Julia Fox’s Barely There Thongkini Is Essentially Just Ties and Chains

Julia Fox’s street style is some of the most controversial we’ve seen, including everything from vinyl condom boots to a neck tie corset, so it’s hardly a surprise that her swimwear follows suit. The 33-year-old Italian-American actress and model shared a weekend selfie on Instagram of herself rocking a Dilara Findikoglu strappy bikini with silver chains affixed to the halter top and barely there bottom. Called the Mata Hari after the exotic dancer of the same name, the two-piece retails for $468 and is made from metallic polyamide fabric with ruching at the front and back.
Fox could have chosen the bathing suit to play up her cherry-red hair, which appears to have been tinted a dark purple shade, or her matching berry plum lips. The mom-of-one sported subtle smoky-blue eye shadow and her bleached brows, holding the camera as far away as possible to show off the skin-baring details of her bold and edgy design. You can barely make out a black leather handbag with a ball chain and grommets behind her, which is a far cry from your typical beach bag, but does her punk look plenty of justice.
Last month, Fox was photographed in an entirely sheer swimsuit from PrettyLittleThing at the beach, which featured dramatic side and stomach cutouts and a cheeky thongkini backside. Teamed with a shell necklace and oversize tinted sunglasses, the ensemble fell right in line with her avant-garde aesthetic. Of course, she’s not the only celebrity to try out the see-through swimwear trend, which is also favored by the likes of Pink, Kim Kardashian, and Irina Shayk.
