Here in the US, most of us are bundling up right now, and lingerie aficionados are facing the dilemma of trying to stay sexy and warm at the same time. Of course, I know that some lucky people are planning a winter vacation away, and many of you in other parts of the world are in the middle of summer! La Perla knows this, too! They have just come out with their Fall/Winter 07/08 La Perla Resort collection.
According to La Perla, this new swimwear collection was inspired by “a fantastic era populated by pirates and noblewomen, constellated with the shining gold of imaginary treasure.” Colors like dove grey, pink, and black are paired with a lot of gold embellishments to produce “a striking, spectacular outfit” and “sophisticated style….with a modern feel.” So, how do they do it? With touches such as gold braiding, tailcoat-style embroidery, metal sequins, pirate stripes, and accessories like an 18K wraparound skirt! In true La Perla form, these pieces aren’t cheap. Expect to spend upwards of $600. But this just may be worth it if you are going on a fabulous resort vacation!
