The Story Of TOCCA
From the beaches of St. Lucia to a small 400 square foot apartment in the garment district, a group of friends with a vision for beautiful yet affordable clothes with designer details launched TOCCA in 1994. TOCCA’s early collection, from candy-colored terry cloth tube dresses to sari-inspired embroidered mini dresses, were an immediate hit for their unique styling, unexpected details and surprisingly affordable pricing. TOCCA was worn by the tastemakers of the day – from Christy Turlington and Helena Christensen to Sofia Coppola.
Named for the Italian word for “touch” after its intricate embroideries and luxurious fabrics, TOCCA combines the best of the romantic and exotic. Unabashedly feminine with an edge, TOCCA evokes the European sophisticate on holiday. Inspired by her travels, TOCCA brings a worldly playfulness to its family of products - a sensibility that led to the launch of TOCCA Beauty in 1997 with three unique and unusual products: a solid perfume, a dry oil skin smoother and a laundry delicate for fine washables in “Touch”, a gardenia-based fragrance. While unconventional categories with which to launch a beauty line, TOCCA Beauty was an immediate success.
TOCCA Bambini was introduced in 1994 in mini-versions of the main collection for the fashionable mom and tot. Intended for young girls aged 2-8, TOCCA’s Bambini collection pairs beautifully whimsical fabrics, often borrowed directly from the main Collection, with classic, simple and wearable bodies. The result is covetable dresses, skirts and coats that are beautiful without feeling too precious.

A Little Bit About The TOCCA Brigitte CandleThe spiciness of ginger combined with the sweetness of rhubarb and papaya evoke the sultriness and charm of screen siren Brigitte Bardot. Approximate burn time: 60 hours.
Previously, I had heard some wonderful things about TOCCA candles from a friend who was given a TOCCA candle as a gift, and has sworn by them every since! Both as a top choice for her own home fragrance needs, and as a go-to gift for friends and family. After having the opportunity to experience the TOCCA Brigitte Candle (pictured above) I now completely understand why she's so over the moon for TOCCA Candles! THEY.ARE. FABULOUS! Seriously, the Brigitte candle smells simply delicious and is comprised of the perfect blend of fragrance, for an experience like no other. While these candles scent the room nicely, they are not at all overpowering. These gorgeous candles are presented in an equally beautiful light blue box with an inspirational quote on the inside fold of the box (gift ready with the simply addition of a bow!).
TOCCA's beautiful luxurious candles would make the perfect gift for just about anyone on list this Holiday season!
