Here’s to taking a clothing trend of 2011 and applying to swimwear, merging it with 2011′s bikini trends to stunning effect: thank you, La Perla. Skirted swimsuits can often go so wrong, but this one, incorporating the high slit we’re currently loving so much, doesn’t fail on any level. This is pool side glamour that both covers up and reveals, that’s both sporty and glamorous.
Elsewhere in Jean Paul Gaultier’s collection for the label you’ll find other flattering shapes like draping cowl necks and bikinis with plenty of ruching and gathering in the right places.
I need not even have to mention that the lingerie component of the collection is more than worth a look, stunningly detailed and unique as you would expect, you can view more from Jean Paul Gaultier for La Perla‘s 2011 swimwear & lingerie collection by clicking on the thumbnails.
