Oroblu is one of the best selling brands on our sister site UK Tights, and now their lingerie range is available right here at UK Lingerie. We expected their items to be just as great as anything else they have made, meaning they would be superb. We were surprised to find that their lingerie was actually not what we expected. It was even better! Ordinarily, when designers first attempt a new type of clothing or a new category of design, they often have a hard time with their first few collections until their find their stride, but Oroblu is not like this. Their very first collection was stunning and every single release since has been original and superb, in terms of quality and originality. Taking inspiration from their long history of designing leg wear and their heritage as an Italian fashion brand, they have created a stunning and incredibly strong portfolio of work in just a few short years. Oroblu is making some of the most interesting lingerie right now, and that goes for brands and designers that both have come from other areas of the clothing world, and those that are lingerie purists. So what is it that has made their lingerie range so amazing? Well, one of the big factors we have already talked about is the fact that their history as a company informs their work today.
Oroblu have been designing beautiful leg wear for so long, using gorgeous ornate lace and patterned sheer fabrics to create amazing hosiery, that it has given them the skills necessary to create lingerie of that is similarly beautiful, sexy and flattering. The other component that we have previously mentioned is also heritage. It can often be a cliché that the Italians are chic, but it is indeed grounded in a great deal of fact.
The nation of Italy has valued quality craftsmanship since its inception and the nations that were built on that land before it did the same. Being a peninsula in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea gave Italy the perfect stage to become the centre of trade for so many nations around it, and naturally, this meant exotic and interesting goods and materials could be found in their ports and towns rather easily. This wealth of inspiration and raw materials has lead all of Italy to become a superb place to innovate with everything from technology to fashion, and innovate they have. Today, this means the finest clothes are being made from linens from Africa and cotton from Egypt, as well as Northern Italy’s own supply of native cotton.
