3. 脸基尼(liǎn jī ní)
When it comes to Chinese dama 大妈(dà mā ), or old grannies, you can’t ignore their fixation for purchasing gold and their love of square dancing. Recently, a new initiative was created by this group known as dama, which has had an enormous influence on the French fashion circle. This initiative is the so-called “脸基尼”(liǎn jī ní), a bizarre mask used to cover a swimmer's entire head and neck down to their collar bones, equipped with holes for eyes, nostrils and mouth, so as to prevent people from getting a tan on their face. “脸基尼(liǎn jī ní)” is a phrase comprising the words face (“脸”liǎn) and bikini(“基尼”jī ní)creating an entirely new meaning in the world of fashion. Now the phrase has gone viral among French fashion circles and is the talk of the town in Paris.

E.g. liǎn jī ní xiàn zài chéng le hǎi tān yóu bì bèi pǐn
脸基尼现在成了海滩游必备品。
The Facekini has become an essential fashion item for trips to the seaside.
