For an interesting look at the history and evolution of intimate apparel, check out The Style Group’s sixth pick for the Top 10 Art Books List, Dessous: Lingerie as Exotic Weapon by Gilles Neret. As the title suggests, this book is an artistic chronicle of undergarments ranging from bras, corsets, panties and stockings (proof to show that you can put a book together about almost anything.) But do beware: this edgy read from cutting-edge book company Taschen is definitely more Agent Provocateur than your granny’s silk panties.
