With the opening of her first US boutique at the Plaza Hotel, a recent feature on the last cycle of America's Next Top Model, and a fashionably fun fantasy-inspired lingerie line, Marlies Dekkers is taking the whole world by storm - not just her native Netherlands! Ranging from riding gear gone risque, Shakespearean forbidden love, and spider web beading and design, Dekkers' inspirations may be unconventional, but the results of these off-beat ideas are undoubtedly fabulous. Whether you're looking for something slinky and seductive to wear on Valentine's Day, or just have a year-round infatuation with lovely lingerie like I do, Dekkers creates daringly imaginative and sexy high-end intimates for every size (she even has an award-winning maternity line!) that are bound to find their way on just about anyone's wishlist. Check out the slideshow for some favorite picks, courtesy of renowned photographer Carin Verbruggen, from Marlies Dekkers' recent and upcoming collections!
