Featuring LYCRA® fibre, the collections launch for Autumn/Winter 2015 and promise to bring statement fashion hosiery combining influences from both designers’ previous collections. Zandra’s range features bold colours, peacock feathers, wiggles and chains and Celia’s collection combines tights and socks in paisley prints, floral motifs and kitsch bohemian style.
When asked about LYCRA® fibre Zandra said: “It’s the usefulness and fabulous qualities of LYCRA® fibre that now rules our lives. Figure-hugging undergarments like shapewear and invisible pants that leave no VPL being obvious examples. What would we do without them! I am thrilled to do this collection of tights and socks, using intricate laces and weaves, utilizing my very own special imagery. Fashion is not fashion without legs!”
The collections will be available at all major Jonathan Aston stockists such as John Lewis, ASOS and House of Fraser.
