The Italian luxury lingerie company La Perla was born in 1954 in the kitchen of Ada Marsotti — a Bolognese housewife trained in the art of hand-crafted corsetry. Marsotti’s impeccably crafted, hand-sewn undergarments instantly impressed Bologna’s shopkeepers as well as upper-crust ladies who admired their delicate cuts, durable fabrics, and distinctive detailing — including diamonds, macramé, embroidery, and soutache (a type of looped trim). Now one of the world’s leading lingerie brands, La Perla offers a diverse collection of sexy underwear for both women and men as well as luxe swimwear, nightwear, and fragrances. Launched in 2010, La Perla Collection Createur melds the feminine and seductive aesthetic of La Perla’s lingerie with the cutting-edge, experimental style of French haute couture designer Jean-Paul Gaultier — maker of Madonna’s iconic cone bras, shock rocker Marilyn Manson’s stage costumes, and fetish-inspired fashion collections. Waist-cinching corsets, frilly baby-doll sets, high-cut briefs, push-up bras (including the top-selling Havana), intricate bustiers, and flowing silk robes conjure images of 1930s Hollywood and glamorous Parisian boudoirs. The label also includes boxers, briefs, and t-shirts for men and Shapecouture, a flattering line of women’s shapewear.
