It’s swimwear season once again, and Gigi Hadid just proved that the summer staple can be worn beyond the beach or the pool.
Earlier this month, the 27-year-old model collaborated with Frankies Bikinis, owned by her childhood friend Francesca Aiello, on a collection of swimsuits and loungewear inspired by Hadid’s life at their family home in Pennsylvania.

The first part of the capsule collection launched in May, followed by a second drop on Thursday, June 2.
It’s a 98-piece collection of swim and resort wear in various nostalgic and cottagecore-inspired prints in pastel and warm colors, retailing from $45 to $185.
“The opportunity to work with Gigi on this collection has been a dream come true,” Aiello told Harper’s Bazaar.
“We grew up spending our days at the beach in bikinis, so to be able to now design a collection of swimwear and loungewear—something that we grew up living in—together is really a full-circle moment for the both of us.”

“We designed this collection with so much love, and I believe that really shines through in the details within the fabrics, prints, and styles we chose to use. Both Frank and I have very social lives but also are big homebodies, and the collection really embodies that side of us,” Gigi said of their collection.
At the launch event for their new collaboration, Zayn Malik’s ex showed how to wear a one-piece swimsuit to a party. She opted for one of her designs, which is a blue and white swimsuit called “Fawn,” available for $185.
Done in Yomi Toile Blue, this one-piece swimwear is made from nylon and spandex and features a cheeky coverage, a low back, and dainty ruffle trims, creating a sweet but sexy design.

Transforming the swimsuit into the perfect party wear, Gigi wore it with low-waist straight-leg beige pants and a matching cropped long-sleeved shirt that allowed her to showcase her design.
The longtime face of Maybelline styled the look with several gold necklaces and a pair of gold hoop earrings.
She then carried her evening essentials in a Louis Vuitton Soft Trunk Monogram clutch in cloud blue color, which matched her swimsuit and glittery blue eyeshadow.
She further glammed up by adding a swipe of red lipstick and styling her blonde tresses straight, cascading down her back.

The Bulgarian cult brand collaborated with Gigi’s stylist Mimi Cuttrell to create these simple yet elegant pumps made of smooth leather and finished with 3.5-inch curved heels.
