A little more than just black lacy undergarms.
Some brands hone in on exquisite fabrication. Others, perhaps a signature silhouette or style. La Perla, however, focuses on its wearer’s. The story it tells. The confidence it bestows. Lingerie well and truly made for women.
Without need for words of excess, La Perla luxurious collection of delicate nightwear and brassiere — the kind that slips on like robes of royalty — is well-known and widely loved. All meticulously hand-crafted at the House’s own atelier in Bologna from fine Italian silk satin with trimmings finished with time-honoured techniques of Florentine Frastaglio embroidery.
The new Lee Gardens boutique honour such exquisite pieces on display. Interiors of boudoir-like decadence with a comforting feeling of familiarity — like a lavish extension of a dressing room only seen in dreams. Soft, delicate tones of powdery blushes, pale peaches, and glimmering hints of gold, complemented by large runways-worthy mirrors and chic furnishings, note: the light herringbone floorboards, velvet armchairs and Parisian-style chandelier that arc skywards with spherical fixtures.
La Perla’s designs have always been pieces attuned to understanding and empowering the female form. Silhouettes that support rather than squeeze. Fabrics that graze rather than scratch. Qualities that are prolific in the signature Maison collection through wearable silhouettes that, while visually a masterpiece, impress generously only when slipped on; unrivalled comfort upon well-fitted forms, in styles that stand the test of time.
The new ‘Tree of Life’ collection takes aim towards a similar standard. A collection that, promises sensuality but prioritises comfort, empowers with message on positivity and growth. The range of baby dolls, robes, and pyjama sets in two shades, rose pink and royal blue, are spun from silk satin and natural cotton, finished with lashings of French Leaves lace. Design is simple. Details are subtle. Pieces that whisper instead of shout. Peer in close to admire the florid swirls of dreamy blooms and enchanting bifurcations that give the collection its name.
A chest full of La Perla’s lace underthings is a beautiful sight. Perhaps a gift for beloved this Valentine’s Day? Or simply just-because for a weekend devoted to self-care. Cheesy flicks and sugary indulgences included.
The ‘Tree of Life’ and ‘Maison’ collection is available at the now-open Lee Gardens boutique. La Perla, G11A, 28 Yun Ping Road, Lee Gardens Two, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong, +852 2368 8848
