Quad Cups

Matching bikini top and sunglasses

Farmer Fashion has revealed a fashion breakthrough in its spring 2003 collection. It's a bikini top shaped like a pair of sunglasses and sunglasses that match, for fun in the sun. The bra has a plastic-covered metal frame in bright colors that stays on by hooking over and behind the shoulders (like glasses on the ears). The dark or silver hued fabric is 83% nylon and 17% lycra/spandex.

And ladies, no more problems with male eye contact. The bikini accessory sunglasses with convex, UV safe lenses are sure to hold their interest. They'll think they're seeing double when you accentuate the furrow between your eyebrows with makeup to create a delicate décolletage.

The designer also disclosed on the runway a fabulous matching veil and ruffled bikini bottom combo that's sure to make you look and feel good.

       wouldn't the wearer look rather like an attractive, minimally clothed alien?

       I like the idea of a Reactolite bikini that goes transparent indoors.

       // hooking over and behind the shoulders //   

       wouldn't it be more sunglasses-ey if they simply wrapped around the back, rather than going up over the shoulders? and would there be different versions of these for different styles of glasses?   

       "Emily is wearing Matrix style sunglasses and matching bikini, with a dark gray shiffon sarong..."

       This sounds a bit like Princess Leia's "bikini" after she's captured by Jabba the Hutt in "Return of the Jedi" ....   

       That's not a criticism, by the way....

       sappho, it might look good on a taxi driver   

       sild, it could be seen on a catwalk but would be a hard sell   

       sadie, or the big hooks would interlock at the back. Yes, different versions.   

       8th of 7, I don't recall the apparel

       FarmerJohn: See the link ...   

       //I don't recall the apparel //   

       Excuse me, but I think that either (a) you need to get your eyesight tested reeeeal soon, or (b) you need a test for Alzheimers .....   

       "I don't recall the apparel" .... Whew !

       I guess I wasn't wearing my bikini glasses.
FarmerJohn, Aug 07 2002
  

       The bikini top would be more sunglasses-y if it actually hooked on behind the ears.   

       As the woman turns her head, you'd get that Tucker third-headlight effect.
waugsqueke, Aug 07 2002
  

       FarmerJohn: Oh come on. Everyone remembers the gold bikini, especially Carrie Fisher ... you don't need special glasses - a wet towel on your face and a rest in a darkened room, maybe, but not glasses ....   

       waugsqueke:   

       // that Tucker third-headlight effect //   

       What's that ? Please elucidate ...

       blissmiss, it's called a sarong, and they're very popular with UK ladies whose bottoms are a certain size.
Bikini top suspended from ears??? are you trying to rip the ears off anyone with more than an A-cup? Do you have any idea how heavy the damn things are?
sappho, Aug 07 2002
  

       Yes, I'm quite familiar.   

       angel's link shows the Tucker third headlight, but it doesn't explain the effect. The third headlight on the Tucker was hooked up in concert with the front wheels, so that the light pointed to where the wheels pointed, illuminating your way around turns.
waugsqueke, Aug 07 2002
  

       blissy, we have footballers who wear that sort of thing but we like to keep it quiet.   

       Farmer, not sure of the comfort factor in having plastic covered metal frames, you know. I imagine they would get quite hot in the sun.

       We aren't supposed to understand wearing bikinis. They just look nice.
NickTheGreat, Aug 07 2002
  

       Or, you could just wear the bikini on your head.
BinaryCookies, Aug 07 2002
  

       A beach babe in sunglasses, triangular veil and matching bikini would generate some double-takes outside of Manhattan, Nice and L.A., but I obviously need some feminine assistance to model and critique this creation.

       My you're up early! Recounting your dream?
FarmerJohn, Aug 08 2002
  

       What! No illustration?!
bristolz, Nov 17 2002
  

       Yes, the link shows a catalog page!
FarmerJohn, Nov 17 2002
  

       Wundermous!
