Zebra - Rattlesnake Legs Electrify Fashion Week
From zebra legs to a rattlesnake look, legs will be in the spotlight as Fashion Week begins.
Thigh High Printed Stocking
Sheer purple rattlesnake stay up stockings as seen on the left, dramatize the legs.
"The reptile printed fishnet has been surprisingly successful", commented Edward Miccinati design director for Stockingirl. "We're offering them in opaque tights, opaque leggings, sheer-to-waist pantyhose, sheer thigh highs stockings, and on fishnet."
Printed Blue Pinwheel
The printed blue pinwheel print fishnet stockings pictured on the right engross the legs and enhances any outfit. The electrifying varieties of colors draw immediate attention to the legs.
Snake and reptilian prints have shown to be a popular fashion statement this season - on and off the runways.
"Hosiery is not just looked at as a fantasy item or accessory any longer."
"Young girls and women are learning to see fashion leg wear not only as a highly wearable item, but an additional must-have apparel item to wear with their skirts, heels, and boots," says Edward Miccinati, design director for the line.
Because of Stockingirl's close relationship with top stylists and designers, the company will be introducing a number of authentic designer prints and patterns that will be featured on the runways for Heatherette, Baby Phat, Nicole Romano, Tamsen, Moschino, and Just Cavalli.
This season Stockingirl will come on strong by continuing its popular printed leg wear collections.
"We have only begun to show our creativity when it comes to the print market," remarks Miccinati. Stockingirl will carry over traditional styles, such as the well-received zebra sheer to the waist pantyhose (pictured below), ultra sheer cheetah print stockings (pictured right) and ultra sheer tiger print stockings (pictured above).
Will be exploring updated re-colored animal print looks in varying patterns for 2005.
Regal baroque and floral patterns will also continue to be signature Stockingirl leg wear styles, while venturing into both bright and subtlety soft color palettes.
Patterning this upcoming season will in general be more feminine, more vivid, more intense, and more creative when it comes to overlaying and juxtaposing disparate motifs.
Paisley will be embossed over delicate floral and dotted and striped with stunning color mixes, chic phrases will be imprinted on a collage of cultural symbols and colorful swatches.
The embracing of rich colors, ethnic-inspired prints, ornate design and vivid washes will be the newest stylistic approach this upcoming season.
Stockingirl continually proves that any color is the new black when in comes to leg wear.
Though the company's color palette is already extensive, offering 26 colors in key styles, there will be a number of new colors making their way into their hosiery line, including: plum, sea foam, clover, and differing shades of turquoise.
Luxurious silk stockings as seen above are part of this sexy, sensuous stocking line.
One thing is sure - legs this year will be more colorful and attention grabbing them every.
Leg wear is walking onto the scene everywhere: beneath boho skirts, stuffed in furry boots, peaking out of snake-skin stilettos, or paired with woolen legwarmers.
