La Perla Has a New Creative Director and a Surprising New Approach to Ready-to-
One of the world's most luxurious lingerie brands as a new creative director. La Perla remains best known for its glamorous bras, panties, corsets and slip dresses, but Julia Haart wants to reformulate the brand's ready-to-wear offering.
“What we’re trying to do with this ready-to-wear collection is to bring something newer to the market. I think women want a new choice, and what I mean by that is I think women have been told their entire lives that you have to suffer for beauty. Well, I don’t believe in that, and I would like to give women a new choice,” she began. “I thought about all the things that bother me about clothing, like those pieces that you just have so much difficulty finding that I would call the essentials of any woman’s wardrobe, and that’s what I geared this collection toward. I thought of the items that I had a hard time finding or that never fit well, like a white button-down shirt that stays and doesn’t move, isn’t cut for a man or is too tight—just those simple basics!”
Haart's vision has elements of Donna Karan's original philosophy -- granted not the perfect white shirt -- but a sense that women can be sensual in a suit.
“I love that La Perla has this sexy, sensual kind of image, and I certainly would never want to change La Perla’s DNA. My idea is that you can embrace your femininity and it doesn’t have to be only in your undergarments. If you’re wearing a suit, a dress, it should be molded to a female form while still being professional, beautiful, chic, elegant—one does not negate the other,” she said.
Haart is such a believer in comfort that she developed proprietary arch molds for hiding gel insoles inside her sexy heels.
What Do Women Leaders Have in Common by Sharmilla Ganesan The Atlantic
Whether the woman is German chancellor Angela Merkel, Bangladeshi prim minister Sheikh Hasina, Liberian president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf (pictured above), or Agnes Igoye of Uganda, who works with her government to counter human trafficking; Ikram Ben Said, the founder of Tunisian women’s-rights organization Aswat Nissa; and Sairee Chahal of India, who started SHEROES, a digital platform that helps women get back into the workforce -- researchers focused on female leadership are identifying common threads among the women.
Almost universally, women talk about finding their voices and their confidence at dinner-table conversations with their families. As daughters of engaged parents, the young women felt confident to express an opinion. Fathers seem to play a particularly important role in encouraging their daughters, as were mothers or older sisters who were leaders already.
Researcher Susan R. Madsen of Utah Valley University says that the path of women leaders doesn't typically look like men's:
“Men are more strategic and [tend to follow] a more linear path to becoming a leader. Women’s paths are much more emergent. They tend to not necessarily look ahead and think, ‘I want to be on top.’ Women would point to a number of experiences—motherhood, or working with a non-profit, or sitting on a board, as shaping their path to becoming leaders,” she said. Madsen likens this to a “patchwork quilt” of experiences—an aggregate that is more clear and cohesive together than as distinct parts.
Another common thread among women leaders is being held to a higher standard than men. For more insights read on at The Atlantic.
