The Blonds and Playboy have collaborated on looks for the Playmate of The Year in the past, so it seems inevitable that David and Philippe Blond, a design team known for theme collections, would chose to form an alliance with Playboy to create complete collection inspired by the Playboy brand. The Blonds & Playboy both celebrate the hourglass figure so it is the perfect marriage. The first look seen at the The Blonds Spring 2012 show, modeled by Philippe, set the tone of the collection; the silk corset adorned with a over-sized Playboy cut-out by Max Steiner for The Blonds was quintessential Blond style, that certain bespangled glam with a punk edge.
The Bunny is not the only muse for this collection; Jessica Rabbit inspired a sensational purple cocktail dress embellished with sequins.
The Blonds signature corsets designs are the foundation of the collection in many incarnations, embellished in multicolored fox, Springbok Antelope versions and finally a Diamond Bunny ensemble – Glamour with a capital “G.”
