Welcome to Yazbukey’ s Gardens of Pleasure, a lush, lusty Eden ruled by sultry goddesses. Classical antiquity cavorts with an orgy of comic book colors against a sensual musical backdrop by Michel Magne, Tropical Fantasy (1962). Serpentine Yazettes clad in not-so virginal white initiate newcomers to a land of carnality, aphrodisiacs and other erotic charms, including pieces that couple 3D plexi with raffia or satin, Swarovski studded starfish, pink flamingo leather gloves, entwined serpents and exotic flora shod in Louboutins.
Under the watch of a high priestess who bears a striking resemblance to Cyd Charisse, visitors surrender to temptresses with names like Poison Ivy, Cicciolina, Aphrodite and Eve — until Adam, Cupid and Zeus descend and things turn explosive. Venus alights, restoring harmony to a pleasure island of such magic and mystery; it could only have sprung from the spirit of Yazbukey.
