Tuesday Thrills - Zimmermann Swimwear

Summer holidays have officially begun here in the Southern Hemisphere, with clear blue skies and soaring temperatures. This is the best time to soak up the sun, lounging by the pool or at the beach. And if you're doing just that, why not dare to be different with Zimmermann's unique range of swimwear. Anything but your basic costume, this established Australian brand creates exceptional ladylike suits that enhance the female form with contoured silhouettes, pretty prints and all the finer trims.

For Summer 2011-12, Zimmermann have went the vintage route, with alluring antique florals, ruffled edging, corsets and halter necks. Swimwear has never looked this elegant. You can still be fashion-conscious and style it out on the sands with a designer suit that's guarenteed to turn up the heat. Each print is available in one-pieces, bikini's and throw-over dresses, so you can layer and chose a cut that you're most comfortable with. All suits are made from Italian lycra. Here are some pieces from their latest collection.

1. Collector Printed Lace bikini. Two-piece suit with delicate laser-cut lace frill over the bust. Comes with detachable straps. AUD $260/$258/R2175
2. Collector Printed Lace bikini in Bluebell. Moulded brassiere top with detachable halter straps and wide brief with laser-cut lace flounce. AUD $250/$248/R2090
3. Devoted Scallop Bikini. Antique floral print bikini with scallop frill detail and low wide brief. AUD $220/$218/R1840
4. Collector Printed Lace one piece. Multi-printed suit in hazy orange and blue shades. It has a laser-cut lace frill over the neckline. AUD $350/$347/R2925
5. Collector Printed Lace one piece in Bluebell. The intricate lace detail is more visible on this suave blue suit. AUD $340/$337/R2840
6. Devoted Corset. A vintage floral one piece corset, with grosgrain ribbon detailing along the paneled bodice. AUD $375/$372/R3135

7. Glasshouse Rectangle Link one piece. Colourful one-piece with gathered bodice, tie-up straps and rectangle-link detail. AUD $170/$168/R1420
8. Dreamer Plunge one piece. Something more classic to bring out your inner Bond-girl, this noir halter suit has a deep plunge neck and waist tie. AUD $165/$163/R1380
9. Savannah Belted Drape. A beautifully draped retro one-piece in a tearose print. Comes with bright pink belt & removable straps. This one is my personal favourite. AUD $325/$322/R2715
10. Rhapsody Cross-back bikini. Geometric block print shiny lycra bikini with black grosgrain ribbon straps. There are several types of designs in this vibrant print. AUD $210/$208/R1755
11. Avery Stud Underwire Bikini. We saw bird-prints all over the Spring 2012 catwalks, and now on swimwear. This one has black studded detailing and removable straps. It also comes in white. AUD $230/$228/R1925
12. Savannah Splice Frill bikini. A charming vintage-inspired suit in a tearose print with contrasting animal print shoulder frill. Mismatched suits are quite the trend this season. AUD $195/$193/R1630

Love the prints! :) xx

Bailey Schneider said...

They are so gorgeous ... The only thing I have an issue with and I don't know if it's just me... but spending over a grand for a bikini seems ludicrous. It's a tiny bit of fabric that covers the important bits, but that's it! I'm no scrooge, but I think the prices for swimwear is absurd :-)
Much love, Bailey from Vanilla Blonde

Denise said...

I looooove all of them! (number 10 not that much, but all the others are amazing in my opinion!) Yes, the south hemisphere is really soooo hot! Unfortunately I don't tan, I only get red... so that I normally don't go to the beach very much... but these pieces are really amazing!

Those swimsuits are gorgeous!! It's winter up here, but this post is making me want to take a beach vacation immediately! I especially like the one-pieces - I'm thinking about getting one of those this year instead of a bikini. So cute!

Sam said...

@Bailey, I agree with you that it is a tad bit expensive. I suspect it's because it's a designer brand and the state of our SA rand is dismal :(

@Filipa - maybe we can swop seasons - I miss Winter!

Puchi said...

I love everything Zimmerman... am getting the urge to look up my nearest Perth store. The one pieces in their range are stunning and in fact I believe I could find myself wearing one before the summer is out! In answer to your question, my current home is in NYC but we'll eventually move back to Melbourne. As to which city I prefer - hard to say as they are SO different. Long term, definitely Melbourne for the lifestyle. Short term, definitely NYC for the energy and pace.
