Japan Bondage-Style Bikini Is Latest Fashion Trend To Sweep Nation

1

If you thought you’d seen some racy bikinis this summer, brace yourself. A string-thin ‘bikini’ is taking the internet by storm having just landed in Japan as it’s hailed the hottest new piece of swimwear in the Far East this summer. The two-piece, by fashion house Buyma, lets wearers show a very generous amount of ‘under-boob’ and just about covers their nipples.

Eco Street Murals By NEVERCREW Duo

1

NEVERCREW (previously) is a swiss based artists duo composed by Christian Rebecchi & Pablo Togni. They work together since 1996. In the recent years NEVERCREW undertook a research that doesn’t aim at forcedly channeling reflections in a precise stylistic and formal way, but rather to find a new language that allows to follow them, deepen them and share them; and especially that it’s also a practical and visible demonstration of that. Working together since almost twenty years, Christian Rebecchi & Pablo Togni developed the issue of the comparison (the confrontation between two persons, between ideas, between forces) and at the same time, interacting in the public space as street artists, they extended this confrontation outside in a direct way, making this perennial dual “discussion” one of the hubs of their work.

Classic Cars Vs. Their Modern Versions
