WOMEN OF LA PERLA. Rizzoli International Publications, Inc., New York, 2016. 240 pp. with 200 col. ills. 35 x 27 cm. ISBN 9780847847723 In English.
Due date: October 2016. Publisher's description: La Perla is celebrated for its luxurious, sexy, and ultra elegant lingerie. The Italian brand was founded by Ada Masotti, an artisan skilled in the tradition of handcrafted Bolognese corsetry, in 1954 when she opened a small lingerie boutique in Bologna. The name "La Perla" ("The Pearl") was inspired by a jeweler's case lined with red velvet in which Masotti's first lingerie creations were transported. Masotti combined her impeccable craftsmanship and understanding of women's body to fulfill their growing desire to possess undergarments that were just as beautiful (and functional) as the clothes they wore over them. The continuous dedication to artisanship, to fine quality, and to women's needs and desires has transformed this small Italian boutique into a world-renowned brand that now includes swimwear, fragrance, and accessories. Women of La Perla is a passionate exploration of La Perla's feminine universe through the celebration of the special women featured in the brand's most current advertising campaigns shot by the iconic photography duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot, lingerie catalogues, haute couture runway shows, and within the pages of American Vogue and Vogue Italia.
