Luxury Lingerie and Bodywear - Introducing Tatu Couture!

Tuesday 7 May 2013

Back in January I discovered a new luxury lingerie brand called Tatu Couture. Inspired by tattoos, talented designer Luisa Sidoli has created a range of lingerie and bodywear pieces aimed at fashionistas. I don't often drool over every item in a collection but Tatu Couture had me mesmerized from the get-go. 

Underwear as outerwearPhotos by Liz Green

I think luxurious lingerie is definitely the most interesting, the high street can be so boring and I think it pays to invest in good underwear. I'm always on the lookout for something unique and as someone who wouldn't get a permanent tattoo, I really like the idea of wearing ink inspired pieces.

I almost fainted when we received an email from Tatu Couture a few months later, asking if we'd like to style a piece of lingerie as outerwear. OH MY. My answer was obviously hellz yeah and I knew which piece I wanted to style because I was instantly drawn to it, it had to be the incredible Adele bodysuit.

I've always had a thing for peacocks and my favourite tattoo (spotted on a travelling pal) is of a peacock feather. The body is made from a soft and flattering smooth fabric set against sheer mesh panels. The back is out of this world, it features an exquisite peacock design...Wowza, right?

Although I'm brave enough to wear underwear as outerwear, I'm not brave enough to go without underwear which is why I'm also wearing a backless strapless bra. This bra is pure magic.

I chose to wear it with my lace H&M skirt, a leather jacket, heeled ankle boots and some of my favourite jewellery/accessories. I love that it can be worn as lingerie or outerwear. I can definitely see myself wearing it with some jeans and heels in the future. At £180 it's certainly an investment piece but I'll treasure it for years to come and it is made in Britain. It arrived beautifully packaged and would also make a wonderful gift...*hint hint* ;)

Have you heard of Tatu Couture before? Would you wear underwear as outerwear?

    Oh, also I'd love if you'd vote for me in the Company blog awards, best fashion - newcomer, thanks :)

  25. Wowwww, this is amazing! It took me a while to work out it was on mesh and not actually your back - I was confused! Haha, I've always wanted a peacock feather tattoo, apparently it's back luck to have peacock feathers inside your house but my mom has always loved them and has them in vases round the house like flowers so I don't believe that ha.

    You look lovely as per usual Tara <3
