Now that China is on the world’s spotlight, inevitably minds of lingerie designers are wandering to far east from time to time. Even if it’s so unknown and full of secrets, you can’t deny the charm radiating from the ancient and nowadays culture.
La Perla is taking Asian lingerie to the mainstream shops all over the Western world with it’s “Oriental Suite” collection, Fall/Winter of 2012-13.
Silk kimono robes, frequent flower elements suggest Japanese and Chinese clothing styles have made biggest influence to this collection. Merging oriental silk mastery with Italian craftsmanship in lace something beautiful comes out.

The looks are quite inventive and in terms of modernism, in-line with where Asian countries are going to at the moment. Designs are pulsating with luxury, that is also quite a well seen quality once you get to know Chinese culture better.
I doubt many of those undergarments can be used as underwear, if you know what I mean – they shouldn’t be that comfortable to wear under the dresses. Most likely La Perla “Oriental Suite” pieces are meant to be seen, not hidden, anyways.
