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.
