Are you racking your brain for what to buy that special chemical person in your life for a birthday, retirement or seasonal present? Look no further – the ICIS Fashion Editor is back to help with those difficult choices once again.
I once bought a paint-your-own-cow kit (remember Cow Parade?) from the firebox.com website, and now they have come up with another surefire winner, with this season’s must-have present – the Borat swimsuit. You’ve seen it on the big screen. Now watch your loved one’s face light up as he unwraps this special token of your affection. As Borat says in the online catalogue: “Beach ladies will love you and laugh happy happy if you wear on holiday special time.
It reminds me of when I went to a retirement party at SABIC in Kerkrade, Netherlands, last year, and his kindly colleagues had mocked up a picture of the retiree in the Borat swimsuit to be shown on the screen with the farewell presentation. Just an idea for when you’re organising that next leaving presentation.
(The swimsuit first featured in the 2006 film “Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan”.)
