The facekini craze!


First came the bikini, then the mankini (remember that?) and now the face-kini


What is a facekini, you might ask.  It’s the latest craze in sun protection to hit China.

In China fair skin is a desirable trait.  A tan represents a lower class citizen, one who works long days out in the field while pale skin signifies affluence.  The facekini is an excellent way to preserve pale skin.

Sun umbrellas/parasols are also very popular in China.  I have to admit that I've owned an SPF umbrella for a while and this summer I used it for the first time.  People did stare at me (as if I was some sort of alien) but I didn't mind.  However, I could never wear a facekini! J


What do you think: Is wearing a facekini too much?  What about parasols?

I would NEVER wear this and I think I would cross the street if I saw someone walking with one of these on!! ROFL!!

@Eschelle Westwood I think this is one trend that will never catch on in the rest of the world. ;)
