Be A Bond Girl: Bordelle Swim Collection

When one of my favourite lingerie brands moves into swimwear, you can guarantee a flurry of activity as I book various beach holidays and plot my next move to Capri.  Bordelle, a provocative, dominant and sexy lingerie brand, have designed a collection of swimwear guaranteed to bestow on you immediate Bond Girl status.

Curve enhancing lines, a hint of bondage and inspiration from the likes of Honey Ryder (the bikini-clad entrance of Ursula Andress in Dr No is an unforgettable Bond Girl moment) makes for a stunning collection.

The aptly named Bond-Age bikini set (image top of post) comes with moulded underwire cups and side boning for added structure.  The set comes in three shades: black, ivory and poppy red each with shimmering honey.

For those who prefer a little more coverage, Bordelle have designed several beautiful one pieces, like the Olympia swimsuit (image below).  The piece de resistance however has to be the Bond-Age swimsuit, modeled on the brand’s signature hourglass silhouette and embellished with 18k gold plated hardware and an adjustable elastic overlay.  This piece can be worn in a variety of ways and naturally is high up on my Christmas wish list.

You may not possess a name that is a double entendre, but if you want to be a symbol of glamour and sophistication like a Bond Girl, visit Bordelle swim on their website here.

Bordelle lingerie is also available to buy on their site; in Selfridges; at Coco de Mer and Mise en Cage.
