Zimmermann The Postcard collection – my top picks

Zimmermann have released their Summer 2022 Resort ready to wear collection and I wanted to share my top picks with you here on the blog. I have to admit, Zimmermann’s 2022 Resort collection is one of the most stunning I’ve seen from the brand in a few years, which is a pretty bold statement given each collection seems to take my breath away each season!

My top picks from Zimmermann’s “The Postcard” collection

After 20 months of not being able to travel overseas for holidays, Australians are finally allowed to head back over to Europe, the US, Asia or wherever else takes our fancy. I feel that the Australian designer’s new collection, entitled “The Postcard” is aptly timed. The Resort RTW collection has a distinct “Australiana” theme which pays homage to the brand’s roots and evokes the wanderlust of travel. Iconographic travel images during the period of 1910 to the 1960’s by Australian graphic designer, James Northfield, adorn various items from dresses to shirts, harem pants to skirts.

There is a definite sense of joy and optimism that is felt throughout this cruise collection. Juicy and vibrant colours of watermelon pink, cool aqua, sunburst orange and ripe lemon instantly enliven the senses. Full skirts with petticoats, waist-cinching silhouettes, cool linens, embroidered flowers and ruffles adorn these delightful pieces which are quite simply, a return to “feel-good dressing up”.  After so many months of being locked down, these pieces herald the long-awaited return of taking joy in travel and dressing for the occasion! So here are my top picks from Zimmermann’s “The Postcard” Resort 2022 collection:

The Postcard boat neck mini

This textured cotton relaxed mini dress is heavily nautical influenced from the red and white stripes on the lower half to the delightful anchors on the buttons. I was able to try this on in-store a few weeks ago and found it did seem to run quite large around the bust area so you may need to size down in this. Unfortunately, when I tried on the size 0, the size 0P wasn’t available in-store, so I’m not sure if that would have been a better fit for me personally. It’s adjustable with gold buckles on the back straps and features a dainty tweed raw hem effect along the skirt’s pleat and hemline. I can see this being dressed down with a pair of casual white sneakers or flats and would equally work well with some white strappy heels for an elevated look. There’s also a matching mini skirt as well as a separate option.

The Postcard belted jumpsuit

An item which has been a firm favourite and it’s already sold out in all sizing online at the time of writing. A perfect for summer white relaxed silk-linen-organza jumpsuit featuring 1930’s seaside artwork from James Northfield on the trousers. It has a relaxed shirt style bodice and comes complete with a removable belt that has a raffia buckle. I can see this being worn with flats and a raffia bag – the perfect all in one easy to wear outfit for those casual summer days spent exploring or relaxing on the coast during lunchtime.

The Postcard lantern blouse

This confection pink floral printed cotton silk georgette blouse has only recently appeared online, and I’ve already added it to my Zimmy wish-list! It’s a relaxed blouse with elastic sleeves to accentuate the blouson sleeves, buttons down the front placket and a removable necktie with embroidered flowers. The delightful swirly pink print is undeniably feminine, and I would see this working well with basically any pair of light-coloured shorts, skirts or pants you have in your wardrobe. There’s also a matching cami which is included underneath the floaty blouse. I have a feeling I will be adding this one to my Zimmermann collection quite soon!

The Postcard empire mini dress

Linen is a fabric which is naturally featured in Zimmermann’s resort/cruise collections and this empire mini dress showcases this perfectly. The designer has taken the concept of a white linen dress for the season and elevated it to another level by incorporating an elegant boat neckline, elbow length blouson sleeves and lifting up the hemline a notch. The simple yet elegant design provides such ease and versatility with styling when it comes to footwear and accessories.

The Postcard high-waisted shorts

One of the items featured in Zimmermann’s campaign video for The Postcard, I first spotted these shorts paired with their new white crochet top and fell in love with them. In a joyful summery yellow & white floral print, they feature raffia trims and a matching belt and are designed in a paper bag style. Functional pockets and textured cotton with lining mean these will work practically as well as aesthetically in your summer 2022 wardrobe. There’s also a matching top and mini dress too in the collection if you adore the print for the warmer months.

The Postcard linen silk embroidered mini dress

Nautical influences are found throughout Zimmermann’s The Postcard collection and this mini dress is no exception. Made from a linen and silk blend, this dress features boat embroidery with a shirt front bodice design and casual cuffed sleeves. The raffia accented matching belt and matching coloured buttons ensure this perfect for summer-time dress is at once day appropriate with the ability to be elevated for evening by swapping out a pair of flats for heel.

The Postcard floral applique midi dress

The piece de resistance for me from the collection would have to be this stunning midi dress in ivory. This linen and silk dress which is fully lined features a square neckline, spaghetti straps and side seams pockets. Zimmermann have also offered up a matching crop top and midi skirt as alternatives to the midi dress. Design structure of the midi dress aside, it’s the delicate embroidered flowers in juicy fruit colours applied over the straps and dress itself which instantly draw the eyes. This is a statement dress for a summer of dreams!

Having already tried on one piece from the collection in-store in Sydney, I can definitely see myself leaning towards the lantern blouse and possibly the silk embroidered mini dress in white. Some of the items here haven’t been released in-store as yet (you can pre-order some from Saks Fifth Avenue website) but Zimmermann are slowly releasing new drops in-store and online it seems each week.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my top picks from Zimmermann’s “The Postcard” RTW collection for 2022! Which of these items do you like the best? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below. And also stay tuned as I will be sharing some new pieces I purchased from Zimmermann’s “Swim” 2022 collection over on my YouTube channel very soon!
