Gilda & Pearl AW13

Gilda and Pearl AW13 Lipstick Kimono

“Lingerie to Love — Made & Handfinished in the UK”

Gilda & Pearl’s AW13 takes a darker, more sensuous turn compared to their recent SS13 collection. Designer Diane Houston offers four ranges: Spellbound, Lila, Lipstick and How to Marry a Millionaire in a color palette dominated by deep, rich pinks and plums along with amethyst and black.

“It is sensuous, opulent and flirtatious”

The inspiration behind the color choices?

Houston explained that the “…Lipstick collection was inspired by a scene in How to Marry a Millionaire — specifically, Marilyn Monroe being fabulous and signing ‘Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend’ to all those helplessly captivated gents, how smart they looked.”

The collection offers babydolls, slips, bralettes, bras, panties, and kimonos made from silk, satin, stretch spot tulle and a Nottingham eyelash lace and French Lever’s lace.

“This season for us is all about indulgence and opulence in contrast to the airy SS13 collection,” said Houston. “It is sensuous, opulent and flirtatious. We loved the contrast of the amethyst silk in the ‘Spellbound’ collection contrasted with the delicate rose French lace — the perfect mix of seductive and romantic.”

As with all of Gilda & Pearl’s garments, the new AW13 collection is made and hand finished in the UK. The name ‘Gilda & Pearl’ represents the designer’s truest inspirations: the bold femme fetale film character played by Rita Hayworth in the 1946 film Gilda and Pearl, an encapsulation of the meaning of unique luxury.
