Finally, some fashion news worth waiting for!

Hold on to your girdles and basques girls as, at long last, Mr Jean Paul Gaultier is teaming up with one of the most exclusive and sensual global lingerie brands, La Perla. Says Gaultier, “La Perla is the pearl of lingerie, with a long history and the best savoir faire.”

Each design is a celebration of the female body: from the waist cincher corset to the slip that follows the curves of the body, from the extra-high briefs that hug the hips to the bustier which highlights the neckline. There are also the bras and a body with the famous pointed cups recalling the costumes created by Gaultier for Madonna’s 1990 Blond Ambition tour. Black and powder pink, two cult lingerie colours take precedence, but there are also accents of coral and duck egg blue.

Leading the way, two special limited edition garments will be shown on the 7th of July in Paris, during the Jean Paul Gaultier Autumn/Winter 2010-2011 Haute Couture show: a backstitch satin bra with a shoulder-strap motif and glove-holding strings

and a suspender belt, strategically stitched to round off the silhouette in an irresistible way.

Says JPG, “Lingerie is part of my DNA and of my heritage. It is now almost thirty years since I have designed my firstcorset dress, and in my latest prêt-à-porter collection I revisited the conical bras and corsets worn as outerwear. This collaboration was a natural and logical step especially since La Perla is the pearl of lingerie, with a long history and the best savoir faire.” 

La Perla’s Chief Executive, Alain Prost, calls the collaboration “a perfect synergy…The designer, Jean Paul Gaultier, is an outstanding point of reference in Couture and La Perla, represents the excellence in lingerie worldwide.”

The creations of this capsule collection between Jean Paul Gaultier and La Perla will go on sale in November 2010 in La Perla boutiques around the world, in exclusive international department stores, in Jean Paul Gaultier boutiques and in a number of highly-selected fashion stores.

Oh that just looks gorgeous. Chances of it being anywhere near my price range = 0

They look lovely, but wonder about the cup sizes.. I am a sexy utilitarian, satin rather than lace.
WKD’s bullet bra in black satin does it for me.
