Named La Perla Designer Collection, Jean Paul Gaultier's first official lingerie line will make its debut during the designer's upcoming haute couture show. On July 7 in Paris, Gaultier will showcase two limited-edition pieces for La Perla—an elaborately constructed satin bra and a garter belt. Having put Madonna in a cone bra in the '90s, it was clear the designer still had lingerie on his mind when he reintroduced the famous silhouette on his fall runway as outerwear pieces.
“I met Jean Paul Gaultier a few months ago, and we immediately hit it off because we shared a common vision of beauty, style, taste and quality. So we agreed to try this adventure together and unite our savoir faire,” said Alain Prost, chief executive officer of La Perla.
Look out for Gaultier's 27-style capsule collection of mostly handmade corsets, high-waisted briefs, bodysuits, and bras done in pink and black in La Perla and Jean Paul Gaultier stores this November. The collaboration is reportedly a two-year affair and will include swimwear next March.
