Jean Paul Gaultier Debuts Swimwear for La Perla

Jean Paul Gaultier for La Perla Collection Créateur Spring 2012

>> Jean Paul Gaultier will offer swimwear alongside his second lingerie collection for La Perla, available in January for Spring 2012. Presented during last week's couture shows in Paris, the new collection features a wearable — and sexy — assortment of bandeau bikinis, bondage-inspired one-pieces, and cut-out tank suits. A pool-ready palette of pale turquoise, sand, orange, and black gets a dose of JPG's trademark femme-fatale fierceness via lattice detailing, draped necklines, and sheer panels, while side-laced mini skirts and draped-back halter dresses make appearances in the form of cover-ups.
