All hail the bikini...

Sizzling summer days and beautiful balmy nights are almost upon us, so what better time to celebrate the evolution of our much loved 'bikini'...

If there's one spot in the world where bikini history has been made, its the French Riviera....and if there's one person who popularized both the bikini and the region, its beautiful bikini icon Brigitte Bardot.

Emilio Pucci and the bikini = a genius combination...featuring sexy under wire tops, low rise briefs and his signature geometric print.

We adore retro swimsuit's and are so inspired by the vintage prints and a pin up styles...
