La Perla: Spring-Summer 2018
La Perla creative director Julia Haart has obviously invented the SS 2018 collection after a visit to a mineralogy museum, where she was inspired by the stands with precious & semi-precious stones. Like an experienced jeweler, she explores their hardness and fragility, immobility and fluidity, motions & stillness, finds beauty in contrast between their coarse and even rough surface, magnificent veins and elegant inclusions.
Prints and details are fascinating: La Perla manages to convey sharp edges of amethyst, dark veins of turquoise, wavy agate pattern and mysterious opal flickering.
That is the way how Haart continues to express the new understanding of femininity, around which all creativity of the designer, who declared herself a feminist, turns. Considering that La Perla was founded 60 years ago by a feminist Ada Mazotti, the direction is right and the time plays nice.
Haart has fished out many findings from the archives of the brand and supplemented them with her vision. Sleeveless maxi dresses with sensual neckline and a deep vent to the thigh, perfectly fitting trouser suits, short lingerie style dresses with thin straps, trench coats with wide belts, jackets with fur collar – this is the wardrobe of emanсipe of the XXI century: receptions, red carpet events, business meetings and visits.
La Perla is true to her favorite fabrics like silk, lace, satin, leather with reptile currying & lame, but changes the materials themselves. Adding elastane and high-tech threads to silk, Haart got a fabric that does not hinder movements being luxurious at that.
Shades are in tune with jewelry theme: ruby, turquoise, amethyst, pearl, coal-black. However, Haart believes that "immovable is not developing, and the collection shows that our concept of humanity should not be static - only changes allow us to go forward." That is why monochrome and natural gems’ patterns are diluted by the  prints of dragonflies and flowers.
The collection is already available in the stores of the brand in GUM, VESNA, Petrovsky Passage & St. Petersburg!
