La Perla Launches Bras Made with 24K Gold Thread
Now this is what we call a true treasure chest! For its 60th anniversary, Italian lingerie company La Perla is offering a capsule of gilded made-to-measure underpinnings that drape your most voluptuous assets in 24k gold.
Sure, the cost is in the thousands---but don't we all know that your goods deserve only the very best? For example, this racy bra's intricate latticework may look like lace, but it's actually gold filigree, a material created by weaving threads into twists to achieve a macramé-like effect. After one month, 26 measurements, and two fittings, the finishing touches are applied by hand in Bologna, Italy. Titillating, isn't it? Scroll down for a few more of our fantasy favorites, available by custom order at La Perla boutiques.
