The hot swimwear currently sported by It Girls around the world is the bikini by Kiini and Julia Restoin-Roitfeld smolders in the Kiini Yaz Top and Bottom. Created out of necessity by Turkish born designer Ipek Irgit, each piece by Kiini is crafted by hand from crocheted cotton yarn, elastic, and high tech fabrics using no ties, clasps, or buttons. The colorful crochet accents give the classic cut of the bikini a modern hippie vibe.
When asked about her inspiration, Irgit explained that she herself was in search of the perfect bikini, “Something different to what’s out there, looks cool and would also support my 34Ds… I really don’t like bikinis that are made with cheap materials that thins out or sags after a couple of wears or the ones with too much push up. I just really dislike padding. They are so annoying. People should stop being afraid of nipples.” The muse struck and Ipek Irgit invented the Kiini. She pictures the ideal Kiini wearer as, "Brave, open-minded and strong. In her words, 'someone not afraid of catching attention because believe me, when you wear a Kiini, it is guaranteed you will be stopped on the beach at least ten times a day'." Julia Restoin-Roitfeld is clearly a Kiini kind of girl.
