Spoilt for choice: Zimmermann swimwear

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.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
