I really was not quite sure what to expect when the Emilio Cavallini invite landed in my inbox- my first thought was how in the world are they going to showcase a legwear collection during fashion week? Well the answer to that question came in a delightful presentation that included a gorgeous legwear collection.
The presentation included a short film entitled Risqué Business, which basically features a woman on holiday sampling pieces ranging from lace to bold florals to tattoo motifs. Comparisons to Wolford are inevitable with the bold stripes, creative lace, and gorgeous geometric patterns of the legwear.
The range strives to move hosiery beyond the realm of traditional accessory to a garment unto itself. Inspired by the 1950’s pin-up model Bettie Page Emilio indicated “Bettie Page was the ultimate femme fatale enticing the fantasies of men… and women at a time when nice girls wouldn’t dare look like that” .The collection is sexy, chic and a must for any woman who is eager to make a sexy statement.
