If you thought Playboy had come and gone, you couldn’t be more wrong. Expanding the franchise way beyond the pages of the magazine and the reality TV show, “The Girls Next Door,” it seems Hef has hired the right people to keep the brand alive.
First, bringing some fun to the runways of New York Fashion Week, The Blonds debuted a collection inspired by the classic Playboy Bunny uniform. The Spring 2012 Ready-to-wear collection was accepted in good humour by the fashion elite:
"Dear The Blonds,
Thanks for putting on the most fun show of fashion week. After days of sitting properly watching lovely shift dresses walk back and forth, it was really great to mingle with the over-the-top crowd and cheer for the models. And the clothes, they were great too. Because there’s nothing to counter this season’s sedated sex appeal like Phillip Blond dressed as a Playboy Bunny. And he looked better than most of the Hef’s actual bunnies, too. (Did we mention Playboy sponsored the show?)

Perfectly timed with the end of NYFW, premiering tonight at 10PM on Citytv is the highly anticipated “The Playboy Club” starring Eddie Cibrian and newbie Amber Heard. The show is set in 1963 at the first Playboy Club in Chicago.
