In Brazil, the lingerie stores are usually tiny, with only some products displayed in the store, and the rest of them are kept closed in drawers – you have to ask the shopkeeper to show you what you are looking for. Research showed Brazilian women, like those in the rest of the world, want to see every option, want to touch, want to be able to choose for themselves with liberty and discretion.
Therefore, Taye was projected to provide exactly what women are looking for. All products available are displayed in the store, and are organized by colors, according to cromotherapy concept. The store has 3 distinct areas: the Comfort Zone, where the day-by-day products are; the Sophisticated Zone, with night and sexy lingeries, and the Bride’s room, a space dedicated to products specially designed for brides. Also, there are couches, a coffee corner and a huge fitting room. The store is located on the second floor of a historical house, which makes it private and discrete.
TayÃª means precious, adorable and darling. Just everything a woman wants to be. The store offers a complete range of products of the greatest lingerie brands in Brazil, and also sleepwear and loungewear (a concept that is quite new to Brazil).
