SECOND SKIN The Erotic Art of Lingerie

If there’s one thing we all love, it’s a woman’s body. It’s a work of art, a blank canvas, a powerful weapon and without a shadow of a doubt one of the most aesthetically pleasing things on the face of the Earth. It’s been the subject of epic poems, songs and obsessions; it’s the inspiration behind masterpieces. It creates life and generates debate. It never ceases to amaze, shock, trouble and seduce.

Second Skin: The Erotic Art of Lingerie explores the delicate, sexual, fascinating art of decorating a woman’s body with fine lingerie that is just as much costume as it is jewelry. It celebrates that fine line between what we see and what we imagine, through the work of designers around the world. It’s a collection of some of the fanciest pieces from those who have mastered the art of creating mystery and desire.

Author Patrice Parameh put together one of the most beautiful collections of luxurious lingerie by designers such as Kiki de Montparnasse, La Perla, Lascivious, Jean Yu and Andres Sarda, to name only a few. A total of 40 designers are presented in the book through flawless photography, along with quotes and the philosophy behind their brands.

This ultimate coffee-table hardcover also features a foreword by Seven Bar Foundation, a non-profit organization that stages lingerie shows to raise funds for women entrepreneurs in disadvantaged countries.

With its gorgeous display of silky skins, delicate frills, sensual lace, feathers and shape-transforming corsets, Second Skin reveals as much about fashion and lingerie as it does about the very essence of beauty and how we perceive, use and love our bodies. And it’s one amazing, giant, powerful ad, too. Beware; it will create a massive need for a lot of new lingerie!

Since these days it appears everybody and their neighbor think they have authority over our bodies, it feels good to see them celebrated and decorated with pieces as beautiful as the women wearing them. Feels good to see the female body shown for what it is: the most beautiful and timeless gift of nature there ever was.
