Since launching Ultimo in 1999, Michelle Mone OBE has remained a proud Scot, committed to her Celtic roots and heritage – and now the entrepreneur has taken her Scottish pride to a whole new level by launching her very own Ultimo tartan on St. Andrew’s Day, Scotland’s official national day!
Michelle, 39, who last week received an OBE for her services to the UK lingerie industry, developed the bespoke tartan for a limited edition range of lingerie, aptly named “Tartan‟, which launches in Debenhams stores and online today, Tuesday 30 November.
The gorgeous Scottish-inspired set is available in sizes 30–38 A-D priced at £27.00 for the balcony bra and £12.00 for the thong. The range is crafted from a luxurious printed satin and given a contemporary twist finished with a stylish black eye-lash lace and black ribbon bows.
Michelle Mone OBE, creator of Ultimo, said; “Whilst Ultimo is a globally recognised brand and stocked throughout the UK, I wanted to celebrate the brand‟s Scottish roots and create something fun and flirty in celebration of St Andrews Day.
“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. This range is gorgeous and every Scottish lassie should have a set in their lingerie drawer!”
Ultimo “Tartan‟ goes on sale today in Debenhams Stores nationwide and online at www.ultimo.co.uk . The range is modelled by Ultimo’s brand new “face & body”, Brazilian supermodel Raica Oliveira – former girlfriend of football superstar Ronaldo and ex Victoria Secrets model.
