Zimmerman’s Spring Catwalk show for 2022 explored the many different sides of The Dancer. The collection is a pas de deux of binary concepts – strength and fragility, movement and structure, dark and lightness, self-discipline and creative intuition.
Inspired by the empowering elegance of dance, what better way to showcase the collection than to collaborate with Harlequin, the performance floor of choice for the world’s most prestigious dance and performing arts companies!
Ballet is a central theme in this floral collection, inspiring bodysuits and chiffon skirts worn with wrap cashmere tops, and heels with ankle-tied ribbons.
“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.”
Creative Director, Nicky Zimmermann
Having worked together on numerous projects, Harlequin were proud to work with Rizer and Zimmerman again to showcase Zimmerman’s new Spring collection.
The set consisted of a curved LED wall and roof along with 630sqm of our Harlequin Hi-Shine white vinyl floor, creating a reflective environment with various colours from the LED lights.
Filmed on location in Sydney, the show was produced by Rizer in collaboration with Photoplay.
Harlequin Hi-Shine is a brilliant choice for any occasion and it worked particularly well for ‘The Dancer’. It has a unique high gloss display surface which provides a breath-taking reflective finish creating a sleek and elegant look with excellent scratch-resistance.
Zimmermann usually presents all their collections during New York Fashion Week but for ‘The Dancer’ they decided to have a digital presentation online.
