Pop star Dua Lipa took to social media on Tuesday (June 30) to share a picture of herself clad in a mini pink crochet bikini with a fun bear print. Lipa captioned the selfies with a series of bow and bear emojis.
The bikini, designed by Giuliano Calza for the Italian streetwear label GCDS, features three strategically-placed Care Bears on it.
“I had all of them,” Calza says of the Care Bears, adding his favorite was the version that lit up at night.
“I was in a little town just outside of Tokyo hunting for vintage toys where I saw this old, faded Care Bears poster with the tagline: ‘I guess everybody stopped caring,'” he said about the inspiration for the design.
Calza added, “It kind of broke my heart to see my favorite cartoon character thinking he was forgotten as I grew up, so I decided to create this piece to remind myself of my happy moments as a kid in front of the TV watching Care Bears, and to inject a moment of joy into my audience.”
Calza says Lipa is the perfect person to dare to wear the new two-piece. “She just gets me,” he says.
Lipa had earlier shared a public moment with her boyfriend Anwar Hadid during a fun PDA-filled time by a pool in Miami in December, when she wore a gorgeous animal print bikini.
