As it turns out the furkini was designed by husband Kanye West. (And, this guy wants to work for Prada?)
The photos were taken during a ski trip with eight other couples over the holiday weekend.
Over the years, Kardashian has had repeated run-ins with PETA, short for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. But she has refused all entreaties to give up fur.
She was even flour-bombed by a PETA activist in 2012 as she walked the red carpet to a media event for a new perfume. The female activist shouted “Fur Hag,” as she doused the reality television personality, according to reports at the time.
Kim refused to press charges for the incident, but defiantly declared that she would never stop wearing fur. That hasn’t eased the animus animal rights groups feel for her.
Her latest fashion choice is likely to only irk them more.
Kim posted the photos on her Instagram account today (Jan. 20). “Boots with the fur…,” she wrote in one caption on a photo of her wearing a tiny string bikini with knee-high, fur-covered boots.
“How is that practical? Where the fuck do you wear that? Obviously not swimming. Won’t really keep you warm. Who’s gonna tan in that?” wrote one commenter.
“You should think about the poor the animal that was killed to make your stupid bathing suite !!!!!” wrote another.
Many comments, however, were positive, although some noted that she was copycatting Amber Rose, who posted similar photos (sans fur) in a tiny bikini a day earlier.
