SockBox  is a true Latvian original. Back in 2008, SockBox has been creating several fashionable legwear collections a year including socks, stockings, garter belts and leggings.

 

SockBox positions itself as “sensual provocateur” and this April, the label officially pushes the boundaries of activities, by creating nightgowns and underwear. It’s not just about socks and stockings anymore!

 

After the cheeky and notorious 2011 “Film Noir” legwear “all in black” collection, which was inspired by the gangster movies of Hollywood’s Golden Age, and the Burlesque era, the brand new “Tete-A-Tete” is purely romantic, fragile and feminine.

“Tete-A-Tete” Fall/Winter 2012/2013 debuted during at Riga Fashion Week (RFW) and it was probably the most “erotogenic” show during the whole event. The 20th century look-alike collection dominated by exquisite garter belts, luxurious stockings with refine ribbons, sensuous monochrome silk robes in light pastel tones.

Sophisticated, yet provocative, each SockBox piece is a masterpiece, hand-made from the highest quality fabric and lace, emphasizing a woman’s figure in order to highlight the beauty of her body.

“The Tete-A-Tete woman is free, living the moment and its charm. Undoubtedly, Diva — mega independent and absolutely uncompromising! She is looking for her own, unique style; why should she follow fashion trends?!” manifests the designer of SockBox, Inese Krumina.
