Who better than to design a line of bikinis than Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover model Kate Upton?
Upton, 19, is using her knowledge of bikinis in a collaboration with Beach Bunny: the Kate Upton for Beach Bunny collection.
According to Upton, designing for her favorite swimsuit line in California is a dream come true, as reported by The Daily Mail.
Bech Bunny was just as happy to collaborate with the 19-year-old model.
She is sexy, yet confident and her fun loving and down to earth personality are traits that represent the Beach Bunny woman and brand as a whole, Beach Bunny CEO Angela Chittenden told The Daily Mail, noting how thrilled about the design collaboration she was.
I love all the embellishments and especially the lingerie details because they make you feel so sexy, Upton said.
The Kate bikini, with see-through bejeweled panels on the bottoms and a choice of ruffled or plain for the time, was first seen at last year's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Miami. In addition, the collection includes the Kate Fatal Flowers bikini, a black ruffled bikini with flowers, side-tie bottoms and jewels.
The bikini pieces will be sold separately with price tags ranging from $135 to $155.
