When I was a little girl I thought that Playboy bunnies were the sexiest women in the world. (I know, I’m dating myself and the whole definition of ‘sexy,’ but I digress…) They seemed knowing and naughty, slinky, slim … all of that and more!!
According to our friends at Wikipedia “a Playboy Bunny is a waitress at the Playboy Clubs which were originally open from 1960 to 1988. Bunnies wore a costume called a “bunny suit” inspired by the tuxedo-wearing Playboy rabbit mascot, consisting of a corset, bunny ears, a collar, cuffs and a fluffy cottontail.” (If you want to know to be a bunny, check this out, and if you’d like to see some more fab retro Playboy bunny pics, click here)
I was thinking of the Bunnies and how the definition of ‘sexy’ has changed because this week we listed (finally!) some of our new (old, actually) Mucha’s. They are a collection of ‘girl of the month’ illustrations that Mr. Mucha did for a magazine called Cocorico (if you’d like to find out more about his illustrations for that magazine you can go here – it’s a great page (in French, but the images need no language) of all the work Mucha did for Cocorico).
Even for folks who don’t know very much about the period, EVERYONE seems to know something about Mucha. We’re delighted to have these highly collectable, very rare pieces which we have had professionally matted. They are ready to frame and quite magnificent.
