Maroon velvet Playboy bunny costume is a collectible item of memorabilia. It is a rare example of a Playboy bunny costume available for sale.

Playboy bunnies

The Playboy bunny logo was the invention of art designer Art Paul. The image was regularly secreted on Playboy magazine’s front cover.

Playboy bunny costumes were worn by waitresses at Playboy clubs, which were a chain of nightclubs established in the US and around the world between 1960 and 1991 on the back of the success of the Playboy magazine.

The chain has been revived in a small way since 2006.

Description

The maroon velvet Playboy bunny costume was worn by a waitress at London’s Playboy club at some point between the club opening in July 1966 and its closure in 1981.

The colour was only worn by waitresses employed in the VIP area and the Hunt Room at the Mayfair venue.

The costume, which has a laced side seam, comes complete with a satin rosette bearing the name “Erica”. A Playboy Club card is also included, as well as a photo of Erica at work in the outfit.

Ownership

The rare item is currently offered for sale by Paul Fraser Collectibles, a company which specialises in unique, high-end pieces of memorabilia.
