John Galliano continues to play with newsprint, makes swimsuits you can read


Bored at the beach? Well, you won’t be for long, thanks to John Galliano’s newsprint swimsuit, which will give you the opportunity to read your own boobs and belly while you lie in the sun. And if you have a friend with the same suit, why you can pass the time by reading each other’s butts! Don’t, though. Please.

This suit is in the same style as Galliano’s Gazette print handbag, and like the bag before it, we’re just not convinced by it. This seems to give off something of an "I couldn’t afford clothes, so I just wrapped myself in newspaper" vibe, which is ironic considering it costs £135.

On the plus side, no exposed navels/crotches here – we should perhaps be grateful for small mercies.

    Meh…I remember I had a barbie swimming suit or tank top or something that was newspaper print…and that looked better than this because it was AGED newspaper. This isn’t making me mad, but it’s a little dull for Galliano.

    I like the shape of the swimsuit… if only it weren’t newsprint.

    I actually think it’s cute. I wouldn’t wear it though.
