ORNAMENTAL ELEGANCE  Direction File Download

As femininity oozes into the market in the intimate apparel sector it is only natural that hosiery should follow suit. Sheer and decorative is the name of the game with black becoming less dominant and used more as an accent in decorative applications, either allover or in placement form.

Elegant to the core, there is a sense of tradition and conservatism, but it isn’t prudish, it is seductively alluring in a subtle way. Sheer denier semi and full gloss hosiery features along with the increased interest in stockings and hold-ups with a decorative finish.
