When it comes to show stopping style that practically demands your attention at every turn, few shows on TV today can do it quite like Emily In Paris does. Set in the city of love with renowned costume designer Marylin Fitoussi at the helm, we’ve been swooning over pretty much every outfit since season one. Now with the third instalment recently aired and a fourth already confirmed, we can’t help wondering if the ladies from the show were to choose a selection of affordable sustainable swimwear from Koraru, which pieces would they pick? Well, a trip to the French capital to quiz the cast and costume designers might not be on the cards, but after having watched the show (repeatedly) we’re pretty sure we know which pieces these seriously stylish ladies would choose. Not to mention, thanks to poolside scenes in season 3 and their season 2 trip to St Tropez, we’ve already had a glimpse into their enviable lineup of beautiful beachwear options.
EMILY COOPER (LILY COLLINS)
From the moment we first laid eyes on Emily Cooper running alongside the Hudson river in that striking yellow plaid bomber jacket, we knew her closet would always be worthy of our attention. Then, when we finally got to see what she rocks on a beach vacation, we loved it even more. Bright hues, iconic prints, and elevated detailing are a must for Emily. We also know she adores mixing and matching with clashing colour-ways and graphic designs that not everyone would be daring enough to pair together. With all this in mind, we couldn’t resist selecting multiple cute bikinis and designer bathing suits we think she’d be very happy slipping into on her next coastal getaway or poolside party in the city.
First, we’ve picked out the Hedy classic triangle top and Annie high waisted bikini bottoms both in the shade Powder. Much like Emily’s St Tropez bikini, this beautiful bikini set is both playful and sophisticated and perfectly reflects her love of block colour swimwear for women. Not to mention, if the rest of the show is anything to go by, there’s no denying that Emily simply adores everything pink.
Additionally, with her fierce love of prints in mind, we can definitely see Miss Cooper relaxing by the pool or sweet talking her way onto someone else’s yacht, in the Annie one-shoulder bandeau top and Annie high waisted bikini bottoms in our iconic Coral print.
MINDY CHEN (ASHLEY PARK)
If you thought Emily’s outfits were daring, you haven’t seen Mindy Chen’s. Best friend, incidental roommate, and lover of all things wild both in fashion and in life, you can always count on Mindy to arrive in a scene-stealing ensemble that you’ll likely never forget. She positively shines in fluorescent silhouettes and never passes up the opportunity to wow us with a thigh-skimming hem or a plunging V-neckline. And, having recently noted her unforgettable fuchsia one piece swimsuit in season three, we’re guessing she’d keep the vibe going in our most vibrant bikinis and high cut one piece swimsuits if she had the whole line to choose from.
So, our top pick for Mindy? It has to be the Zabel tube one piece swimsuit in the mesmerising Coral print. Its curve-skimming silhouette and asymmetric neckline exude the exact kind of playful style vibes we frequently see reflected in her outfits. Also, if we’re talking about Mindy's penchant for unmistakably vibrant hues, we can see the Nikko bandeau bikini top and Nikko scrunch swimsuit bottoms in the shade Etnico slotting seamlessly into her summer swimwear lineup.
CAMILLE (CAMILLE RAZAT)
Whilst it’s true that Camille is no stranger to bold prints and edgy silhouettes, her closet is certainly more Parisian chic with an air of timelessness than the other women on the show. That said, that high-end edginess and unique designer details are always there. When it comes to beachwear, however, we’re taking inspiration from the iconic red suit she wears upon her arrival in St Tropez. If this look is any indication of the rest of her resort style, we can bet she’d feel right at home in the Kumanomi cup top and Nikko Scrunch high cut bikini bottoms both in the shade burgundy. This dramatic yet classic combination is perfect for Camille’s elegantly elevated sense of French style. We can see it fitting perfectly into her vacation closet, especially paired with an equally pretty bikini cover up for extra style points.
SYLVIE GRATEAU (PHILIPPINE LEROY- BEAULIEU)
When it comes to effortless elegance, there’s no denying that Sylvie comes out on top every time. She’s forever swanning into the office in chic fitted midi dresses, perfectly paired trousers and tops, and keeps her colour palette to a sophisticated yet never dull minimum. That’s why it came as no surprise that when we did get a glimpse at Sylvie’s luxury swimwear style she chose to step out in a stunning, not to mention timeless, black triangle bikini top and matching cheeky bikini bottoms.
To replicate her never-fail beachside ensemble, we think the bikini set Marie with its triangle top and matching side tie bikini bottoms in the shade Nero couldn’t be more perfect. This stunning swimsuit two-piece is utterly timeless and every bit as sleek, stylish, and versatile as Sylvie’s enviable look on the show. We’re certain it would be Ms Grateau's top Koraru pick.
