“Shades of Innocence and Intrigue”
Last month, we had the opportunity — and pleasure — to see Simone Pérèle’s SS14 collection in person at their showroom here in NYC. Simone Pérèle’s Caroline Soulagnat walked us through the collection with hanger after hanger of gorgeous pieces. The brand’s SS14 collection is described as revealing “…a woman of intrigue and appeal. She is easy going yet multifaceted, romantic yet mysterious, deliberate yet spontaneous.”
As always, each collection is inspired by art, travel and culture. Quality fabrics, embroidery, laces and ribbons are selected with infinite care by the brand to enhance a woman’s natural curve. Along with some gorgeous designs, Simone Pérèle’s SS14 collection showcases the brand’s innovation with state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques like 3D knit technology in their Andora range and aloe vera infused lace in Caressence.
We’ve highlighted nine ranges from the collection: Inspiration, Insolence, Ingénue, Insomnie, Amour, Révélation, Céleste, Andora and Caressence. Each range includes a photo and a description from Simone Pérèle. Additionally, we’ve added a few close-up shots of garments we took at the showroom.

(Editor’s note: product descriptions provided by Simone Pérèle.)
Simone Pérèle believes that every woman deserves to be exquisitely comfortable in her lingerie. Divinely soft “Lotion Touch” microfiber (one of the finest knits ever created), hugs curves to perfection with a silky-smooth sheen surface. Folded, stitch-free microfiber edges draw pure lines and a seamless finish against the skin, so that no elastic or creases are felt. Adjustable straps complete the collection, offering three different positions (straight, racerback and halter) for the most discreet look under clothing.
Inspiration is also a work of art in the making. Each season, Simone Pérèle artisans reinvent the collection by adding a new creative design element. This season, Inspiration makes its debut in alluring Midnight Blue and with a chic assortment of six straps that decorate the shoulders, including Simone Pérèle’s signature guipure accents, and an ultra-sensual lace back. Showcasing Simone Pérèle’s iconic style, each piece is signed with a silver-studded brand logo.
Insolence embodies the woman who is unafraid to be herself, and seizes her life with unabashed passion. Her sense of freedom is illustrated with dove-like embroidered wings using Saint Gallen embroidery. Supremely soft to the touch, each wing is worked in a dynamic juxtaposition of matte versus brilliance. Ethereal wings adorn bra cups in perfect symmetry, angled towards the straps to create a harmonious design that simply soars.
Insolence honors the multifaceted aspects of what it is to be a woman, and her beautifully complex, sometimes contradictory nature. In White, Insolence expresses her purity of spirit; Plum calls forth her mysteriousness and depth, and Flame awakens her wild, provocative nature. Her exquisite nature and unbridled independence is captured in every detail: satin straps, pleated bows, the touch of satin framing the bust, and the hints of radiance emanating from the embroidered wings. Insolence illuminates the freedom of the spirit.
With its gracefully draped fabrics, muted colors and pure lines, Ingenue captures an alluring feminine innocence. Yet as is the nature of a woman, the collection embodies a sophisticated and undeniably sensual essence. Inspired by haute couture gowns of the 1960’s, Ingenue presents a play of delicate embroidery and airy fabrics softly draped in chic, asymmetrical designs, creating a striking silhouette. This exquisite draping is made with a single layer of divinely light fabric created with the finest knit and threads for a look that appears enticingly veiled.
The effect is seamless, pure and simply ethereal. This almost angelic innocence is offset with a wink to a woman’s more refined sensuality and sophistication. Beautifully placed floral guipure elegantly embellishes this collection. Ingenue is made complete with two soft colors that echo the feminine nature of the designs: luminous and romantic Blush and a more modern and mysterious two-toned Shadow.
Insomnia dives deep into the web of a woman’s most profound and intimate dreams. Like a sparkling sky, Insomnia reflects the intricate layers of a woman’s psyche, illuminated with captivating embroidery, guipure embellishments and celestial lace. Inspired by the renowned craftsmanship of a famous French embroiderer, Insomnia’s beauty is awakened with gently angled flowers holding a world of precious adornments: stars, suns, teardrops, dancing ringlets and luminous pearls. This magnificent play of embroidery and guipure is set upon a backdrop of layered voile. Simone Pérèle explores the facets of Insomnia with three color interpretations: the soft dreaminess of Ivory, the magnetic passion behind Black, and the carefree freshness of summer captured by Sky.
The supremely refined Amour collection sets a new standard of elegance by combining Leavers lace with a graphic, textured-style knit. The floral lace motif appears in brush strokes and is magnified by the play of matte and sheen, giving it depth. Tulle adds a light, airy feel to the collection, appearing at the center gore of the bras or in a triangle at the back of panties. The width of intricate guipure lace straps increases with each cup size.
