You likely already know about Zimmermann's adorable (and super-flattering) swimsuits, but lately the Australian label has been turning out edgy-yet-girlish everyday pieces—including vibrant plaid short suits and ladylike silk dresses delicately splattered with paint—that are just as deserving of your attention. It's all thanks to Nicky Zimmermann, who in 22 years as the company's designer has never done the same thing twice. "My goal is to always move forward not matter what," she says. Lately she's been working with metallic lace and other futuristic fabric, and we can't wait to wear the sure-to-be-striking results.
