Before we get into Kim Kardashian, let’s talk about the logistics of a fur bikini.
You can’t swim in one, because the fur will just become waterlogged. You’ve likely seen (and smelled) an animal who’s been frolicking in a lake, and you know what that looks like.
And while you can obviously just strut in a ‘furkini,’ what happens when the impulse to take a dip becomes too great to pass up? Your bushy bather becomes the equivalent of a clogged shower drain just like that. So, no, Kim is not #BreakingTheInternet or starting a new trend in swimwear, and we know this because she’s obviously stuck to the frosty snow over an L.A. beach.
There’s nothing conventional about these photos (shot by Kanye West, no doubt), but there’s nothing conventional about a fur bikini-merkin, either, and at least the world’s most talked about couple is aware of that.
We will not be seeing these on anyone this summer.
