It’s hard to pick a favourite from Zimmermann’s High Summer 2012 swimwear collection. The rich floral one-piece, an ultra-modern update on vintage swimwear if ever there was one, is not only a pool-side winner but the kind of piece that could easily double as a bodysuit layered under a maxi-skirt or denim shorts. And then there’s the floral bikini inset with delicate sheer panels. Like most of Zimmermann’s swim offerings, it’s steeped in a kind of contemporary elegance that’s both detailed and yet understated.
But if I really had to pick a personal favourite, this two-piece in a colourful geometric print that harks back to the ’60s would be the one. This isn’t your evergreen classic – but it’s the right kind of statement swimwear for 2012 that gets you noticed amidst the sea of summer prints.
Beautifully shot by Henrik Purienne on location in Malibu, and starring Hawaiian native Keke Lingard, the Zimmermann High Summer 2012 look book is worth perusing, regardless of which side of the world you’re on.
