When sisters Nicky and Simone Zimmermann co-founded their Sydney-based design home in 1991, they’d no concept it could flip into one of the vital trendy manufacturers on this planet — beloved by A-listers like Beyoncé, Kate Middleton, Kendall Jenner and Margot Robbie.
What began as a easy swimwear and informal resort line has bloomed right into a worldwide empire, full with runway exhibits and shops all through the United States, Australia and Europe.
The label’s easy-breezy, female sophistication, combined with shiny hues and playful prints, oozes summer time enjoyable and has proved to be catnip for the elevated seashore set.
Zimmermann will open its seventh New York store subsequent month in Southampton, a sister retailer to its East Hampton outpost, which is already an area favourite. Here, Nicky Zimmermann shares her glossy — and oh-so stylish — picks for summer time.
“I first saw this ring in New York years ago and finally bought myself one, recently. I think it’s so pretty.”

“I always like to have fresh-cut orchids at home. They have such an intense color and each flower has its own unique beauty.”
“Vanda” orchids (two stems), $65 at Flowerbx
“This dress is a different take on a kaftan and has a real sense of ease to it. I love the deep color — it’s really beautiful.”

“We always like to bring Australian touches to our stores around the world and sometimes do this through our art selection. First Nations artist Beverley Rogers is incredibly talented and someone we often look to — she does the most stunning paintings.”

“Typically, I’m drawn to fresh, floral scents but, at the moment, I’m wearing this [woodsy-jasmine-saffron fragrance]. It’s a little stronger than what I’d usually go for, but I’m really enjoying it.”
“Baccarat Rouge 540” eau de parfum (35 ml), $195 at Maison Francis Kurkdjian
