“very excited for the opportunity to design one of the iconic symbols of pop and fashion culture. We were inspired by the original costume, but we added some of Marchesa’s signature details: embroidery and draping while respecting the classic corseted silhouette of the Playboy costume. The result is a modern and feminine rendition of this legendary look”.
