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…Floral Explosion

1. SAVE: New Look’s Sunburst Floral Balconette Bra £9.59 In sizes: 32B-36DD.New Look’s lingerie collection is definately one to watch. While components and fit is slightly compromised to meet the bargain price, the prints and designs are surprising. This particular bra gives a fairly standard fit, but the print and general finish looks really high end, definitely a bargain worth snapping up.

2. SPEND: Gossard’s Wildflower Plunge Bra  £29 In sizes 30A-38G. This is a bra that really has to be tried on to appreciate, but I’ll try my best. The fit is just incredible. It manages to boost your breasts into a perfect plump clevage, whilst still feeling completely and utterly supported. The print used is an exclusive hand painted, French artwork from 27/06/39! The fabrics are the sleekest satin and details such as the gold rings and sliders, gold hook and eye and delicate red organza bow make this feel like a bra that has come straight out of Paris. I always wear it if ever I want to feel completely encased and supported, and also a little bit special.

3.SPLURGE: Agent Provocateurs Ashleen Padded Bra £110 In sizes 32A-36E. True to A.P’s reputable quality, this bra will give you one of the best shapes ever. With a perfect plump apple shaped clevage teamed with the gorgeous, fashionable and daring combination of deep purple floral and hot pink. It is a set to evoke all the feminine charms inside of you. Worth every penny.

Don’t let the world change your smile- let your smile change the world.

Today was the perfect day to run errands and go for a girly lunch in town, all sunny and breezy. I had some stuff to grab for work, (stationary goods ready for a big presentation looming up, not that I’m complaining- there is something so endlessly satisfying about shopping for stationary ha!), along with lots and lots of boards to get ready. I was in an irritatingly good mood so I I popped on my Gossard Dotty bra. Which I wasn’t draw to at first, but after having seen it again and again I kept thinking how cute and soft it looked. Once I tried it on it really didnt disappoint, plus is gives amazing shape- without any padding in ! The bow in the centrefront as well is a really nice touch as its unique and quite honestly makes the bra ! The mint is also really vibrant and sweet, so to make the most of it I matched it with a pink lace leotard I made last year.

I also got caught up in the horror of the london riots. I dont want to add my two cents on the internet, as I have out ranted myslef in real life already 🙂 but I do have this to share:

I’m heading to London tomorrow to get ready for a big trend talk at work, so I will see the devastation even closer.
