The onset of warmer weather means it’s time for the celebratory, and long-awaited, purging of legwear and hosiery. I know you’re probably slathering on the sunless tanner in hopes of having bronzed gams in time for the hot weather, but I just can’t resist sharing some news about legwear – and glittery ones at that!
Rebecca Taylor has reportedly designed a capsule collection of Swarovski encrusted tights, which were shown in her fall/winter 2010 runway collection. The hosiery will feature over 2,800 Swarovski crystals on each pair, and will come in autumnal shades like stormy lilac, olive and midnight.
“Rebecca’s obsessive eye to detail and love of all things sparkle have inspired her to create an opulent legwear collection that offers urban femininity with a luxe quality,” brand chief executive officer Beth Bugdaycay told WWD. “The tights for fall 2010 embody the modern, downtown-cool aesthetic of our collection and the Rebecca Taylor girl.”
Feel like these crystal adorned tights are perfect for you? Well, these glam socks don’t come cheaply; they’ll run you about $250 a pop!
The legwear will become available in July at Rebecca Taylor boutiques and online. Oh, and you better call ahead because there is already a waiting list!
