When one thinks about the perfect summertime dressZimmermann is the first name that comes to mind. The Australian luxury brand, Zimmermann, found the perfect place in the Hamptons, and opened its second boutique there this summer. The store is located in the former Southhampton Bank Building. Zimmermann tapped interior design company Studio McQualter and drew inspiration from the historic building’s rich heritage while providing a fresh revamp.
The interior exudes a sense of fun and summer, with vibrant colors all over. There’s also a touch of retro charm thanks to chic furniture from the 1940s that sits among artwork created by Australian female artists from down under.
“The Southampton store is fresh, optimistic, and welcoming,”Nicky Zimmermann, Nicky’s co-founder. “I love the mix of vintage furniture and Australian touches through our art selection.”

Zimmermann: “hints of nostalgia” in the collection and designed pieces that could be straight from a Slim Aarons’ photo or worn by Grace Kelly in To Catch a Thief.
