Their latest campaign for the resort swim collection has landed - and it's all pretty frills, plunging necklines and floaty poolside pieces that recall the carefree and languid days of an Aussie summer. Shot by photographer Beau Grealy with the jagged rocks and crystal-clear blue waters of the Greek Islands as backdrop, the campaign stars French model and Estée Lauder face Constance Jablonski.

Continuing their '70s retro bent from A/W, the resort collection features washed-out shades of khaki and burgundy, plus sports-luxe separates with mesh in-lays and the Zimmermann swim signature - pretty broderie anglais and vintage-look florals. Supported by a range of leather accessories in the way of sandals, bags and floral-embossed visors - consider this your motivation to get your summer fitness plan in action.

Zimmermann's resort swim collection will be available globally in the brand's stores and online at zimmermannwear.com from October 7.
