The Viol, or viol da gamba, is a typically 6-stringed instrument of the Renaissance period. It is played with a bow in a manner similar to its modern relative, the violin.

This little neck corset was deigned as a “just for fun” piece, although it is functional as well, of course. Viol goes equally well with jeans and a tee as it does dressed up for a winter night on the town.
