I had the honor of meeting Philippa Jenkings three years ago in Paris (where she resides). She is a real life fashionista, working for Louis Vuitton in Paris while at the same time designing her own bikini label.
Pippa Jenkings is her namesake bikini label, which was exclusively sold in the heavenly and paradisiacal Saint Tropez, and now is looking to expand towards new beachfronts like -the designer's native country- Australia, and Brazil. The bikinis are colorful, fun and full of prints, the brand describes itself as for a modern Brigitte Bardot who has the confidence to be unique at the beach.
These bikinis were first seen in the legendary CLUB 55 in St. Tropez, and Pippa Jenkings has been featured in several publications like Elle and Purple television, etc...
Pictures from her beautiful and latest vichy collection. Beautiful prints and a retro air, this collection is described in their website as a modern take on the French new wave scene is St Tropez in the 60s.
Pippa Jenkings' facebook page posted this picture on May 2nd of all of the lovely bikinis before being delivered to Club55. I love all of the different fabrics and colors, very liberty and all gorgeous!
What do you think of Pippa's lovely bikinis? I personally love them, the fabrics are so pretty and unique, the color palette si perfect for summer. The prints and designs are also incredibly cute and adorable, the ideal combination between retro and modern.
Have you heard of any other up-and-coming bikini designers?
Thank you for reading :)
