French designer Jean-Paul Gaultier has dressed some of Hollywood’s most fashionable faces, and more recently, the stars’ stylish kids through the launch of his children’s line.

But now, the designer is dabbling into the world of underthings with a provocative lingerie collection created for La Perla. The partnership between the two “was bound to happen,” Gaultier tells Wedding Style Magazine of his collaboration with the Italian lingerie house. “Lingerie is part of my DNA: I have always used it in my collections. With La Perla, I have found a perfect partner.”

The pieces — from Madonna-inspired pointed cup bras to curve-hugging slips — were created to make a powerful statement for women. “I would like to give women freedom to be who they are,” he says. “I personally think women are the stronger sex; that they are more intelligent and much stronger than us men, and I always wanted to show a strong woman who seduces because she wants to.”

Gaultier’s sexy lingerie collection can be found at La Perla and Jean-Paul Gaultier boutiques and exclusive stores worldwide.
