Lyoka Tyagnereva for The Blonds by Adrian Nina
Check out these fabulous shots by the very talented Adrian Nina of The Blonds show at NYFW, in which they collaborated with Playboy.
Phillipe and David met when Phillipe decided to go to the Roxy on the night of his prom in in 2004. Dressed in sheer rhinestone studded top, David spotted this "Sparkly fairy" dancing in the corner, and The Blonds were born. Inspired by sexy femme fatales such as Madonna, Marilyn Monroe, Jessica Rabbit ans Playboy bunnies, they have since dressed everyone from Rihanna and Gaga to Playboy bunnies in their uber-glamorous, super-fierce, sparkle-drenched custom creations.
For this collection, "Retro glamour was key to their season. Playboy and The Blonds are a match made in heaven. This season was about glamour and luxury and that's what the Playboy lifestyle embodies...The collection took its cue from the bombshells of the Sixties such as Raquel Welch, Jane Fonda in Barbarella and Playboy Bunnies," say The Blonds. These influences shone through in a bodice adorned with Playboy's original cartoon vixen, the 'Femlin,' and in an animal skin corset with fur trim and a gold mosaic corset with matching mask."
