Editor’s Note: This article has been updated from its original version to include information on the collaboration’s second drop.
Just a couple of days following Gigi Hadid’s 27th birthday, Frankies Bikinis announced its next celebrity collaboration on Monday, April 25, teaming up with the supermodel for perhaps the dreamiest collection we’ve seen from the cult-favorite swimwear label yet.
A longtime friend of founder and creative director Francesca Aiello, Hadid and her first-ever swim collection is full of nostalgia. Dubbed “Americana,” the swimwear and loungewear pieces are inspired by the Hadid’s family home and farm in Pennsylvania.
In a series of photos lensed by another one of their childhood best friends Alana O’Herlihy, both Aiello and Hadid can be seen wearing pieces from the upcoming launch with sunshine and greenery as the backdrop. For instance, Hadid is captured in a slew of cottagecore-inspired styles, from baby blue pointelle mini skirts, strappy triangle bikinis, and an adorable yellow crop top and boy shorts set. Hadid has also recently dropped the second installment of her collab, offering keys styles like swimwear and signature silhouettes available in both adult and children’s (Lil Frankies) sizing.
“Gigi is someone that is so special and so inspiring to me,” Aiello said in an official statement. “She is creative, hard-working, kind, and loving, and combining those incredible personality traits with our deep-rooted friendship is what really made this collection not only fun to create together but also to shoot together.”
Added Hadid, “We designed this collection with so much love, and I believe that really shines through in the details within the fabrics, prints, and styles we chose to use. Both Frank and I have very social lives but also are big homebodies, and the collection really embodies that side of us.”

Taking on romantic colorways, such as warm yellow and baby blue, styles include bikinis and one-piece swimsuits with a full range of coverage options. The loungewear is just as dreamy, with offerings like bodysuits and cardigans, and even accessories like hats and headscarves.

Some of the new additions are also in the children’s wear line, as well, which features tankinis, bucket hats, and comfy cardigans.
