Always wished your bikini would look as flattering as your lingerie?

That time has come: Agent Provocateur's line L'Agent is producing the kind of swimwear with the same design principles as their sought-after sexy underwear (read: bikinis that lift, sculpt and support without looking mumsy). Don't know L'Agent? It's Agent Provocateur's sultry little sister and it's curated by none other than actress Penélope Cruz and her sister, dancer Monica Cruz.

The celebrity sisters enlisted the services of Agent Provocateur's creative director Sarah Shotton for the brand's first ever swimwear collection, which takes its style cues from the high-octane glamour of Las Vegas, Miami and Venice Beach. There are three ranges in the collection: California Cool, Vegas Baby and Miami Vice, all of which fuse electric colour combos with sexy cuts and a retro glamour vibe.

Some pieces are sporty (think neon orange and bubble gum pink bandeaus) and others scream resort, from a plunging black halter one-piece secured with gold hardware to a zip-up bra-style purple design. There's lots of strappy cut-outs going on too (check out the navy bikini with bright peach accents) and even a gold lurex triangle design. Pick out your faves in the gallery above - summer's less than a month away.
