"The Golden Réard"
Only one individual bikini by Louis Réard still exists: the "Golden Réard"; the others are mass-produced. The "Golden Réard" was created especially for the winner of the "Miss Réard" competition. Experts date the production year to 1948. In terms of its design, the piece is timeless and unique in both colour and cut. Even by today's standards, the "Golden Réard" is considered an aesthetic masterpiece. The unique piece is therefore considered to be the most historically valuable bikini in the world .
The Réard bikinis: jewels of the collection
The 17 Louis Réard pieces still in existence are valuable products of his work. The BikiniARTmuseum owns 13 originals . Another two are in the extended family possession. The remaining pieces are on display in the Musée Galliera and the Louvre museums in Paris.
