From humble beginnings selling dresses on a stall at Sydney’s infamous Paddington Markets, sisters Nicky and Simone Zimmermann have risen to fashion stardom as Australia's most successful brand in history. To coincide with the launch of their first London store, they called upon the best in British eyewear design to create their first ever capsule collection of chic, sophisticated sunglasses.
Inspired by the ZIMMERMAN woman in the cities that are home to their flagship stores - London, Sydney, Miami, New York and Los Angeles - the new frames are testament to ZIMMERMANN and Cutler and Gross’ joint passion for design, detail and unprecedented colour combinations. The collection consists of fresh, light acetate frames with contrasting temples: Olive Green is set with Rose Gold, Cinnamon Brown with Granny Chic and Crystal Black with Rose Chinoise to name a few. Created by hand in Cutler and Gross’ artisanal Italian factory, this collaboration represents both brands’ timeless yet playful elegance.
"I’ve been a long-time fan of Cutler and Gross and when the opportunity came up to collaborate on a capsule collection I jumped at the chance to work together," says Creative Director Nicky Zimmermann. "The colour combinations and styling embody so much of our aesthetic, and I love the way it’s come together. It’s a really nice way for us to celebrate our new stores in London, Miami and New York which we’re excited to open."
