>> 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.
We got a quick glimpse at Jean Paul Gaultier's collection for La Perla back in June, and although the line doesn't debut until November, here is another peek — Victoria Beckham is wearing one of the bras on the November issue of Marie Claire! It's very Madonna, shoulder pads and all, but Victoria works it with a totally modern twist. Presumably the shoulder pads are removable for when you want to wear it as a, well, bra, rather than a top. See more Victoria below, then hear her gush about her fabulous life.
