Though Wolford have always been my go-to brand for fabulous legwear (“legcessories”) and lingerie, it has taken me quite some time to warm up to their ready-to-wear collection. Thankfully, they have combined glamorous layering with a 1980s ‘couture’ silhouette for Spring/Summer 2013 and I have fallen head over heels.
Last week I headed over to their showroom to preview the collection and couldn’t help but whip out the old iPad to snap it in all its glory. Wolford have taken inspiration from the likes of Greta Garbo, trompe l’œil paint splash effects, and renowned fashion illustrator Rene Gruau to divide the collection into three colourful themes – ‘Holiday Resort’, ‘Spring’ and ‘Summer’ – which feature major embellishments and figure-flattering technicality. An incredibly sexy and elegant accomplishment for the brand.
