Upside down ʙικιɴι trend makes a splash as ₷ɛx¥ models take to the catwalk
The upside down ʙικιɴι trend continues to make a splash in the fashion industry. Even though the craze was popularised years ago, it’s showing no signs of slowing down in the summer of 2022. During a Miami Swim Week show yesterday, a model sashayed down the catwalk wearing an inverted ʙικιɴι top.
The cyan two-piece, designed by VDM The Label, featured ruched detailing and showcased her cʋrves. And thankfully, the b0mbshell managed to avoid any wardr0be [email protected] as she strut her stuff in nude heels and ran her hands through her long hair. Maddy Marchesani, the Australian brand’s designer, said: “The collection was inspired by the beautiful Amalfi Coast.”
It is a reflection of the brand’s ethos to “break boundaries” and “take new leaps and bounds” with its swimwear collections. Fans gushed about the range on VDM The Label’s Instagram page. One wrote: “Truly one of the greatest shows.” Another said: “Beautiful” and a third gushed: “Amazing show”.
A few years ago, Italian model Valentina Fradegrada popularised the quirky trend. Instead of wearing her swimsuit the right way round, the model sported her top backward. Tying the halter neck straps across her chest works to amplify the [email protected]@ge, which is why the craze is so popular. After Valentina started the trend, celebrities jumped on the bandwagon.
