"最高行政法院裁定Villeneuve-Loubet市的布堅尼禁令需要暫緩執行後,該市市長稱不會執行裁決,會繼續執行禁令。理論不涉及該裁決的其他各市都表明,布堅尼禁令仍然有效。"



It's only fair...
Some French scholars of Islam consider it absurd to conflate the burkini with hard-line Islamism, not least because the latter would not permit women to bathe publicly in the first place


It may appear bizarre, or frivolous, to argue that women should bare more flesh

Bikini or burkini? Burkinis have come in for a lot of criticism lately. But Shaimaa Khalil think's that's unfair.

【第一位大庭廣眾穿著比堅尼的是⋯⋯脫衣舞孃!】
/1946年,法籍設計師Louis Réard在巴黎推出了一款由三塊布和四條帶子組成的泳裝,這種世界上遮掩身體面積最小的泳衣,通過胸罩護住乳房,背部除繩帶外幾乎全裸露,三角褲衩盡量上提,最大幅度地露出了胸、腰、臀、腿。
由於穿上後近似全裸,當時巴黎的許多專業時裝模特都對這種泳裝望而生畏。然而,一位名叫Micheline Bernardini的脫衣舞孃卻勇敢地向傳統觀念挑戰。在一家游泳池邊穿上比堅尼,讓記者照相⋯⋯/

burqini (or burkiniArabicبوركيني‎‎, portmanteau of burqa and bikini) swimsuit is a type ofswimsuit for women. The design is intended to comply with the Quranic instruction for Muslim women to dress modestly.[1] The suit covers the whole body except the face, the hands and the feet, whilst being light enough to enable swimming. It looks rather like a full-length wetsuit with built-inhood, but somewhat looser and made of swimsuit material instead of neoprene.[2]
In August 2009, a woman in France was prevented from swimming in a public pool wearing a burqini, amidst ongoing controversy about Islamic dress. The action was justified by reference to a law that forbids swimming in street clothes.[3] In August 2016, the mayor of Cannes banned the swimsuits, citing a possible link to Islamic extremism.[4]



















A brief history of the bikini – and the garment's surprising Roman origins

On this day in 1946, the modern bikini was unveiled by a French engineer (seriously) named Louis Réard. Here we look back at the history of the essential summer holiday accessory...
Strange origins


Believe it or not, bikinis actually date back to Roman times, when the skimpier alternative to the toga - featuring a bandeau top - was thought practical for ladies playing ancient sports. However, along with central heating and chariot racing, the garment slipped from view for centuries.


On this day in 1946, the bikini swimsuit was introduced by French designer Louis Reard at a popular swimming pool in Paris. [“Bikini,” Wayne Theibaud, 1964, oil on canvas.]

  • In 1946 the USA exploded an atom bomb at Bikini, an atoll in the Marshall Islands in the western Pacific. Not long after, a scanty two-piece swimming costume caused a sensation on the beaches of France. Its effect was so great that the French called it the bikini. The word seems to have appeared first in English in a US newspaper, the Waterloo Daily Courier, on 26 June 1947. In an article on swimwear it reports: ‘The French, it seems, have a new suit planned that is about twice as wide as a piece of string. It's so explosive that they call it the Bikini.’
