Designer Nicky Zimmermann, one half of the duo she co-founded with sister Simone, said the spring/summer 2020 collection, dubbed "Wavelength", was inspired by one particular memory from her days attending Taren Point Public School, in Sydney's south.

"I love to show connection to a memory or something I can identify with … from where we’re from," she said from New York. "This collection is about being at school in December, you’ve done your exams, and the teachers [say], ‘You can watch a movie’."

In Zimmermann's case, that film was the 1966 Bruce Brown surf documentary Endless Summer. "It was about these guys who followed their passions, they travelled the world doing what they loved. And this beautiful vision of surfing. It’s always resonated with me," she said.
