So I was catching up Scarlet’s Letter (one of my favorite lingerie blogs for 2014), and I ran across a new line I hadn’t heard of before – Toru and Naoko. Based out of Chile, this new lingerie brand is doing some very exciting things. And since I’ve been wanting to feature more brand that don’t hail from America, Europe, or Australia, I thought they’d make a great fit for our first ‘Lingerie of the Week‘ feature for March.
Not to be too repetitive, but I’m really digging the sheer black mesh, and I also quite like the crossover details for the bra. I don’t own any knickers with cut-outs on the sides, but I do like a high-waist silhouette. I also enjoy the slightly cheeky cut of the briefs, and the ruffle trim on both the bra and knickers. Better yet, both of these handmade pieces retail for only $76 (i.e. that’s the cost of the full set), a real bargain for custom, designer lingerie.
What do you think of Toru and Naoko? Would you purchase something like this?
