La Perla have just released their latest lingerie collection for the upcoming European Fall/Winter 2012 season, titled the “Oriental Suite” featuring model Samantha Gradoville as photographed by Mary Rozzi.
The East meets West exquisite silk and lace collection is inspired by the grace of a geisha and the Italian sense of elegance where auras from distant worlds meet in the most stylish eroticism. The elements that represent oriental sensuality become the leading characters of a story outlined over the body: obi belts, kimonos, lacquered screen patterns, fans. As for an art collection, the treasure lays in the pleasure of exploring every detail and in the disclosure of each element.
The fan is inspired the Leavers lace and satin garments created with nude color strategic tulle inserts for a trompe-l’oeil effect. The sophisticated styling of the garments also incorporates other Eastern symbol wardrobe elements such as the obi belt that appears on the baby dolls. The Chantilly lace woven with a camellia pattern is the main character of a range of creations that play on a two-tone effect thanks to the use contrasting colour satin.
Stylized bamboo canes are embroidered on tulle with the harmonious elegance of floating world paintings. The “furoshiki”, the Japanese art of wrapping objects in fabric, is the theme that dominates some of the garments where embroidered tulle is “wrapped” with a sheer layer of smooth tulle.
As a special homage to 2012, the Year of the Dragon, La Perla created a special tulle and black satin parure embellished with a gold dragon metallic embroidery. The same embroidery reappears in the black velvet long evening dress.
