With Valentine’s Day looming on the horizon, Sassy’s thoughts are turning to love… Meals out and flowers are temporary tokens of affection that we love to receive, but only leave a fleeting memory of a beautiful gesture. Lingerie, however, is the gift that keeps on giving, both to you and to him every time you put it on! There’s nothing like the indulgent feeling of slipping into some frivolously fabulous underwear that only you (and later him!) know is under your workaday suit or jeans.
One name in the world of lingerie is absolutely synonymous with luxury, and that is La Perla, the Italian brand that whispers “sexy” in the classiest of ways. Little scraps of delicious silk and fine lace give you that va-va-voom and a wiggle in your walk like nothing else.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day (or a Spring fling!), La Perla is unveiling their new Spring/Summer 2010 collection in their Hong Kong stores. Stop into the newly-opened boutique at The Peninsula, or at ifc mall to ooh and aah over the palest pastel push-ups and brazen black balconettes. The “underwear as outerwear” look will be a big trend for the coming season, so popping on one of La Perla’s gorgeous corsets or camisoles under a shoulder-padded jacket or cashmere knit will take you from day time to date night. Dare to bare a hint of cleavage, or “unintentionally” show a peeking-out sliver of the lace at the top of your bra to give a come-hither hint of what’s underneath.
Special Valentine Promotion
Until the end of February, spend HK2,500 at La Perla to receive a perfectly sinful box of handmade Vero Chocolates (worth HK450) which will seduce any true chocolate lover and get those endorphins flowing. Even better, the Chocolates come with a Soutache mask and provocative Dice Game to pit you against your partner in a romantic duel to the…naked.
