An $82,000 swimsuit… but you can’t use it for swimming

Gold swimsuitA swimsuit made of pure gold has been unveiled in Kyoto by the Tokyo jewellery store  Ginza Tanaka. It’s a one-piece, hand-woven,  halter-neck outfit weighing 500g and can be yours  for 10 million yen (approx. $82,000).   Seems like a lot for a swimsuit that they say is not for water recreation, but I suppose it’s still not a patch on Susan Rosen‘s $30 million diamond bikini.
