Falke has re-launched their most popular design with softer yarns and a subtle satin shine for a more sophisticated luxurious look.  The Seidenglatt 15 Denier Gloss Tights feature a new comfortable waistband for optimum wear that doesn’t roll nor cut into the skin, sheer to waist brief and a reinforced toe for extra durability.  These tights are perfect for all day wear at a wedding, giving you a secure and comfortable fit around the waist for the wedding ceremony and reception.  By combining this comfort with a reinforced toe ensures that you can wear those high heels and party in style into the night with the bride and groom.

The luxurious, softer yarns in the re-vamped Seidenglatt leave these Falke sheer tights with a subtle shine gleam that flatters your legs and gives them a slimming effect.  These tights offer supreme quality and will give your wedding guest outfit a glamorous finish.   They are also available in 5 different shades of colour to suit your own skin tone and the occasion.  We also stock these in plus size XL and XXL with a supportive back panel so that they better suit your body shape.

Top 5 Hosiery Moments of 2018

It’s been quite a year in fashion and as we approach the end of 2018, we look back at the biggest hosiery moments of the year. So strap in as we look at the most talked about hosiery news of the last 12 months.

At 5, it’s Meghan Markle.

Transitioning from bare legged Californian babe, to demure princess in sheer pantyhose. There were a few awkward ensembles to start with including strange colour matching and dodgy satin finishes but we think she’s got it down now. Looking beautiful and bracing the British weather in opaque tights and berry hues, plus the Royal sheer tights obsession! Read more about Meghan’s look here.

 

At 4, it’s Wolford, the biggest name in hosiery, and their whacky rebrand!

Wolford is known as a classic brand, producing luxury legwear and bodywear, a leader in high-end fashion.

However, in recent weeks they have changed their brand imagery, launching their SS19 campaign with a high energy, zany vibe to keep fresh and relevant in the luxury market. Read all about the launch event here.

Wolford Logo (2)We love, love, love the new photography and with much more to come next year…watch this space!

At 3, it’s Pamela Mann’s Recycled Tights.

Fuelled by documentaries such as Blue Planet and Stacy Dooley investigates, a spotlight is being shone on our actions and attitude towards waste and the environmental impact of our day to day lives. Hosiery brand Pamela Mann have taken this on board and replaced two of it’s best selling styles with a more environmentally friendly version that uses 88% recycled yarns – even the packaging is made from recycled cardboard. Read the full story here.

At 2, it’s Serena Williams in Compression Tights.


The tennis superstar was back on centre court this summer and matched her pristine tennis whites with skin tone compression tights. Used to improve blood circulation and, in Serena’s case, help to prevent blood clots which the Grand Slam winner had problems with during the birth of her first child last September.  This peaked a lot of interest in compression hosiery and has been a busy season for our compression tights range at The Tight Spot! Check out more on this story here.

 

Finally, at number 1, it’s Queen RiRi en Vogue.

Gracing the cover of the prestigious September Issue, Rihanna wore Jonathan Aston Lace Tights. With all eyes on this edition as new Editor in Chief, Edward Enninful, put together his first issue. The Bajan beauty looked sensational in Prada dress and gloves, Savage X Fenty body and British Brand Jonathan Aston Tights. The striking look was completed with a floral crown and pencil thin eyebrows! A look we certainly won’t forget in a hurry.

british-v

So that’s it. Our top 5 – we can’t wait to see what 2019 has to bring in the hosiery world.

We’re already eyeing up an explosion in animal print hosiery, more sheer V opaque patterns and lots of socks, which are huge in street style at the moment…. stay tuned hosiery fans!

 

Thrilling New Vibe for Wolford!

 

There’s something different about Wolford

Their new season release not only brings us fantastic fashion styles and unusual designs but a completely fresh feel. Same quality, timeless pieces – new, high energy vibe.

To awaken this youthful, daring spirit, Wolford hosted a night of mystery and magic, which started in the sub-terrain of an impressive, Victorian building in East London. With no knowledge of what was to come, The Tight Spot’s Sophie and Sarah went down the rabbit hole and jumped headfirst into a new era of Wolford….

The invite instructed that you “Bring Your #TRUECHARACTER” and as we handed our coats to the purple clad bellboys in tails and hot pants, matched with Wolford Hold Ups of course, it was clear that a new side to Wolford’s Character was being unleashed.

 

As we ventured in further through a warren of corridors, each new space expressed an element of Wolford’s style, values and signature designs. This immersive theatre experience offered a celebration of Wolford’s most famous qualities and a thrilling insight into the new direction that the brand is taking.

From the sugary sweet circular knitting room – where a mermaid dressed in an elongated Fatal Dress perched atop a ball of yarn, handing out Strawberries and Cream Candyfloss. To a sterile laboratory where eerie scientists experimented on models and textiles to develop the next best hosiery invention, offering syringes filled with raspberry curd to anxious guests.

Moving through to the trend rooms, such as “Feeding The Animals Is Prohibited” where models dressed in animal prints, hides and feathers scampered and swung across the misty, rainforest floor so those passing through felt to be imposing on a tribe of hosiery clad creatures. A possible sneak peak at AW19? Who knows!

The fishnet room featured a sinister take on Strictly, where a powerful performance of tango meets acrobatics was performed inside a web of net. Onwards to the Sheer/Opaque room where panels of sheer and opaque materials obscured a striking drag queen transforming from a tracksuit wearing man, to a full blown glamour puss – who joined us on the dance floor later in the evening.

Wolford, like many brands have been focusing on their environmental impact and product sustainability. In the eco room, allotment owners tended to their crops and plants in Wolford’s Cradle to Cradle leggings, which are 100% biodegradable. Top tip for any dinner party hosts –nibbles here consisted of whole, pickled miniature vegetables in a soil bed of hummus and arancini balls on stalks, so you could literally pick your own food.

A neon pink room featured a hot and steamy pool party with sliders and lobster rolls sizzling on the barbeque where party guests wore Wolford SS19 swimwear. Visitors were invited to take a dip in the glitter pool – which, after a few Long Flint craft cocktails, we of course did!

 

As we wondered, wide eyed around the dark, UV lit show – alongside influencers, buyers, Wolford staff and packs of models striking group poses, the buzz and excitement for the future of this classic brand was palpable.  

The first look of Wolford’s SS19 campaign certainly confirms this with electric, tongue in cheek imagery that speaks to those who want more than a great product from this luxury brand.

We can’t wait to see more from this new side of Wolford. Watch this space.
