$250 bra, $75 bikini
The new fall items at Kiki de Montparnasse had just hit the shelves, and my first discovery was a shiny stretch-satin bra-and-panty set. I liked the black handcuff print in black on silver—you had to look closely to see the naughty design. The full brief had a sheer black edge at the legs, which flatteringly did not cut into the thigh at all, and the balconette-style bra had structured cups that provided the perfect amount of cleavage. Kiki de Montparnasse, 79 Greene St., nr. Spring St.; 212-965-8070.
