The Playboy Bunny, Couture Style

It seems that the Playboy Club is enjoying something of a renaissance. First, there’s the sure-to-be-a-hit NBC show, “The Playboy Club,” debuting this fall, which takes place in the swinging ’60s. And now, the design team Marchesa has revamped the bunny costume for the club’s London location in the form of a delicious feather and sequins concoction. Designers Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman (seen here flanking the costume) only made one — which they say is a celebration of the female form, not a totem of objectification.

“What is wrong with celebrating women? I think it celebrates the female form. The women in here are pretty empowered. Take Debbie Harry, a former Playboy Bunny, she’s an incredible woman and an icon, and she’s had a fabulous career … It would be more repressive to tell women they can’t dress a certain way and the can’t do certain things,” said the pair of their creation. The one-off costume will be auctioned off in October to raise money for breast cancer awareness.
