    Bikkembergs is a famous (at least in Europe) brand of very expensive underwear. A bit like Calvin Klein on steroids (also in the literal sense in the case of the models wearing said underwear).

    The piece of clothing could make for an interesting perfume, but I'm afraid this will be more like a sporty thing - but we shall see.

    In fact it's more than just underwear. They like to call it "sport couture". It's sport (football) inspired fashion. Over 10 years ago it was very hyped but it has lost much of it's appeal... Bikkembergs used to have football players instead of real models on his runways.

    TLS:

    I think it's a Belgian brand, right? In Italy, it was really famous only for underwear, but I guess elsewhere they had a larger business line.

    Yes it is. Not many shops that carry the line anymore. I guess niche became mainstream and lost it's flair...

    I saw the underwear last summer in Brazil so they have a market for their products there also. Had never heard of it prior to that though.
