Swimsuit Model Candice Swanepoel Wants To Design Bikinis
We sincerely hope you’ve been hitting the gym lately, because Candice Swanepoel, Victoria’s Secret Angel and certified bombshell, is looking forward to designing a line of itsy bitsy teenie weenie (maybe even polka dot!) bikinis.
The South African model and face of Prabal Gurung‘s Spring collection talked to W about her early days modeling for Victoria’s Secret, where she plans on spending her holidays, and how she keeps her body in tip top shape. She also mentioned that designing a line of capsule collection of swimwear is ‘in the pipeline’.
Swanepoel first walked for the label in 2007, earning her Angel wings in 2010, so she is hardly unfamiliar with the ins and outs of skimpy beach wear. As for how she visualizes the line looking:
There’s a couple of ideas that I like. It’s inspired by Brazil — how small [the bikinis] are … the backs are just so much more flattering. I love that small triangle … all the colors … there’s so much you can do with swimwear.
Ah, yes. The less fabric, the better. That is – if you look like Swanepoel and co.! Otherwise that statement might not quite hold true.
