Bizarre Chinese [b][url=http://www.celinehandbagsonline.com/celine-box-c-22/]Celine Box Bag[/url][/b] summer accessory lands international fashion photoshoot

In 2012, a [b][url=http://www.celinehandbagsonline.com/celine-trapeze-c-25/]Celine Trapeze Handbag[/url][/b] trend emerged in China that saw beachgoers' covering their faces in Mexican wrestler inspired masks. The popular swimming gear is a nylon sunscreen mask which covers the entire head and neck down the collar bones, revealing only the eyes, mouth and nose.

The facekini became popular in the northeastern city of Qingdao. Women would wear them to protect their skin from the harmful [b][url=http://www.celinehandbagsonline.com/]Celine Bag[/url][/b] rays and from jellyfish while at the beach. They've become so popular that they're under mass production in China and are available to buy in local swim shops for 15 to 25 yuan (1 to to 2.50) or online, available in different bright colours and playful prints just like swimwear, with prices from $16 to $24 (approx. 10 14).

The unusual Chinese trend has caught the attention of former Vogue Paris Editor, Carine Roitfeld, who ran a swimwear photoshoot of models wearing facekinis in her biannual magazine CR Fashion Book.

The editorial reads: "Our latest summer story represents an opposing to ideal of beauty altogether, with masked poolside [b][url=http://www.celinehandbagsonline.com/celine-mini-belt-c-27/]Celine Mini Belt[/url][/b] models set out to soak up as little sun as possible.

"While our summer beauty routines are devoted to bronzing, selftanning, and tanextending, in Asia, beautyseekers are more likely to centre theirs around lightening and brightening. A tan does not signify a chic trip to Capri, but it could mean hours of hard labour spent out in the harsh sun."

Video: When the trend hit the beaches of China The models are seen wearing sophisticated onepiece swimsuits from designers like Alexander Wang, Armani and Michael Kors, adorned with glamorous jewellery and facekinis in different colours and patterns. "These beautiful eyes are peering from behind a maskstill enjoying summer, but avoiding a summer glow at all costs."

According to CNN, a local shop owner who sales the masks in China, says the facekinis first appeared about seven years ago, but with the increased awareness of sun damage and health concerns, it picked up couple years [b][url=http://www.celinehandbagsonline.com/]Celine Bag Sale[/url][/b] ago.

CNN Travel explains that Chinese women have a saying that translates to "white skin covers up a hundred uglinesses". They use umbrellas while walking on the streets and wear longsleeve tops on sunny days. It seems Asian women are extremely concerned about the sun damage in the skin. There's more recognition of the detrimental damage of UV rays on the skin, and women have taken action perhaps not as extremely as Asian women, for example, who have opted to not even reveal their face to the sun.
