Late Chocolate is a Madrid-based manufacturer of sensual products. In the US and UK, “sensual products” tends to be a keyword for “sold in adult stores like Fascinations.” This isn’t typically a customer segment that carries much elegance. A few companies are trying to change that like Kiki de Montparnasse and Coco de Mer. Late Chocolate should be added to the list.
Late Chocolate is a welcome change from the companies offering 50-200 individual offerings. Their lingerie choices are relatively similar — skimpy, erotic, and with plenty of bows. The lines include Innocent, Executive, Party, Night, and Cocktail (presented in this photographic order). These distinctive lines do capture distinctive moods, but if you have the right body, any of them will make you look smashing.
I find the pieces very similar to Lascivious in the UK without as much fabric (which is sort of like comparing “skimpy” to “barely there”). I like the pieces and think they show a certain designer flair not found in the typical shrink-wrapped sensual product line ups from large manufacturers. The company also offers two accessories – a mask (shown below) and some cuffs. Again, the simplicity in their offering is welcomed.
Late Chocolate doesn’t offer direct sales (yet), so you can find them at these retailers: Female Touch, 1969, Angelique Devil, and Coffee, Cafe, & Kink. This young brand by women for women looks very promising. The company has even produced a short film found here, like some of their competitors.
