Kate Bosworth hit fans with a dose of nostalgia by posing in a bikini on Instagram. The image, reminiscent of scenes from her 2002 film Blue Crush, sees the 40-year-old holding a surfboard while looking rather nonchalant. But the photo wasn’t just a movie call back. The actress is partnering with women’s surf brand Roxy for their Capsule Collection, which launched on May 10.

Along with swimwear, the Kate Bosworth collection boasts covetable items such as cargo pants, board shorts, t-shirts, knit dresses, sandals, sweatshirts, and more. The designs are inspired by fashion in the early 2000s. Every item has been manufactured with a sense of responsibility towards the environment, using sustainable materials like recycled nylon and organic cotton.

The range is described as a collection for big hearts, free spirits, and surf girls everywhere. Speaking about the collaboration, Kate Bosworth said she is thrilled to collaborate with Roxy on something that embodies the energy and optimism she shares with the brand. “Each piece tells a specific story, but the floral bikini has a special place in my heart,” the Superman Returns actress said in a statement.

Kate Bosworth was accompanied by a prestigious lineup of Roxy surfers on the North Shore of O’ahu to model the collection for the Roxy website. The photos are reminiscent of the life her Blue Crush character always wanted. The shoot features the greats of women’s surfing, such as Stephanie Gilmore, Lisa Andersen, Kelia Moniz, Izzi Gomez, Sakura Johnson, Suelen Naraisa, and Maluhia Kinimaka.

It’s not surprising that Kate Bosworth would collaborate on a fashion line reminiscent of Blue Crush. The film is hailed for depicting the struggles of non-professional surfers who work blue-collar jobs to support their passion. Although the movie received mixed reviews from critics, it was a hit with fans, earning $51.8 million at the global box office against an estimated budget of $25 million.

Directed by John Stockwell, the movie is based on an article by Susan Orlean called “Life’s Swell,” which appeared in Outside Magazine in 1998. Along with Kate Bosworth, the cast features Michelle Rodriguez, Sanoe Lake, Mika Boorem, and Matthew Davis. The story follows three best friends, Anne Marie, Eden, and Lena, who share a deep passion for surfing on Hawaii’s famed North Shore.

The main protagonist, Anne Marie (Kate Bosworth), is a local surfer girl who dreams of surfing the Pipeline in the Rip Masters surf competition. Despite living in a humble beach shack with her rebellious younger sister and three roommates, Anne Marie works as a hotel maid to support her surfing aspirations. But her priorities waiver when pro quarterback Matt Tollman comes along.

When she’s not modeling swimwear, Kate Bosworth can be found working on movies. The actress recently starred in The Enforcer, directed by Richard Hughes. The story follows an enforcer who has to sacrifice everything to save a young girl from his femme fatale boss, who is involved in human trafficking. Antonio Banderas and Mojean Aria also star.

Kate Bosworth will also appear in the upcoming thriller The Locksmith. Directed by Nicolas Harvard, the story follows an expert locksmith named Miller, who has just been released from prison. He tries to start a new life with his daughter and ex-girlfriend, but everything changes after a kidnapping.
