Jean Paul Gaultier Lingerie

A warm welcome back to Amelie, Merci New York's new Special Markets Editor. Amelie has been reporting from Paris each Friday, with the latest trends in French wedding inspiration. Take it away, Amelie...
Good morning everyone! This week I am pleased to share an unexpected alliance between French Haute Couture and Italian Luxury Lingerie. And funny enough, I learned of the news while listening to the radio. {How very French is it to discuss high fashion on a morning radio show, no?}
gaultier-la-perla-honeymoon-lingerieI was headed to work as the disc jockeys buzzed about Jean Paul Gaultier’s partnership with La Perla. The French designer has licensed a beautiful range of lingerie through the luxe Italian line, and hard as I tried, the only vision that came to mind was the iconic cone bra Gaultier created for Madonna’s legendary Blonde Ambition Tour.
Imagining the streets of Paris with ladies bustling about in cone bras, I smirked to myself and went on my way. But after researching the line… I realized this was a match made in honeymoon heaven.jean-paul-gaultier-la-perla-honeymoon-lingerie-black-corsetThe collection represents the perfect mix women are craving when buying honeymoon lingerie: a touch of glamour, lace and fine details {from La Perla} and a hint of sensuality and modernity {brought by Gaultier’s unconventional design}.
The 27-piece line of corsets, bodysuits and bras, all represent Gaultier’s soft, shocking, yet feminine style. They bring a bit of the runway to lingerie, as well as to your honeymoon suite in Tahiti.

The Jean Paul Gaultier line will hit La Perla boutiques and select department stores in November.
