Valentine’s Day Page 1
If anyone should be a master of the art of seduction, it’s the man behind some of the most elegant, provocative, and covetable lingerie money can buy. Yes, we’re talking about La Perla, and at last night’s presentation of the label’s fall 2013 collection, we spoke with creative director Giovanni Bianchi about the story behind his newest selection of underpinnings and what he thinks is the ideal lacy little gift for Valentine’s Day. His answer might surprise you.
Valentine’s Day is probably the one day we can bust out all our heart-adorned clothes and heart-shaped accessories without feeling cheesy. Well, okay, maybe a little cheesy, but whatever, it’s Valentine’s Day! We’ve rounded up some of our favorites on the market right now, from an over-the-top dress that nails the romantic V-Day look down pat to a simple sweater with subtle heart-shaped elbow patches. And if you’re really not a fan of the holiday, consider this the perfect opportunity to get those cool Comme des Garçons x Converse kicks you’ve been eyeing.
Of the nearly $16 billion retailers expect Americans to spend on Valentine’s Day, men will spend twice as much of it as women. Are we surprised? Well, yes and no.
