Is there any other material that leads such a double life? Lace is at the same time fussy and restrained yet provocative and sexy. It’s province of grandmothers and antique shops but also keeps stores like La Perla and Victoria Secret in business.

And that’s just for starters. Somehow lace manages to do it all.
