The enfant terrible of French fashion is back in old form, mixing music with ultra glamorous lingerie. Jean Paul Gaultier, the iconic designer who collaborated with Madonna on her Blond Ambition and Confessions tours, and who designed the the cone-bra, which is the most distinctive piece of lingerie ever, has once again taken to the boudoir, this time collaborating with ultra luxurious lingerie boutique La Perla on some very enticing designs. If you peek through the gallery below you will find undergarments that glamorously pad hips, and shoulders, and oh yes my friends you will find some wearable cones alongside delicate lace and unique embroidery.
Now for the music, Jean Paul Gaultier and La Perla are launching the collection tomorrow night in collaboration with New York City Opera.
Shop For Opera is a shopping event for young opera patrons that will be an indulgent soiree full of wine, chocolate, women in fine lingerie and performances by New York City Opera artists.
What a fabulous event. If I lived in New York I would undoubtably be in attendance. If you do live in NYC (lucky you) here is a link to the invitation, which also gives you a 20% discount on your most wanted items. I have my eye on the shoulder-pad bra.
I hope to get my hands on some photos from the event, and when I do, you'll be the first to know.
