La Perla Jean Paul Gaultier SS13 on Catwalk in Paris

The leading role of the theme “Rubans” is a silk ribbon creating designs and arabesques on the tulle. It is a tailoring technique meticulously hand sewn ‒ complex and at the same time carefree and sparkling. The serpentine motifs alternate with intriguing 3D roses that stand out against the champagne background as well as the completely black background. Focus is on a sinuous dress that envelops the body, the bandeau bra with the cups entirely decorated by the curves of the ribbon.

JP GaultierLa Perla B3 «Cage» Swimsuit SS 2013

La Perla edits  one of the cult Jean Paul Gaultier garments, the Cage Bustier, with a cage motif that becomes the principal detail of a selection of bathing suits and dresses with a hyper-graphic touch. While, red or black: three strong colors to underscore the concept of “body architecture” where the cage marks the waist and the hips on the dresses or reveals the body with the bikini.  Focus on the bustier belt, the perfect accessory to wear on the bikini, around a shirt, or a tight dress.
