The Australian swim and ready to wear label Zimmermann, owned by designer sisters Nicky and Simone Zimmermann, staged a very mystical catwalk show on the second day of the ongoing Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York.

Drwaing inspiration from the Tarot deck card illustrations by renowned American illustrator David Palladini, the duo accented the Spring/Summer 2015 collection with an abundance of layered ruffles, lace and metallic gold shimmer. The standouts included a criss-cross frilled asymmetrical lilac dress, a one-shouldered dress with blown up sleeves and a polka dotted sheer one-piece swimsuit.

The Manhattan-based apparel and fashion accessory label Rebecca Minkoff showcased a beach ready range designed on an earthy palette. The highlights included criss-cross strap flowing dresses, halter peplums, dotted button downs, floppy hats and slim fit denim overalls.

French clothing company Lacoste, under the creative direction of the Portugal-born designer Felipe Oliveira Baptista, stayed true to its nautical-inspired design heritage with its latest runway presentation featured on the third day of the soiree. Replete with streetwear style vibes, the range offered a mid-length drop waist vest dress in grey alongside some athletic striped T-shirts, sailor shirts with side zips and anoraks.

The New York-based fashion designer Mara Hoffman treaded a different path, as against her trademark kaleidoscopic prints, with a collection that was focused mainly on the use of fabrication and silhouettes. Titled as The Sunrisers, the line was created in a subdued palette and relaxed silhouettes in gauze, cotton and linen fabrics. The major attractions were an appliquéd short-sleeve white button down shirt paired with matching wide-legged culottes, a terra-cotta-hued bandeau dress, a checkerboard motif slip, a harvest print jumpsuit with cutouts and full skirts.
