AW16 Hosiery Report: It’s All About the Tights!

Something has definitely changed in the fashion world. A fashion swift. An oh-so-expected change for hosiery fans. It’s all about the tights this season! Do you know how fashion magazines and many designers were totally against hosiery? Well, we are glad to tell you this has changed for good. Looking at our recent reports about London Fashion Week and other fashion shows, we were expecting hosiery to become more relevant in the fashion world. However, looking at the pages of most fashion magazines out there, you can quickly realise hosiery is the focus of many designers’ promotional campaigns. Just take a look at these five examples below.

AW16 Hosiery Report: The Chanel Lace Tights

Chanel has chosen actress Kristen Stewart’s leggy look to represent its Autumn Winter 2016 campaign. The actress isn’t especially tall and, so, her legs are not as long as professional models. You can’t deny, though, Kristen Stewart legs look spectacular on the Chanel lace tights. It was actress Diane Kruger the first person we spotted in the Chanel season signature hosiery. Imagine our surprise when we discovered Pierre Mantoux has a similar lace style to Chanel tights!


How amazing are the Pierre Mantoux Vanity Tights above, inspired in Chanel lace tights? We loved them so much we put a massive order. We didn’t want to sell out of these in the first week. Do you know what is the best thing about the Pierre Mantoux Vanity Tights? They are only £26.99, which is far below the price of some Chanel tights and, still, the best of the qualities. Don’t forget Pierre Mantoux hosiery is one of the finest brands of hosiery!
