Although tattoos have become more commonplace in the past few decades, there are still those women who shy away from permanently marking their skin. The luxury lingerie line Tatu Couture let’s you have all the fun of a tattoo while adding a splash of elegance to your life.
British based design brand, Tatu Couture, is the creation of Luisa Sidoli, a De Montfort University grad and former head lingerie designer at Ann Summers. Luisa has taken the tattoo trend a step further by creating an illusion line of luxury bras, panties and bodywear pieces inspired by the notion that “body art,” like lingerie, is a form of sensual expression. Her pieces incorporate everything from full back graphic designs to subtle and thought provoking quotes such as “Give your heart and soul to me and life will always be La vie en rose,” which is printed on mesh side panels on the La Vie En Rose Bodysuit. The ‘trompe l’oeil’ tattoo motifs are created in collaboration with professional tattoo artists to make sure they are as authentic as possible.
Adding an extra dimension to the collection, Tatu Couture styles are constructed of high-quality fabrics that mimic light control shapewear. Each piece pulls you in, giving you a smooth, sleek shape without feeling too constricting or confining. The collection comes in two different skin tones to help make the illusion pieces look even more real.
For the collection entitled “Sweet Surrender,” Tatu Couture has added ivory to its assortment in key silhouettes. This collection blends a subtle sophistication and rebelliousness with a play on retro styling and the alluring scene of Baroque Italian culture.
On Tatu Couture’s website, the lingerie is displayed in a dazzling array of angled shots. The company has added a special styling tip feature where it gives customers advice on how to pair the pieces together and/or how to wear them out of the bedroom!
