La Perla SS18 Catwalk Show
La Perla hosted its Spring Summer 2018 catwalk show as part of Sands Macao Fashion Week in China.
The Italian lifestyle brand partnered with The Venetian Macao luxury hotel to showcase its 70 piece ready-to-wear collection modelled by the likes of Natasha Poly and Liu Wen. Show attendees included Fan Bingbing and Hu Bing.
Creative Director Julia Haart explored the juxtaposing properties that exist in stones: the resilient and fragile, fixed and fluid, matter and motion. Inspired by their formation, she finds beauty in the incongruity of their rough, immutable surfaces and the stunning veins and fluid markings found layered beneath.
“Things that stand still don’t evolve,” explains Haart. “This collection shows that our conception of humanity needn’t be static, even for all that makes it immutable and timeless, change is the only way forward.”
