Her latest 11 piece swimwear collection features a range of swimsuits, bikini’s and cover ups to help you build the perfect summer look. The sizzling hot campaign, shot on location in sunny Mallorca, features Myleene looking stunning modelling the new collection. We caught up with Myleene to get the inside scoop on her new designs and her own summer style…
What inspired this collection?
Joan Collins circa dynasty meets studio 54! Think gold lame by the pool, leather look bikinis, fearless and unapologetic in attitude. I have the most amazing gold lame jumpsuit that you can throw on, on top of your swimwear. I’m going to wear it everywhere…with huge hoop earrings!
Which SS15 trends are you channelling for the new swim collection?
Zingy, bright patterns, 70s inspired metallics and super glam silhouettes.
Which is your favourite piece?
The gold bikini, the black cut out swimsuit and white bikini.
Are there any styles that work off the beach too? How would you style them?
All of them work off the beach. Just throw on one of my girly lace cover ups or the amazing black dress which has a very low neck line, ideal for showing off your bikini or better yet, the gold lame jumpsuit…this I intend to wear everywhere, on and off the beach! Just add sunnies, bag, earrings and go!
Who would you say embodies the spirit of your designs?
I have experienced enough in my life to know that you should have fun whenever you can at each and every moment. It’s a kind of liberation that embodies my designs. I feel free to be who I want to be and do exactly as I like…and with style baby!
Do you have a pre-summer fitness routine?
I have been working the most mental schedule so at the moment the only exercise I get is mowing the lawn and vacuuming.
Which celeb would you say has great body confidence?
Queen Bee, JLo, Rhianna. Their confidence comes from within. From their ability. They know they have power and strength and it manifests itself in every fibre of them. I love strong, talented, capable women.
You always look so glam by the pool – what’s your secret?
Sunglasses! They glam up everything and you don’t need makeup!
How do you combat the usual holiday beauty woes like dry hair and oily skin from sun cream?
I pile tons of oil or conditioner onto my hair and try not to wash it out until necessary. I exfoliate every night to try and extend my tan and I slather myself in body lotion every night to seal it all in. Saying that, mosquitoes love me so I’m clearly marinating myself for them.
What is on your ultimate holiday packing list?
Bikinis, sunglasses, sun dress, sun cream, toothbrush, passports.
And your dream destination?
Anywhere hot where I can go diving with my girls. Preferably the Maldives, Mexico or Jamaica.
What is your top tip for bikini confidence?
Choose a style you love and own it. Even if you don’t feel confident inside, when walking out in front of everyone, stand tall. Enjoy yourself.
