Tooshie is a line of luxurious and glamorous swimwear launched by Natascha Sayn Wittgenstein in 2007.
Tooshie was born of the desire to find the perfect swimsuit - glamorous, well-cut, and just a little edgy.
Each design, made in Italy using only the finest materials, offers the perfect mix of sophistication and support.
Tooshie offers ultra-flattering beachwear with the perfect fit to flatter every woman's body. The name Tooshie refers to the line's quest to give its wearers the perfect derrière. Each design has been adjusted to the millimeter to offer the perfect mix of sophistication, cover and support.
All pieces are double lined and hand finished. Hardware is custom made in Italy.Ultra flattering and practical, Tooshie's chic bikinis and swimsuits are the last word in beach and pool -side glamour.
Natascha Sayn Wittgenstein was born in New York City and raised in Europe and the United States by her German father and Swedish mother. Her first taste for fashion, design and aesthetics came from her mother, Birgitta af Klercker, one of the original "top models" of the 1960s.
Natascha studied at the prestigious Camondo School of design in Paris and worked for Christian Lacroix's haute couture studio, luxury e-retailer Vivre, Devi Kroell and Nina Ricci, where she was studio design director, before launching Tooshie in 2007.
A fashion-conscious, luxury swimwear brand, Tooshie was launched with a simple goal in mind: to design swimsuits that would perfectly fit any woman's derriere, with a timeless, elegant and comfortable feel. Tooshie quickly gained valuable supporters (Net a Porter ordered the first collection in full and American Vogue devoted a full page to Tooshie's launch) and is now distributed in 75 of the world's best boutiques, specialty retailers and department stores, including Scoop NY, Montaigne Market, Printemps, Aishti, Mohrmann and the Webster.
In addition, the line has been editorialized in all major fashion press.
Natascha recently started a collaboration with French brand APC to create fresh, exclusive designs under the Tooshie name and retailing in all the APC stores.
She is working on a menswear and matching children's wear line.
Natascha finds inspiration in the luminous, colorful works of German artist Anselm Reyle and in the 1970s pop aesthetics of photographers like Bert Stern and Slim Aarons.
"I wanted the collection to take the best of the late 1960s, early 1970s style and give it a contemporary feel"
"My design philosophy is about creating elegant quality and comfort in fashion. I do this by combining luxurious fabrics and creative tailoring in ways that are both contemporary and classic."
