The fashion expert, Diana Vreeland even dared to say, the Bikini was the most important creation of the 20th century after the atomic bomb. Exaggerating or not, it was the legendary explosion of this atomic bomb in the Bikini atoll, in the south pacific, that named the future “society bomb”. And who could discuss the impact in a puritan world caused by the two piece swimsuit designed by French engineer Louis Reard in the summer of 1946; an invention that would open minds and eyes.
