Sexy fairy tale heroine swimsuits from Japan will turn the beach into fantasyland this summer

As part of a fashion-conscious society that’s not averse to a splash of playful sexiness, Japanese swimsuit designers draw inspiration from a number of sources, such as Japanese school uniforms (both women’s and men’s), Shinto shrine maidens, and anime characters. But for its latest creations, Japanese fashion label M Kigyo (also known as Emu Project) is taking its cues from Western sources, with a trio of bikinis based on the fairy tales of "Little Red Riding Hood," "Snow White" and "Alice in Wonderland."

The Little Red Riding Hood swimsuit bundles a hooded parka, bikini top, skirt, and bikini bottom together in a four-piece set that enables the wearer to mix and match the components for various looks.

▼ There’s also a black version, which we guess would make this Little Black Riding Hood.

Less extensive, but also less expensive, than the 23,950-yen Little Red Riding Hood is the two-piece "Alice in Wonderland" set, for 19,900 yen.

This swimsuit actually provides a lot of coverage, with a blouse-like top connected to a high-wasted skirt-style bottom by a pair of overall straps with frilly shoulder accouterments, which are removable if you’re worried about getting cross-shaped tan lines on your back.

While Alice is usually depicted in storybooks and cartoons wearing blue, the suit is also offered in red and black.

Finally, the three-piece Snow White set is priced at 16,970 yen, getting you a white-colored top with a chest ribbon, removable skirt, and bikini bottom.

If you’re finding yourself drawn to components from different sets, most of the bundled items can also be purchased separately, as can M Kigyo’s swimsuit cover overalls.

All items can be ordered here directly from M Kigyo, with delivery scheduled for mid-July, right as Japan comes out of its rainy season and prime beach weather begins.

From kinky boudoir to beach!

Or just daggy?

Certainly not gender-neutral (though the link to "Let the breeze kiss your skin at the beach in this strappy “bondage” bikini from Japan" just below was, with picture of guys wearing bondage bikinis despite more obvious attention to to the modelling chick).

This isn't swimwear. Trying wearing these hideous and impractical outfits at my local municipal baths and you'll be told to get proper swimming attire.

Really? What is their definition of appropriate swimwear, and how does this contravene it?

Don’t really harmonise with my bone structure....

Too many ruffles and bows and excess fripperies are banned as they can detach and clog up the filter system.

OK, it must be said - the designers at M Kigyo have come up with the best swimsuit designs in history with the Little Red Riding Hood and Little Black Riding Hood! Yowza!

Most of these suits will be worn at home, I think, and not at the beach.

This is the sort of creativity Japan is good at. Can we request that the designers try their hand at nightwear?
