As we pull into the warmer months a whole herd of swimwear labels release their new summer collections of cute cozie to bath in during the hotter months. Perhaps one of first Australian swimwear brands to create sexy suits that are both fashionable and functional is Sydney label Zimmermann.

Maintaining their signature style of chic swimsuits - that are still wearable for riding waves or rolling around in the sand - is their spring/summer 2011 collection Cruise Swim. The collection includes new styles with strapless, lattice back and shoulder-cut one pieces, and high-waisted, bandeau and triangle two pieces in brash colours such as acid and sapphire.

One of our favourite pieces is the Copy Cat Waisted D Ring Bikini in bronze.
