The cult swimsuits in movies

 The cult swimsuits in film


And if the latest collections of our talented designers were inspired by the greatest films ?


We necessarily all remember the famous red swimsuit of Pamela Anderson in the Baywatch series, but many swimsuits worn by our favorite actors have left their mark on us ! Here is a small selection of our favorites which you can find similar styles on our website ! 
. La Piscine 
Released in 1969, the film La Piscine is directed by Jacques Deray. It is at the edge of their pool in Saint-Tropez that Marianne and Jean-Paul interpreted by Romy Schneider and Alain Delon, spend idyllic holiday or almost. We follow the adventures of these young lovers dressed swimsuits. Alain Delon chooses the wild side while Romy Schneider opts for the simplicity with a black bikini.  
Our selection : 




. Suddenly, Last Summer

In 1959, Montgomery Clift and Katharine Hepburn are the partners of Elizabeth Taylor in the film Suddenly, Last Summer directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz.
Based on the play of the same title by Tennessee Williams, this work has left a mark on us by its incredible casting but also by its polemic side.
While Catherine Holly (Elizabeth Taylor) spends time on the beach, we admire this white one piece swimsuit, one of the major trends of Summer 2014.


  Our selection :


 . Monkey Business



Monkey Business is a film directed by Howard Hawks.

Released in 1952, Cary Grant and Marilyn Monroe play the Dr Barnaby Fulton and Miss Lois Laurel.
It is in the swimming pool that we find again our two actors with a broad grin. Our look stops then on their swimsuits which will not fail to inspire us this Summer.
