If there's one brand that comes to mind when the words 'summer wardrobe' are said, it's Zimmermann. The Australian brand, co-founded by sisters Nicky and Simone in 1991, is the epitome of holiday chic. Floating fabrics, feminine silhouettes and perfectly pared back colourways expertly come together in every dreamy collection and the world's style set are taking note with the likes of Rose Byrne, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Kendall Jenner having worn the brand.
This season's collection is entitled Stranded, taking its inspiration from a nightclub of the same name that the sisters used to visit in the 1980s in Sydney. Located underground in an arcade, it represented a cool escape from their suburban upbringings with Nicky explaining that it was "a place where young and creative people came together to express themselves." Inspired by the people they met there and the emerging style scene of the decade to which they had limited access, the sisters began to make their own clothes. "We were bowerbirds –we couldn’t find the clothes that others could buy so we made things. We ripped up tutus, we stole dad’s shirts, we found old pieces of lace – we tied, we tattered, tangled and frayed." The result is a collection brimming with beautiful separates, dresses and jumpsuits that were made for the modern, fearless female.

And taking the collection one step further, the brand has designed an exclusive capsule for Ounass.com for S/S17. Comprised of six pieces - three dresses, a top, a skirt and a jumpsuit - the capsule serves an extension of the mainline and features all of the same fabulous brand trademarks like waterfall hemlines, dusky floral prints on soft silks and cool-girl silhouettes (think low-slung wrap skirts and high neck blouses).
