If you’re a big fan of the Golden Arches and looking for some new swimmers for your next trip, we’re here to bring you some good Fried-ay news.

McDonald’s Australia has teamed up with Aussie brand Budgy Smuggler, to serve up a new swimwear collection to make your next beach/pool/summer trip tastier than ever.

The collaborative range will include swimsuits, bikinis, bucket hats, and of course, budgy smuggler briefs starting at $55.

Three unique prints are up for grabs, inspired by the meals that the world knows and loves.

“We are so excited to bring together two great Aussie icons to create the ultimate summer uniform,” said McDonald’s Australia’s senior brand manager Liz Whitbread.

“Whether it’s lounging on one of Australia’s iconic beaches or dipping in and out of the pool, this summer is all about doing things we love with people we love.”

The announcement is part of Maccas’ summer campaign and follows news of the TimTam McFlurry, which has gone viral on social media.

This isn’t the first time the fast-food giant has stepped into the fashion industry.

Last winter, Ronald and the team partnered with Aussie brand Peter Alexander to bring out a cosy range of PJs, paying tribute to the characters such as the Hamburgler and the friendly clown himself.

The collection will go on sale on Saturday 8 January on the Budgy Smuggler website.
