As something of a hosiery enthusiast, I am predictably exited by the abundance of pretty pretty tights on the A/W catwalks. Trouble is, whilst I can admire the illustrated legs of Chanel, Chloe and Rodarte from afar with an adoring sigh, the chances of ever getting my chipped-nail-varnished paws on such items of beauty are rather low. After months of searching for tights of a more affordable nature (given the inevitable likelihood of laddering), and with only a feeble pair of lace tights to show as my spoils, I was delighted to come across Bebaroque.
The hosiery label, run by two fellow Scots, is dedicated entirely to illustrating legs in the most beautiful manner possible. An enchanting selection of embroidery, tassles and opulent ‘Beardsley’ style prints are all whispering permission to adorn my legs. Selling bewitching legs at affordable prices has already attracted deserved press from the likes of Grazia, Vogue.com and The Sunday Times. How exciting to stumble on a small business that makes utterly individual pieces – far more home-spun than the big designers and the perfect excuse to wear scandalously short hemlines with which to show them off…..
