Powerless before Zimmerman


April 29, 2009/2.23

A citywide power outage occurred as we were filing in for the Zimmerman show. All Fashion Week shows were then postponed until the power came back on. Luckily the shortage lasted only an hour, long enough to have a drink or three in the Rosemount Wine Bar. The collection that was finally shown was well worth the wait.
   Zimmerman’s summer colour palate was a refreshing change from the jarring brights we have seen from them in the past. What was presented felt more grown-up, more refined, and very classy. We saw Grecian folds of fabric in warm creams and light earth tones, muted Nana-inspired florals, and a brilliantly refined version of their flesh-exposing strapping that was noticeable on their bikinis last year.

Although I loved almost all from this collection, my wish list features these pants. The origami folding to expose the the legs is beautiful. I wonder if they do them in black.—Bronwyn Williams
