When it came to who would follow in Miranda Kerr’s giant footsteps from last year’s Bonds Swim campaign, we couldn’t look any further than Bonds girl, Shanina Shaik. The 26-year-old has fronted ads for Bonds before, and has since gone on to cement herself as a powerhouse in the industry, having walked in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show a whopping five times! Now she is back for our latest Bonds Swim range, along with fellow model, Jay Alvarrez.
The pair hit the beaches of Malibu to model a variety of swim pieces. Shanina sported our latest range of mix and match bikinis, and one-pieces, while Jay tried out our newest collection of Bonds boardies, while he dabbled in a bit of surfing in between takes.
