A Custom Bikini? Sure, We Can Print That Out in 3D for You
The N12 bikini (named after the plastic it’s printed with) consists of hundreds of tiny circles of plastic, joined by even tinier stretchy plastic strings. The entire thing is manufactured using 3D printing techniques, wherein plastic is melted, cut, and molded into precise shapes by a machine controlled by computers.
It was designed by Continuum Fashion, aka Mary Huang and Jenna Fizel. They are pioneers of what they call “computational couture”—fashion design that takes cues from the world of material technology and computer programming.
The N12 starts at $250, and goes up to $300 depending on your size.
