The ingenious/abominable creation, depending on whom you ask, comes from New York’s Villa Italian Kitchen. In honor of National Bikini Day, July 5, the restaurant took their love of pizza to whole new levels, teaming up with a food stylist named Jessie Bearden on the bathing suit.
Bearden handcrafts each Pizza-Kini, which accounts for its hefty prize tag. The trimming on the edges of the suit, for instance, is made from hand braided pizza dough.
“There is a lot of detail work the process of doing it meticulous and time consuming,” explained Jennifer Petrella, of BML Public Relations, who partnered with Villa Italian Kitchen. “[Bearden] has to meet with everyone who orders [a bikini] and they have be measured and fitted for it.”
