The Eternal Question: Should I Spend $80 To Look Even Vaguely Like Taika Waititi

Taika Waititi: Comedian. Actor. Writer. Director. Fashion Icon.

Some may know him as the first indigenous person to helm a major superhero movie (Thor: Ragnarok). Others may know him as the genius behind What We Do In The Shadows and Hunt For the Wilderpeople. But for those of us for whom fashion pumps through our very veins, we know him as the man who rocked a pineapple two-piece at San Diego Comic-Con.

Behold it in its full glory, and no it is not a romphim.

Last night, the internet uncovered that Waititi had a fashion twin in Suicide Squad’s Margot Robbie.

The eccentric and acclaimed filmmaker responded.

And so did our own Rebecca Pahle, fashion hero.

While Waititi did not share his style secrets, @inkalypse did. The design is called Parrotdise, and can be found on Wallpaprkit, in a men’s and women’s version.

Not bad, but not Waititi.

Cute! Still not Waititi.

Sold as separates. The top and bottom are $40 each. And so now the eternal question Rebecca and I are both facing as fashion fans with an almost cultish devotion to Waititi and his charms: Are we seriously going to lay down $80 for a summer two-piece that has an open back so you can’t even wear a proper bra with it?
