The British It girl, model and actress—whose much-admired style has made her a fashion icon and ambassador for Chanel and Louis Vuitton—teamed up with New York City-based swimwear and loungewear line Solid & Striped to create a capsule collection of swimsuits ($190–$200) for Resort 2015. Fittingly, the Piscine Molitor, a swimming pool and hotel in Paris where the bikini made its debut in 1946, sets the scene for the line.

Sweet pastels and darling prints adorn both a cutout one-piece ($200) and bikinis ($200), including bandeau-style maillots ($200) and halters ($190).

The muse behind the capsule is Alabama Worley, Patricia Arquette’s untamed character in True Romance. “She's all palm trees, martini glasses, leopard print and flamingoes, which the illustrated flamingo print reflects along with the ice-cream, almost edible color palette," says Delevingne. "I wanted to use colors and silhouettes that would flatter any lady, but also ones that screamed holiday."
