Padded Bodysuits

Vilsbol De Arce Swimsuits Feature Futuristic Linebacker Shoulders

— May 6, 2009 — Luxury
These incredible Vilsbol De Arce bodysuits feature padded shoulders and are actually meant to be swimsuits. We've seen these incredible abstract designs before; our own TrendHead covered the Vilsbol De Arce video titled 'The Egg, The Monk and The Warrior' from Copenhagen Fashion Week.

Check out some other abstract fashion designs below.

Implications - Fashion like this might seem counter-intuitive, but today's consumer market is so vast that there are always those who are looking for products that are in a league of their own. Inventions like these swimsuits defy tradition, expectation and the conventional confines of a common piece of apparel and as such are sure to be something that only a select few have. That, more than anything else, is a significant portion of their appeal.
