One-off bikini ideas that for ‘various reasons’ never made it to production.

Y’rus Beach Cocktails

The start

Summer 1986. Going on holiday to Crete, my partner forgot to buy a new bikini in the Netherlands, so went to see some local beach wear shops.

After visiting three or four places with rather dull stuff, we sat down to have a coffee on a terrace in a village called Agios Nicolaos. So what kind of bikinis you like, she asked me…

Fashion styles are difficult to explain, so I grabbed a paper napkin that was lying on the table and made some improvised sketches. Many years later, turned out to be the start of the the Y’rus Beach Cocktails collection.
