Like a massive wave, Zimmermann is growing steadily. Not only did the Aussie beach brand just open a new store in Saint Tropez, but it celebrated the event with the release of its first-ever menswear collection. Specifically, Zimmermann has launched a killer boardshort capsule for men, which consists of two cuts and four classic colourways. Fresh is hardly the word.
Offered in Zimmermann’s new boardshort capsule collection is the Boardie cut, which hangs just above the knee, and the Shortie, which ends at the mid-thigh. The two cuts deliver signature patterns in either burgundy, gold, navy or olive. In the construction department, the shorts are top of the line, and made of quick-drying, lightweight poly elastane with a suede-like texture. That’s joined by a square cut, top-stitched hip pockets, an elasticated waist, a cotton spindle cord, matching enamel eyelet, and quick-dry mesh lining. Put simply, the boardshorts deliver the best in material and design alike.
Regarding the new release, Creative Director Nicky Zimmermann said the following: “Growing up and living by the beach, the idea of creating something different with men’s board shorts has always sounded like something fun to work on. With the opening of the store in Saint Tropez this summer we thought it would be a nice time to bring a little something fun instore for the boys.”
Available online and through select store locations, the new Zimmermann boardshort capsule for men ranges from $195 for the Shortie and $220 for the Boardie.
