A much-coveted book from the last year has been Irreverent by the infamous and former editor in chief of French Vogue, Carine Roitfeld. Sensing Parisian style perfectly, she included a daring and sometimes slightly racy punch to the book’s pages. Now looking for a brand new read has arrived in the form of Second Skin, the Erotic Art of Lingerie, by New York editor Patrice Farameh. Visually intriging, this book features a combination of erotica, fashion, art and photography.
Forget Victoria’s Secret. Second Skin gets into the clothes of some of the more sophisticated lingerie labels, like Italy’s La Perla and the couture brand Nona de Samim. Giving way to phrases like “A dirty book is rarely dusty” and in a sensual way capturing Second Skin’s muses all dolled up in stunning, luxury lingerie with accessories to match. Get inspired and give this lovely coffee table book as a gift to the one your heart desires or simply keep it for yourself.
