Marchesa x Playboy

I will always have an appreciation for fashion illustration - long and lean limbs, flawless and gorgeous ensembles, etc. So of course my eye was drawn to this sketch from Marchesa who designed an outfit for the new Playboy club opening in London. One can only wish for super long legs . . .

MARCHESA has designed a one-off PlayboyBunny costume in celebration of the new Playboy Club, which opens in London on June 4.
Inspired by the original iconic bunny design, Marchesa designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig have added their own high fashion touches.
"Marchesa is thrilled to be a part of the Playboy London Club launch, and for the opportunity to design a one off Playboy Bunny costume - one of fashion and pop culture's most iconic emblems, in celebration of the return of this club," says Georgina Chapman, co-founder and designer of the luxury label. "We've taken our inspiration from the original costume but added Marchesa's signature details, such as hand draping and embroidery, while staying true to the Playboy Bunny's classic corset silhouette. The result is a modern, yet feminine interpretation of this legendary look."
The unique outfit will be unveiled for the first time on May 26, after which it will be auctioned to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness.
