Jean Paul Gaultier to Debut Lingerie for La Perla

John Paul Gaultier, who designed Madonna’s infamous cone bra and corset for the Blond Ambition Tour, recently teamed with high end Italian lingerie house La Perla for an upcoming collection under things. The line includes a toned-down cone bra and panty set and will be available at select La Perla boutiques, department stores and Gaultier boutiques.

Pointy conical breasts anyone?

The collection also includes a fancy, backstitch satin bra with a shoulder-strap motif and a special garter belt, both limited edition pieces which will be shown in Paris at the French designer’s July 7 haute couture show.

“Lingerie is part of my DNA and of my heritage,” Gaultier said. “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 the lingerie, with the best savoir faire.” {Stylelist}

Gaultier announced his departure from Hermes a little over a month ago and has never had a full fledged lingerie line. Images of the all the pieces in the collection have not yet been released. {NBC}

“Cooperating with Jean Paul Gaultier filled us with satisfaction from the very start,” La Perla CEO Alain Prost said. “A perfect synergy immediately came to light between his vision and the values of luxury and elegance that have always been cornerstones in La Perla’s history.”
