THE OUTSIDER’S TAKE:
Elizabeth von der Goltz is buying director at Net-A-Porter. That means she has the inside track on what women all over the world are buying to swim in. She explains why our local heroes are winning ever more fans.
“Australian surf and beach culture has made a huge impact all over the world, from avo on toast and flat whites to, naturally, swimwear. It’s the appeal of the outdoor lifestyle that resonates globally. “Australian brands are leading the way due to the sheer amount of choice and variety in design. It’s about having a wardrobe of swimwear options. When it comes to design aesthetic, each brand has a different point of view but all seem to carry a relaxed attitude.” HER PICKS: “Zimmermann for their fusion of nostalgia with refined femininity, She Made Me for instant holiday mode and Dion Lee’s swim extension for its clean lines and simple silhouettes.”
