FRENCH LIFESTYLE : THE BIKINI, A FRENCH INNOVATION…BUT DOES ANYONE REALLY CARE ?

In 1946, the first post-war atom bomb was exploded on a small island in the Pacific called Bikini Atoll.

A few months later, a French engineer, Louis Reard, came up with an idea for the briefest two-piece swimming costume ever.

He named it after the island bombing, and a new word came into the world’s vocabulary.

So the Bikini means FRANCE and France means « Laïcité »… regardless people like it or not !
