Editorial Reviews

Review

"Lingerie & Desire, loosely timed to mark the company’s upcoming 60th anniversary, brings together many of the great images used to promote the brand since the early 1960s. Now, removed from the mundane context of seasonal marketing, the artistry of the La Perla portfolio is given the showcase it deserves." ~LingerieTalk.com

"Sophisticated boudoir photography is always naughty yet so nice. The words detail the evolution of the famed Italian brand, but the pictures tell the story. What's not to like about page after page of beautiful women in luxury scanties?" ~New York Daily News
 
"The first monograph entirely dedicated to the story of La Perla, one of Italy’s most revered couture lingerie brands. The gorgeously illustrated book chronicles the history of the label and showcases the many exceptional pieces produced by the house over the years." ~Gayot.com
