If you didn’t celebrate St. Andrew’s Day last week, then you probably don’t know your haggis from hash browns. And you probably won’t care a dram about what’s being billed as the world’s first tartan lingerie set.
Ultimo Lingerie launched its limited edition Tartan set to mark Scotland’s national day on Nov. 30, and as a way for Ultimo CEO Michelle Mone to celebrate her own Scottish heritage.
The combo includes a balcony bra and thong and is made from printed satin with black lace trim and bows. It’s priced at $35 for the bra and $24 for the thong.
“Over the past few years tartan has shed its traditional roots and become synonymous with fashion, thanks to designers like Christopher Kane and Vivienne Westwood — and it‟s perfectly fitting that Ultimo should be the first lingerie brand to have their very own tartan,” said Mone, who last month was awarded an OBE for her contributions to the UK lingerie industry.
The Ultimo Tartan is currently only available through the company website or the UK retailer Debenhams, with sizes from 30-38 A-D.
This is a must-have for all the Scottish lassies out there who still have a hankering for the highland heather — and want to look like Brazilian model Raica Oliveira (above).
Ultimo’s teen label, Miss Ultimo, also offers a completely different tartan pattern called, appropriately, Highland Fling (below). It comes in a balcony bra and matching boyshort with lace trim and pink ribbon bow.
