Strapless animal print bikini

Expozay's logo of a black palm tree, red sun and waterline captured the essence of a brand focused on making sexy suits in vibrant colours and original prints. The bikini has been screen printed and then airbrushed by hand by artist Graham Bell who did all the early textile designs for the brand.
