Romy Schneider’s swimsuit in "The Swimming Pool"

It is quite hard to find a scene more evocative of summer than the arrival of Romy Schneider on the pool deck in Jacques Deray’s "The Swimming Pool".


Shot during the summer of 1968 in a villa overlooking Saint-Tropez, the movie stars Romy Schneider and Alain Delon in the main roles, along with a young Jane Birkin — one of her first on-screen appearances. Sublimated by the Mediterranean light, Romy Schneider is more glowing than ever, and her bikini probably has something to do with it.





Her two-piece swimsuit perfectly enhances her curves while highlighting her golden complexion — good news, brand Matteau came up with a similar version for the summer. Made from a triangle top and a boyfriend bottom, this minimalist design is ideal to sunbathe under the warm sun…
