Who said cats don't like water? I love this Black Milk swimsuit, based on the iconic Steinlen poster art for the French cabaret, Le Chat Noir (The Black Cat).
A 19th century print isn't something you'd necessarily think to put on a bathing suit, but I'd expect nothing less from James Lillis, the Australian designer behind Black Milk, a brand known for its unique graphic swimwear, catsuits, dresses, and leggings.
The $90 price tag isn't necessarily a steal, but I think it's worth the price of knowing you'll be the hottest cat lady on the beach! It's also a bargain compared to the $300+ wildcat inspired one pieces of fellow Australians, We Are Handsome, spotted on Rihanna just last year.
