Famous for some of the most expensive lingerie there ever was, Bordelle has released a collection of bondage-inspired swimwear – a first for the UK luxury lingerie label. Designer Alex Popa explained that although it's not as difficult to construct swimwear as bras, it was tough to simplify an intricate design concept.

"Sometimes simplicity is the hardest to achieve, and swimwear cannot be too overbearing to allow for maximum tanning," she said.

If you're wondering how bondage-inspired swimwear (think cut-outs and straps) is going to play out when you sunbathe, Alex has got it covered. "Bordelle's swimwear plays with the signature idea of strapping and the allure of harnesses on top of the swimwear." So no unsightly tan patterns, thank you.
