is Daisy Lowe, who has just announced she is designing a line of swimwear for Peacocks for spring/simmer 2011.

Finding inspiration in the French Rivera scene during the fifties, Lowe's debut range is influenced by Sophia Loren and Bettie Page. Her four piece collection features flirty bikinis, swimsuits, and sexy shorts for women of all shapes and sizes. While her mother, Pearl, will continue with her vintage style dresses for Peacocks this spring.

"It was important from the start that my designs were accessible so my friends could afford them, which is why we've kept the collection under £18," Daisy said. "My mum is my style icon and it was great growing up and having access to her closet. I'm so pleased I now have my own collection to wear and share with my friends instead of nagging my mum for hers."

Daisy Lowe for Peacocks will drop in May.
