What’s a cozzie, you ask?
In Aussiespeak, that’s a bathing suit, aka, swimming costume, or a cozzie for short. Cause y’all know the Australians shorten everything, right? Brekky, rego, arvo, relo = breakfast, registration, afternoon, and relative. Anyway, enough with the Australinglish lesson.
The Zimmermann Cruise Swim Collection 2010/11 was just posted to the company’s Australian site, and don’t I wish I could get my hands on these suits for this summer in the States! I’m a huge fan of Nicky Zimmermann’s woven, corset detailing on both her dresses and swimsuits—it’s a signature motif that any Zimmermann fan can spot a mile away. The 2010/11 collection was a departure from the usual Zimmermann details, but still breathtaking:
Unfortunately, the most covetable pieces from the current 2009-10 swimwear and accessories collection (like the Raffia clutch shown below, and several bikinis) aren’t stocked by U.S. carrier shopbop.com. Net-a-Porter does have a limited, but still swoon-worthy selection of ready-to-wear and swimwear. So mark your calendars ladies—when the fall/winter collections drop here in the U.S., that’s when the latest Zimmermann spring/summer collection will launch.
