australian. Makeup artist Noni Smith created what can only be described as dewy, glossed skin that looked fresh-from-the-ocean. Lightweight tints and concealer was presumably used in lieu of traditional foundation, while highlighter and sheen were worked into high points.
The eyes were washed with a sandy taupe, and just a little chocolate liner was smudged across the lash line. It was finished with soft inky lashes and a strong brow — simple, chic but still laid-back enough to be seen on the streets Bondi.
Finally lips, like skin, were bare, hydrated and glossy.
Hair, led by Renya Xydis for WELLA PROFESSIONAL, was natural, easy and in line with each model’s texture. From sleek blow dries to air-dried curls, again it was elevated but easy, accentuated by bold ear cuffs and silk neckerchiefs.
It was soft and airy — exactly the kind of romantic but polished Zimmermann girl we’ve come to love. Offset with frothy tulle dressed, touches of tailoring and water-coloured prints, it was another inspiring look from the local fashion house.
