Why is it that all our new fashion tights must appear all at once?!
Autumn/Winter has left us reeling from the sheer amount of fashion tights within our reach, and it’s my job to tell you about as many of them as I can.
Well, I’ve already written on Trasparenze’s new range and the latest designs from Henry Holland, so why not a new brand today?
Oroblu, one of our most treasured partners in high end leg wear, has a stunning repertoire this season.
Let us begin at the beginning!
Angelika Fashion Tights. This is a truly magnificent and luxurious item of leg wear. While it’s more elaborate that some of the products that inspired it, Angelika is still a design will a lot of free space to work with.
Leaving this much sheer fabric around the bluish silvery motifs gives them their punch. The legs are a sparing 20 denier, meaning that they are ideal for evening wear and gatherings.
Keeping this Autumn/Winter piece a sheer is quite the bold move. Shouldn’t all Winter fashion tights be as thick and wooly as humanly possible? Well, no. Keeping this item sheer gives it an even more powerful effect on the eyes. When you see the lavish patterning, the delicate details would be somewhat lost if these fashion tights were too thick.
The design itself is a double helix of roses and vines. I shall make sure a Best Of post for floral tights goes up soon, as these past few months have been dominated by them.
The ever popular choice of roses must not have worked entirely well here. It seems that Oroblu experienced a dilemma, that a flower would be too small and a larger flower would look out of place. The fix, a closely packed bundle of them, to make sure these fashion tights have a huge and robust motif.
The colours are even more inventively chosen. Cornflower blue and violet alongside the ever present black. The blues and purples chosen are ideal for fashion tights with this kind of metallic patina. They have a lush, metal-like quality and they’re quickly putting Angelika Fashion Tights at the top of my list for luxury evening wear.
Angelika is a fantastic product, no doubt, but Oroblu have a lot more in the works for us this season. Before I get round to tackling the task of posting about them, why not tell me why I’m totally wrong about everything through Twitter?!
It’s the single best way to start talking to me! Or you can leave a blog comment, the snail mail of the Internet.
Either way, TTFN!
