Hosiery "steals the show" in Paris
The catwalks of Paris have been showcasing outfits completed by heavily-patterned tights this week, it has been reported.

Vogue noted that designer Paolo Melim Anderssen dressed his models in busily-printed dresses matched with elegantly patterned hosiery, adding that such stylish legwear has "dominated" the autumn and winter looks.

Anna Sui used "baroque-swirled tights" to set off her outfits while Betsey Johnson daringly clad her clotheshorses' legs in large-weave fishnets, the style bible continued.

"It's not often hosiery steals the show but next season, adding some spice to your tights will be a cheap and simple way to update your look," Vogue stated.

During the recent Fashion Weeks in both London and New York, hosiery has been receiving considerable attention from the world's press as designers explore its potential to add a unique touch to their autumn collections.

According to the Times, one designer even created tights with chunks of glass "clamped" down the legs.
