A certain segment of the population (ahem, those with one X and one Y chromosome) wishes bikinis could be eaten. But aside from those made of licorice and sold in sex supply stores, swimsuits are rarely swallowed. Luckily for men, Ed Hardy, the gent who started a SoBe style trend, has made that dream a reality with his edible bikini. This savory, totally digestible replica of his 2010 Trellis suit will debut just in time for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim. In a burst of yellows and pinks, and garnished by beets, blueberries, and banana leaves, this two-piece will make your mouth water and your boring, inedible suit jealous. But dammit, Hardy has found a solution for getting undressed. Just eat it. The unveiling will happen this Saturday at 11 a.m. at SushiSamba Dromo. Admission is free.
