The Show: La Perla Fall 2013 Collection
The Theme: A dreamlike modest sexy
The Inspiration: For the most recent La Perla collection, inspiration was drawn from Spain in the 1930s as well as from the film “Manolete,” the story about one of the most famous bullfighters, with a reputation as both a great lover and a fighter. The Black Label collection from the brand also has a collaborative inspiration: fashion design drawings from Elsa Schiaparelli and Surrealist artists Salvador Dalí and Joan Miró.
The Color Palette: Blush pink, hunter green, red, and black
The Signature, Standout Look: With Valentine’s Day only a few days away, it’s a shame that these pieces won’t be available sooner! Everything in this lingerie collection was exquisite, with a main focus on embroidery, embellishments, and rich color. Key pieces included: bras, panties, nightgowns, bodysuits, robes,and garters. The intricate lace patterns were seen throughout all the garments, giving all the pieces a classy, sexy feel. Part of this collection was the rebirth of the Black Label, which has been on pause for a few seasons now. The sheer mesh layering, the fur, and those killer heels were standouts; my personal favorite being a sheer mesh jumpsuit in the Black Label collection.
