Zimmermann Summer 2012 Collection

For eons Brazil has reined supreme in the the bikini arena. Look Rio, we have to hand it to you, you’ve had a good run, but Lycra has a new daddy. We’re talking about Zimmermann Swimsuits, fresh from Sydney.

Spandex-savvy sisters Nicky and Simone Zimmermann are the wonder duo behind the curve-loving cuts dripping in delectable colors. The Sydney sisters spent the past twenty years honing their craft, garnering a cult following in Australia. Lucky for us they’re bringing their suits stateside, hawking the sizzling swimwear at their first shop in NYC’s Soho hood, which is currently filled with their most recent collection of tantalizing floral one pieces, delicately knitted bikinis, vibrant, silk wrap dresses and chic, high-waisted satin shorts (swoon!). We have to admit, the beach never looked so haute.
