Frankies Bikinis just launched a recycled tracksuit – shop it here

“The entire line is designed to wear when you want, as you please,” says Francesca Aiello, founder of Frankies Bikinis based in Venice, California. Today, just ahead of its 10th anniversary, the supermodel’s favorite swimwear line launched its first sportswear collection. “We refer to them as ‘No Active Rules,'” Aiello says of capturing the all-everywhere wear attitude defined by her designs.

Right from the start, celebrities like Hailey Bieber, Gigi Hadid, and Jennifer Lopez were drawn to Elo’s work. “My first OMG moment was when Candice Swanepoel published one of my designs before Frankies Bikinis became a brand,” Aiello recalls. At the time, she had been creating “fun” pieces for Instagram photoshoots. “I’ll never forget the number of messages I started getting from people asking how to buy the swimwear they saw Candice in,” she says. Once it became clear that the pieces she was making were being worn as hybrid fashion, something clicked.

Aiello says of the “main inspiration” for creating 11 new patterns (12, if you count a quilted duffel bag) in solid shades of black and blue, as well as plumeria-inspired florals that reflect the brand’s natural diversity. The bodysuit is cut from quick-drying fabric made from 80% recycled polyester and 20% spandex, so it “shapes just with your body and makes for natural curves.” Wear them while running errands, pair them with jeans, and roll around the house in buttery smoothness.

Basics like high-waisted leggings feature obsessive zippers for tactical and stylistic adjustments, while tufted tennis shirts and ultra-mini skirts capture the brand’s front-facing image. “You can mix and match everything to create your own look,” says Aiello. “I’ve always loved the idea of ​​designing pieces that give our customers more value for their efforts.”

Below, Aiello’s offerings Vogue magazine An exclusive first look at every piece from the new collection.

Billie bralette is a multitasking staple, true to its genetic brand. “It can be worn not only while working out, but also under your favorite tank or jacket,” says Aiello. “The fabric is so comfortable and soft that you can wear it all day.”

“I love that the sportswear aesthetic is changing, and people are very open to bringing more fashion-focused pieces into their active wardrobes,” Aiello says of creating stand-out items like the Felix suit. “The choppy details give that extra flair.”
