Kiki de Montparnasse

Top 10 Sexy Lingerie

Art fans may already be familiar with Man Ray’s muse “Kiki de Montparnasse” (aka Alice Ernestine Prin) — the French nightclub singer and painter who was an artist’s model for several Dada painters in 1920s Paris. The subject of Man Ray’s celebrated surrealist image Le violon d'Ingres, Kiki was said to be “one of the century’s first truly independent women.” Her cutting-edge, creative spirit lives on through the high-end American lingerie company Kiki de Montparnasse. The label is known for its superbly made, provocative lingerie pieces, which have a distinct couture vibe. In 2011, French it-girl and model Julia Restoin-Roitfeld (the über-stylish daughter of former Vogue Paris editor Carine Roitfeld) released her capsule collection for Kiki de Montparnasse. The debut, which featured vintage-inspired pieces handcrafted of silk and French lace, cemented the brand’s reputation as the epitome of cool. Kiki de Montparnasse’s collection may come with a hefty price tag — there's nothing under $150 — but these are no run-of-the-mill unmentionables.
