All about beachwear

About a month from now is Bikini Day. On July 5, 1946, the first modern bikini, designed by automobile engineer Louis Réard, made its appearance in Paris, on the 18-year-old Parisian nude dancer Micheline Bernardini. Réard had been unable to find a Parisian model brave enough to model his invention. He wanted the outfit, which was “smaller than the world’s smallest swimsuit”, to have an explosive start and named it after the series of nuclear tests  that started on July 1, 1946, at Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands.

t2 picks a bouquet of reads for you to brush up on world football before the big event

The title’s got nothing to do with the 1990 edition, in case you’re wondering. Copa90 is a UK-based football media company, best known for its eponymous YouTube channel, which has over 1.6 million subscribers. The book is a visual delight, thanks to the stunning portraits of football legends, full-page photographs of players, and images from Russia and World Cups past — like this one of Pele and Jairzinho from Mexico 1970 (picture right). But it’s not just a feast for the eyes. Each team featuring in Russia has its greatest footballing moment, legend, rising star and basic numbers listed. Plus, you’ll find fun pages on kits, best and worst individual performances, controversies, underdogs and social media. And the price makes this book an absolute steal.
