We can’t deny how amazed with are with the new hosiery trends for Autumn Winter 2016, as you must have noticed after our most recent posts about fashion trends and hosiery collections. However, there’s something else you need to know about the new AW16 collections: its technological advances!
Do you remember our post about the under-toe seams and other hosiery innovations? Well, there’s more you need to know. These are the four hosiery innovations you can’t miss this season.
A pair of tights without a waistband? Yes, it’s happening!
Had you ever imagine you could own a pair of sheer tights without a waistband? Cecilia de Rafael has made it possible! The new Cecilia de Rafael Eterno 15 Tights are more than a regular pair of glossy sheer tights. They are an extremely comfortable pair of glossy tights! More features? Sandal toe, ladder resist and cotton gusset. Who can resist to great hosiery innovations like these!
Wolford Comfort Cut 40 Tights: The Ultimate Comfort
Talking about hosiery innovations, this is one of the latest innovations in the fashion world: A customisable waistband!
The waist size of the Wolford Comfort Cut tights is decided by the wearer, who can adjust it by making up to four cuts in the waistband.
What are the benefits of customisable waistbands in hosiery? Many! Tall people often have to wear X Large sizes to fit their long legs. What if you are tall but slender? In this case, you may find the waistband in your tights is too big for you. On the opposite, if you are short and you have a round shape, you will go for wider waistbands. Forget about baggy hosiery: A few cuts here and there and you’ll have your customised tights ready to rock! Everyone who tries them loves them. That can’t be a coincidence!
Couture Ultimates: No Seams Plus No Ladders!
Countdown to the arrival of the new Couture Ultimates range! Are you as excited as we are? In a few days, you’ll be able to judge by yourself. Until then, trust our word when we say this is one of the biggest hosiery innovations in years and it’s a Made-in-Britain innovation! The Couture Ultimates tights are completely seamless, do not ladder (ladder proof, rather than ladder resistant), have a leg smoothing effect and are truly beautiful. These in the picture above are The Diana, one of the seven patterned tights included in their AW16 collection.
The Next Big Thing in Opaques: Nanofabrics
Soft opaque tights are generally made of microfibre, but now Oroblu and Le Bourget have introduced nanofibres, instead of microfibres. Nanofibre yarn creates incredibly soft-touch and silky-effect textiles. Le Bourget Heritage Luxe 60 Denier Tights are the first nanofibre opaque tights we stock, although Oroblu is catching up Le Bourget with new nanofibre sheer tights: Oroblu Divine Tights, as below. The new range of Oroblu
will be available very soon at UK Tights is now available at UK Tights!
