The problem with deciding to “spice things up in the bedroom” is that once you start adding new props and costumes, you quickly run through a hackneyed repertoire—doctor, nurse, crotchless panties, crotchless pantyhose, nipple claps, etc. Maybe that’s what Jean Paul Gaultier was thinking when he signed up to design a collection for lingerie giant La Perla. For the line, due out in November, Gaultier has resurrected the cone bra—something your lover probably hasn’t seen on you yet. (If he has: impressive.) Check out some more images after the jump.
