Jean Paul Gaultier for La Perla


For spring/summer 2012, Jean Paul Gaultier will be continuing their collaboration with Italian lingerie brand La Perla with an exclusive range entitled Collection Createur. 

Jean Paul Gaultier + La Perla = The stuff lingerie dreams are made off. And next years collection is most certainly not an exception. While at first look the collection looks pretty straight forward and what you would expect from the duo, on closer inspection it’s leading the way for the future of lingerie. Delicate laser-perforated leather gives the impression of lace, while real Levers lace is used for decorative back details.

Lace and Leather are a duo that simply work for millions of reasons- but leather that has been laser cut to imitate lace is just geniusly gorgeous.

Mini-ruffle detailing for bra cups and briefs is made with very fine netting produced with Calais looms. The netting La Perla use, honestly is so soft and sensual it feels like Angel hair or something equally out of this world is touching your skin.

Femininity is again celebrated with sheer placements, and lines of black ruffles over nude bodies to create playful, high class babydoll silhouettes.

And Finnally mixed-scale laser perforations combine with lace trim on figure-hugging slips and structured bustiers. Innovative, modern, contemporary, but the combined heritage of both prestigious brands- undoubtably wistfully nostalgic and romantic all rolled in to one.

Absolute perfection.

Save Spend Splurge- Understated Elegance

Save :  £26  La Sezna CLAUDETTE SILK CREAM, Available in Sizes 32A-38E

I am honestly surprised to like a La Senza bra as much as I do this one. Elegant, classic and chic it hasn’t skimped on trims to meet the low price. And while there is no lace applique- it would make a brilliant T-Shirt bra. Available up to a 38E which is promising, also.

Spend : £53 Rosy Vintage Champagne Bra  Available in Sizes 32A-36D

A Blend of contemporary smooth molded cups with vintage styling and colours, this really is a delicious bra. I adore the jade version as well!

Splurge : £399 Carine Gilson Available in Sizes 32A-36D

One of the most delicate and stunning bras I have ever held. It really is like holding a treasure in your hands, completely lined in sumptuous silk satin, its so fragile, like holding history in your hands and yet gives such fantastic shape. It feels like golden butter on your skin, and so well made without a single detail over looked. Well, you’d be pretty pissed off if there was for £399, I suppose!
