Pistol Panties' will unveil its ''show-stopping'' collaboration with Topshop today (22.04.13).
The sexy swimwear brand has created four glamorous beachwear styles for the high street giant, which are inspired by the Copacabana girls of the 40s and boast tribal prints and cut-out details.
Deborah Fleming, the label's designer, told Vogue.co.uk: ''It's the kind of swimwear that makes you stand out on the beach - really show-stopping swimwear.
''I also like to think of it as swimwear that you can just wear out with a pair of high heels, if you're daring enough.''
The finished pieces - which start at £59 for a bikini - are in keeping with Pistol Panties' usual style, but with added embellishment for an even more eye-catching look.
Deborah said: ''I went a little more over-the-top with the designs and the fabric embellishments than I usually do with my main collection, which has become more fine-tuned over the seasons.
''But, essentially, the fits and shapes and the signature are very similar.''
Collaborating with hugely popular retailer Topshop is a lucrative move for the swimwear brand, since its found Sir Philip Green and his wife have just placed at number 16 on the annual Sunday Times Rich List.
Their net worth currently stands at 3.88 billion pounds thanks to the international expansion of the brand's parent Arcadia Group.
