Guideboat Mer Mediterranee Bikini Bottom
1946 Louis Réard
GUIDEBOAT MER MÉDITERRANÉE HALTER BIKINI
The halter bikini. True love found in ﬁne Italian fabric akin to the tricot of Monroe, Bardot and Deneuve. In ’46, Parisian engineer Louis Réard designed the ﬁrst bikini and Le Figaro wrote that wearing one “signaled a kind of second liberation.” Our Mer Méditerranée bikini is made of ooh la la fabric (the ﬁnest Italian stretch nylon) designed for comfort, performance and allure, the suit fabricated by a renowned European maker. It harkens to the French classics but is bettered by more than two savvy generations of swimwear knowledge, ensuring perfection in ﬁt, true quick-drying talents and enduring good looks. The top—a traditional triangle with spaghetti strap—is ﬁtted with removable pads and an elastic band. The bottom has a medium rise and medium coverage in back. Both are fully lined and resist pilling. Italian nylon blend, cut & sewn in Portugal.
