Saweetie’s Swimsuit in “Hit It” Is Inspired By Filipino Flag

Saweetie is one of the many stars who has picked up on the Haus of Pinklemonaid hype this summer, choosing the brand to design her swimsuit for her appearance in the Black Eyed Peas’s “Hit It” music video. While the successful 28-year-old rapper also got to wear a striped, crystal-covered dress and rhinestone encrusted skirt set, the Deni one-shoulder cutout one-piece was made thoughtfully just for her in-house by Filipino designer Andru Wallace, who founded the Haus of Pinklemonaid brand in 2013 after starting off in the industry as a stylist.

This one-of-a-kind take on the Deni is crafted from the highest quality Italian nylon and Lycra and takes influence from the Filipino flag to celebrate Saweetie’s heritage with its golden-yellow sun rays on the white portion of the midriff. Kim Kardashian has also been spotted in Haus of Pinklemonaid, and Saweetie’s got her own collection, too. Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande, Ashley Graham, and Megan Rapinoe have also worn the label.

Ahead, check out some photos direct from the company of Saweetie’s swimwear in the making (before it found its way onto her body accessorized with chunky chain-link jewelry and heels and thin hoops), then shop the exact piece in monochrome — you’ve got your choice of either black, white, navy, or red — or pick out a different inspired look we sourced to match the vibe.
