Bikini designer Matthew Zink: 'Rihanna is the perfect muse for my collection'

The former Design Director of Victoria's Secret, Matthew Zink, has revealed his excitement at the fact that Rihanna is a big fan of his Charlie bikini line.

Speaking to Grazia magazine about his Charlie label, Zink explained that the Bajan beauty looks incredible in his pieces and they help to showcase her 'sensuality':

"I have put so much energy and commitment into making the perfect string bikini. I also take a simple timeless approach to swimwear to make sure you get the attention, not your bikini. In the end, people are sexy not clothes."

"Rihanna's sensuality and youthful energy make her the perfect muse for Charlie. I think our styles help celebrate Rihanna's natural confidence and sexuality. I can't tell you how proud I am to have her as a [Charlie fan]."

Last week, Rihanna shared a snapshot of herself posing in one of Zink's Charlie line bikinis on Instagram and accompanied the picture (shown above left) with the caption: "Shout out to my lover @charliebymz Thank u for designing what has to be my favorite bikini of all time!"

In the photograph, the 'Umbrella' superstar wears the 'Charlie' bikini, which sells for $230.00 (£148) and you can purchase it through Charliebymz.com.
