Porzia T was founded in September 2008 by Paola Tessariol, a young and talented fashion designer who, after gaining professional experience at some of the most prestigious Italian fashion houses, decided to accomplish her unique project by aiming to reinvent her idea of underwear combining the finest materials with a timeless luxury design.
A collection of lingerie and accessories inspired by Porzia, the famous character of William Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice. The designer “dedicates her creations to this ideal protagonist, as she embodies the contemporary women’s universe with her beauty, nobility, passion and pride.”
Porzia T means luxury temptations: getting spoiled by the luxury of garments dedicated to women’s senses and pleasure, to their desire to seduce by wearing precious and delicate fabrics that indulge the senses and take them into a dimension of sophisticated intimacy, a private and malicious limbo where luxury becomes a daily pleasure.
This first collection is called “Collezione Privata”, or Private Collection. The designer describes it as follows: “Dreams, emotions, rarefied atmospheres. A game of seduction where the key elements are satin, the tones of white, rose and black, as well as sparkling crystals that are applied like drops of jewels on the garments, which are all entirely lined with the purest silk to softly caress the body. A collection characterized by a distinctive mark: the wrinkled elastic band that creates ruched effects.”
Strings are introduced in three versions: a basic one, another one with triple band at the back and a more sophisticated model with double band at the hips figuring a bow with a coquette touch. Mini knickers as well are developed in different versions: basic or more sophisticated with five bands, front and back, for a seductive geometry of lines that dress the skin and leave it “undressed” at the same time. Satin shorts are must-haves, with rounded lines at the hips that follow the silhouette, thus transforming the garment into a light and fluttering fancy.
The range of bras unveils very chic models: triangle cups, ultra compact push-up bras and strapless corset bras. The latter is also interpreted in a sexier version, with bands reaching the neck from the breast and creating a collar-necklace in a can-can style.
For glamorous nights Porzia T offers a range of haute couture nightwear: corsets with bands and collar-necklace, laced up with a bow falling at the back; tops with bands, collar-necklace with a bow and a low-cut V back; soft baby-dolls with triangle cups, cut on the front to catch a glimpse of body and belly.
And for even more irresistible emotions Porzia T has created a refined “Pleasure Kit” containing soft handcuffs, ties to be worn as cuffs or as a collar, or for the hair or even as a garter, plus a satin embroidered blindfold. To complete the range of accessories a soft and delicate silk satin glove; another element of seduction, another way to indulge women’s luxury temptations.
And at nightfall, when even the most passionate desires and fancies fade away, the women dressed by Porzia T luxuriate and protect themselves from sunlight with eye masks bordered by flounces, an unexpected accessory that rings down the curtain on your private boudoir.
