White collant are the new SS trend

The transition from no-fashion to fashion

By acrimonia

One of the trends of SS19 are just white collant. Wearable, it seems, in any situation and with, almost, all outfits. Many brands at the SS Collection presentations have decreed white socks as one of the season's must-haves. While for the more street stylists it was clear to bring back an unmissable accessory for style lovers, even the high fashion brands haven’t been delayed, proposing on the runways knee-highs and totally embroidered white milk tights. No one has been excluded from Milan to Paris Fashion Week; that of the white stocking is a trend that has involved anyone. Tights and knee-highs of all kinds: pantyhose embroidered in spring colors, tights and knee-highs with embroidered and printed logos, or even, pantyhose entirely in lace, always and exclusively in white. A shade not particularly easy to manage and match; but that the Italian designers, and not, have been able to resubmit with great class. The new Gucci and Valentino woman comes with enveloping and totally embroidered tights. In the case of Gucci, Alessandro Michele presented some knee-highs with the golden logo of the brand, giving a romantic look to unusual accessories to fashion runways. gucciwhitecollant_acrimoniamagazine Gucci valentinowhitecollant_acrimoniamagazine2 Valentino No less Pier Paolo Piccioli with Valentino has decided to combine his sumptuous and wonderful clothes, white collant with floral embroidery in shades of pink, but also tights entirely of lace.  A touch of bon ton to already magnificent looks. Miuccia Prada's woman, also, combines optical white medium highs collant with short skirts, light and fluttering with super-high satin sandals. pradawhitecollant_acrimoniamagazine1 Prada pradawhitecollant_acrimoniamagazine2 Prada From the latest presentation of the collections it seems, therefore, that both the pantyhose and the knee-highs are no longer conceived as that horrid accessory to hide or not to use, rather it’s the element that can make the difference. Gucci, Valentino and Prada, however, aren’t the firsts. In fact, eleven years ago, great designers and minds like Gianfranco Ferrè and John Galliano in their Fall Ready to Wear (2008) had used white tights as their must-have accessories for their looks. In this case, as then Chanel ten years later with the winter collection 2017, were proposed optic white tights, with a simple taste. Not an embroidery or a graphic, but the simple and pure white covering. chanelwhitecollant_acrimoniamagazine4 Chanel chanelwhitecollant_acrimoniamagazine2 Chanel Chanel Almost as if this accessory made the difference without becoming the protagonist. From 2008 onwards, but even before look carefully, many designers like Giambattista Valli, Jean Paul Gautier, Rocco Efisio Marras with I'M Isola Marras, MM6 Maison Margiela and so on, will propose many looks with white ribbed knee-highs, white tights, very simple and pure.

Here are logos, graphics and embroidery. Simplicity, today, is also exaggerating and making sure that a simple accessory is no longer simple. Everything, even the white sock, has to make the difference. So, the tights and the white knee-highs have always been among us and we have never noticed it. These accessories will become, like a few years ago, the passe-partout for SS and for future seasons. From today who will ever looking at you with a judging face for your white stocking, you will fiercely answer that if fashion says that you can do it, you do it.
