A Japanese designer knew he could not boob with his latest creation - bizarre necklaces with tiny male figures diving into the wearer's cleavage.
The oddball jewellery - called cleavage divers - is set to become a massive craze after creator Takayuki Fukusawa was flooded with offers of financing when he sought investors on a kick-starter website.
The figures - a parachutist, a diver, an astronaut, and a rock climber - are positioned exactly to look like they are either jumping into or climbing out of the wearer's boobs.
"They're very witty, very well modelled and cheeky. It's the blissful expression on the figures' faces that make them so cute," praised one investor online.
Fukusawa, 30, turned heads last year when he created a series of T-shirts with realistic looking rips in the material apparently showing the wearers' boobs and bras underneath.
The designer from the Japanese capital Tokyo started his design firm back in 2012 with the goal of humouring the world through his fashion ideas.
He explained: "My job is to make the world smile through the use of art and design.
"My goal is for people to see my work and say, ‘Oh, he’s at it again.'
"That’s when I know I’ve succeeded," he added.
Fukusawa is waiting until his kick-starter fundraising campaign has finished before moving into production of the necklaces, which he expects to be able to release by the end of the year.
