Lunar Fashion

Back in 1968, the artist Gianangelli unveiled these metal bathing suits that he described as the "lunar fashion from the year 2000." In hindsight, his belief that we'd still be going to the moon in the year 2000 was more wrong than his fashion prediction. [Calgary Herald]

Don't get me started on the fact that WE DON'T HAVE A SPACE PROGRAM or we'll be here all night!

I like the filling in those suits though.

I think it was more an excuse for the designer and photographer to get photos of nice looking women in skimpy outfits than any real attempt to predict fashion trends of the future... 😊

Metal bathing suits? I suppose it is better than wool which has the tendency to stretch out of shape when soaked. 😊

But wool will keep you warm even when wet and will trap air if kept wet so it can be used as a flotation device.

Picture a woolen bikini, Expat. Warmth doesn't matter when your modesty is at stake. 😊

When a/the bikini is properly filled the wood that comes to mind isn't going to be the bikini. 😜

"woolen Bikini" sounds like a name for a feminist punk rock band! :lol:

Meat bikinis + the warmth of wool => steel wool?
