The Trikini - a bikini with a matching face mask- has become a hit for its Italian designer after she created it during lockdown as a joke.
Tiziana Scaramuzzo, the owner of Elexa Beachwear in Senigallia, central Italy, began producing the pandemic-proof beachwear to keep spirits up at home after the government announced a restriction on movement due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Her suppliers told her they would be closing in spring, which led to her being unable to produce bikinis for peak season. This hit the business hard.
After posting images of her daughters wearing the creations on Facebook, the Trikini went viral and Scaramuzzo now has requests flooding in to the store.
