Made famous by the actress Jane Birkin in the 1969 film, La Piscine, this style of bikini, with its oversized resin O-rings, is hereby revived with the following upgrades: 

Without compromising the magically seamless appearance of the triangles, with no visible anchor points around the top's O-ring, I have managed to incorporate a continuous, strong, under bust band. Every Pride swimsuit, no matter how skimpy, should be suitable for body surfing, at least.

You will also find small O-rings in the backstrap. They're there so you can simply untie the halterneck and wear the top with regular backstraps. That's right: no weight on your neck.

Read about it in Vogue magazine.

 

The top features:

  • an adjustable underbust band, that can be worn loose when sunbathing, and cinched tight when high diving or swimming in surf.
  • an oversized resin O-ring.
  • wear as a halter-neck, OR, tie the straps to rings placed in the back strap and wear it as a bralette.
  • fabric lining as thick as the fabric on the outside. 

The bottoms feature:

  • over-sized resin O-rings
  • fully secured lining throughout the seamless front and rear panels, for comfort and to ensure the seams remain straight. 
  • self-lining, front and back, to even anatomical contours and prohibit the ingress of sand 

Materials

  • Self fabric and lining in matching 190gsm Vita from Carvico in Milan. It is 78% Recycled Nylon and 22% Xtra Life Lycra. (See technical data from the Australian importer).
  • All threads are UV and chlorine resistant polyester. 
  • For elasticity and endurance, 0.63mm treated latex is ran through all straps and opening seams.

 Credits

  • Each piece cut and sewn in Byron Bay Australia.
