The return of the femme fatale

The return of the femme fatale
The femme fatale image made a triumphant return the catwalk in Milan last week. According to the Independent, audiences could be forgiven for burning their entire wardrobe and starting their couture collection again from scratch after seeing Stefano Pilati's collection for Yves Saint Laurent.

The publication notes that the "discretely-elegant, beautifully-proportioned and effortlessly-wearable collection," included black opaque tights covered by tailored dresses, coats and trouser suits.

Any woman of style would love to wear them, the publication explains, noting the use of talon-heeled black leather platform-soled boots and shoes, with matt-black lips and eighties style bobs to complete the noir look.

The Commes des Garcons designer Rei Kawakubo also used black opaque hosiery in her collection, which also featured red polka-dot dresses and tailored shorts.

Meanwhile, regional news source stuff.co.nz recently advised fashionistas to adopt grey opaque legwear this season as a more feminine take on the "wardrobe staple" of black tights.
