Robin Piccone Penelope BikiniRobin Piccone challenges the notion that black bikinis are basic and boring with this Penelope swim top.

There's an awful lot going on here. The triangle shaped cups are overlaid with crocheted fabric, which extends down to create a narrow band underneath. I love the subtle texture the crocheted finish creates, and the way our skin peeks out from beneath the fabric band. Abalone shell buttons also pop against the dark fabric. In choosing to place the buttons along one side of the bikini Robin Piccone's helped the Penelope feel youthful and fresh.

What you see is what you get here. There are no hidden extras or details that exceed our expectations. Robin Piccone's selling style above all else, but she's selling it well.

I love the dark gothic feel of the Penelope in black, but the blush alternative hasn't impressed me. The pale pink is frankly insipid, which isn't what we want for $94. That price is standard for high end designer swimwear, but it still stings when you need to buy the briefs too!

I can't imagine middle-aged sun lovers will enjoy Robin Piccone's modern details, but they may make younger girls reconsider wearing black on the beach.
