Haute Couture AW17 Report: Armani Privé does Wolford-like fashion tights


Haute Couture stands for ‘High fashion’. Nothing can compare to the unique elegance and luxury of Haute Couture designs. And what’s more elegant than a pair of black sheer tights? Armani Privé collection was as spectacular as you can imagine.  Their black tights with cut-out details made us think of a style we have seen in Wolford fashion collection this year. We think we’ll definitely see more of this soon.

Both Armani Privé and Jean Paul Gaultier chose black matt tights to finish their outfits. Although fishnets, polka dots and other patterned tights have walked their way into fashion in the last seasons, some patterns can steal the attention from some designs. Maybe that’s the reason why both houses went for the minimalist look of black hosiery. We love the perfect combination of textures of Jean Paul Gaultier tights, satin skirt, embellished top and velvet coat.

We have also noticed the sandals and sheer tights look. Yes, the sandals-and-tights and sandals-and-socks looks are here to stay!

Along with pastel tones, white tights are highly demanded by fashion stylist for their magazine editorials and styles. However, white tights are one of those styles people either love or hate.
