Slideshow: François Sagat in Charlie Swimwear Reminds Us That Summer is Quickly Approaching


Some certainly do like it hot.

Matthew Zink's swimwear and lifestyle apparel brand Charlie is built around the glamorous and decadent days of yore, part '70s glam, part modern day sex pot. The designer--who helped create the secrets at Victoria's Secret during his tenure as design director--constantly seeks inspiration from an ever revolving roster of muses, from classic icons like Farrah Fawcett and James Dean to modern marvels like Jon Hamm and Lara Stone. Recently he sent a few styles of his sexy goods to one of his favorite muses, Mr. Francois Sagat, the adult film star (whom we shot for last March's issue), who showed his appreciation by sending Zink a surprise gift. "He sent back a five-part picture series of him in our spring 2012 collection, shot in the snow," said the designer. "I've always appreciated his courageous aesthetic and safe sex advocacy, so it was a total compliment to receive these pictures." We're shocked that the steamy photo shoot, snapped by his sister Caroline Sagat, didn't melt the snow immediately. SLIDESHOW: Take a look at the photos here.
