Triple threat megastar Jennifer Lopez looked red hot on a tropical beach last week in a remarkably affordable burgundy bikni from an Australian swimwear label. The age-defying wore the $135 Macia set from Triangl, an iconic brand headquartered five minutes’ walk from Bondi Beach in Sydney, on holiday in Turks and Caicos with fiancé Alex Rodriguez, 45.
The grape-coloured two-piece showcased J Lo’s impossibly lithe limbs and washboard abs, honed to perfection through decades of dancing, gym sessions and on-stage performances. Shielding her face from the hot Caribbean sun with a $875 Dior bucket hat, the mother-of-two – who shares 12-year-old twins Max and Emme with ex-husband Marc Anthony – looked blissfully content in the sparkling swimwear.
Australian shoppers can order the bikni in sizes XXS through XL from the brand’s official website. But lucky Sydneysiders also have the option of stopping by the flagship store on Campbell Parade in North Bondi. Founded in 2012 by Craig Ellis and Erin Deering, Triangl swiftly amassed a legion of celebrity fans with its signature neoprene design which was once hailed the ‘world’s most popular bikni’.
The brand was widely touted as the official swimwear of summer 2015, when it was seen on the likes of Beyoncé, Kendall Jenner, Chiara Ferragni and a slew of Victoria’s Secret models including Joan Smalls and Frida Aasen.
