From ajour to appliqué, from stitching to seams, from lines to lace: the 2015/16 autumn/winter legwear range is extremely diverse

The Wolford legwear collection for autumn and winter 2015/16 is once again impressing people with its variety. Headed by the three major collection topics “Sensitivity”, “Vitality” and “Elegance” play with the new and the familiar: They feature subtle accents with polka dots, net, lace designs and delicate embellishments with Swarovski Elements. The textured patterns feature exciting contrasts between opaque and sheer material – either subtly with fine stripes or a net look, or more strikingly with blocks of opaque fabric. Black is once again an essential colour: Items with black shimmering appliqués in the form of a strap design or as a seam along the back of the leg, in a boot or over-the-knee effect, will ensure that all eyes are on you. Many styles are now not only available for tights but also as socks, knee-highs or stay-ups.
Knitted legwarmers in a premium Merino fabric featuring a smooth or ribbed knit are new to the collection and can be worn pulled up or slouched – a must-have this season. Hosiery made from natural fibres, featuring a fresh, mottled striped design which is amongst this season’s trendsetters, rounds off the collection.

Sensitivity: subtly sensuous designs with effective extra features
Sensuous legwear that is subtle with a certain stylish finishing touch: Introducing the styles in the Sensitivity 2015/16 autumn/winter legwear collection .

The Neon 40 Tights are new and are the ideal tights for the glamour puss in you. Shimmering and semi-sheer, they draw all eyes to your legs and look particularly stylish and festive. This is achieved thanks to their subtle concealer effect, which leaves the skin looking smooth, creating the perfect legs. And they perform well when it comes to comfort, too: The Neon 40 Tights also feature a kind-to-skin cotton gusset, soft sewn-on waistband and barely-there toe reinforcement (Shadow Toe).

Tights or stay-ups? With Daphne Tights, you can have both! The classically elegant tights a matt look feature exciting, knitted-in stay-ups, straps and garter belt. A wide suspender strap look with fine, polka-dot net is integrated on the thigh and features a small bow on the front. The soft knitted waistband provides extra comfort.
Our Emily Tights are particularly luxurious: At the manufacturing facilities in Austria, over 700 half-beads are applied by hand to the sheer tights in a matt look. The beading runs in a zigzag at stay-up height. A wide waistband makes the tights less prone to laddering when dressing and undressing. The soft knitted waistband provides extra comfort.

Daria Tights are sheer tights in an elegant net tulle look with a classic polka-dot pattern. The wide waistband makes the tights less prone to laddering and the soft knit provides comfort. With its subtle pattern, it gives elegant outfits a delicate, feminine touch. This pattern is also available as the Daria Knee-Highs and Daria Socks.

Over 700 glittering Swarovski Elements are applied by hand at the Austrian Wolford manufacturing facilities and make the sheer, matt Cara Tights something really special. They encircle the leg all the way up to the knee. A wide waistband makes the rights more robust when dressing and undressing and its soft knit feels comfortable against the skin.

Lots of dandelion clocks adorn the light, feminine Lilie Tights, which are made from real lace. The real seam on the back of the leg of these matt tights underline the high-quality look that is perfect for making a splash with your evening wardrobe. The pattern is also reflected on the Lilie Stay-Ups, which feature a narrow satin ribbon at the top, and Lilie Socks. All legwear models featuring the Lilie design can be combined perfectly with matching items from the lingerie range.

The classic Amara Tights featuring a decorative checked pattern add discreet colour highlights to your legs. Their two-tone mini check in an opaque fabric with a slight pearlescent shimmer makes them a fantastic all-rounder.

Milla Tights create the illusion of fabulously long legs: The vertical, fine stripes on these opaque tights with a slight pearlescent shimmer look great with almost any item of clothing and will provide added elegance for any outfit.

Sparkling with life: the “Vitality” range
Fresh, young, sporty: the sheer, matt Louie Tights present this season’s stripe trend with their narrow horizontal lines, whilst the seam up the back of the legs provides a touch of femininity. The tights have a comfortable, soft knitted waistband and are a match for both monochrome outfits and stylish pattern mixes.
One version of the Louie Tights reflects the popular knee-high trend: the upper section is matt with fine, opaque horizontal stripes, whilst the lower section is opaque. The seam up the back of the legs adds a touch of femininity. The effect is stylish, youthful and unusual, perfect with a miniskirt and court shoes or ankle boots.

Stripes Tights – the name says it all: Long, widely spaced pinstripes form the attractive eye-catcher of these particularly soft opaque tights in a matt look. The velvety vertical stripes create a three-dimensional visual effect and the Stripes pattern can also be found in the Stripes Knee-Highs and Stripes Socks. This unusual style adds a fashionable detail to business clothing and classic ladieswear.

Opposites united: the Adelia Tights are winter ajour tights in a matt look, which reveal the skin yet still keep you warm thanks to their especially soft material. The fine open-knit design spirals up the leg. For optimal comfort there is a smooth-knit sole, heel and toe and a comfortable, soft knitted waistband. The feminine ajour pattern is also featured in the Adelia Knee-Highs and Adelia Socks.

The Laisa Tights are matt, opaque tights with a zigzag pattern up to stay-up height, running into a seam at the back of the legs.

With a lattice design instead of net, modern rather than classic, the Grid Tights are a new interpretation of net tights. The seamless panty section ensures optimal comfort without showing under close-fitting garments. This eye-catching design is available as a Grid Stay-Up, Grid Knee-High and Grid Socks.

The Aileen Tights feature a classically modern matt checked design, made from a very soft material. They are highly versatile, but look especially fantastic with classic pencil skirts and feminine dresses.
The check pattern also adorns the Aileen Knee-Highs and Aileen Socks.

The Blair Tights feature a large-scale lattice design – surely one of the most unusual looks of the season. The fine lattice in the toe area provides optimum comfort, whilst the seamless panty section ensures that they won’t show under close-fitting clothing. Whether worn for contrast or trendy coordination, the Blair Tights are definitely eye-catching.

Abigail Tights and Abigail Stay-Ups are sheer at the front and opaque at the back. This extravagant style is especially effective when paired with short skirts and dresses that reveal the legs.

The interplay between the sheer and opaque sections will make the Alexia Tights the perfect highlight for your outfit. Their wide, opaque horizontal stripes create a sock effect, whilst one narrow and one wide stripe on the thigh create the illusion of a stay-up, turning even simple outfits into a fashion statement.

Sporty and extravagant: the Claudia Tights. The opaque tights with translucent stripe on the side, which highlights the length of the leg beautifully, creates a fresh, casual and dynamic look for the wearer. These tights cannot be surpassed when it comes to versatility: they look just as great with pumps and a pencil skirt as with a more casual look, such as a knitted dress with trainers.

Exciting and different: The Darleene Overknee Tights are sheer tights with an opaque over-the-knee effect and black, shimmering sequins at over-knee height, creating an exciting upgrade for any outfit.
The Darleene Booty Tights have got the wow factor, with an opaque design featuring black, shimmering sequins in an exciting boot effect. They are made from soft Velvet de Luxe 66 material and finished with an extra-soft knitted waistband, making them comfortable to wear.
The Darleene Tights are the modern interpretation of the feminine back seam: shimmering black sequins on the extremely soft velvety material form a fresh interpretation of the classic leg seam.

Is it an illusion? That’s the riddle presented by the Carrie Tights: these classic, opaque black tights reveal a sheer back seam embellished with metallic strips and half beads.

Alegra Legwarmers in premium Merino wool are going to become a wardrobe staple this winter. These wonderfully cosy legwarmers are ideal for a whole range of on-trend looks. Smooth-knitted with a ribbed section at the top and bottom, they can be worn slouched and look great over trousers or with skirts.
Alegra Legwarmers are available in a rib-knit version for a particularly casual look.

The epitome of elegance
Integrating the “Elegance” theme into legwear for autumn/winter 2015/16 is easy for Wolford because luxury for the legs is nothing less than the brand’s essence and origin.

Elegance with stripes: the Sophia Tights are fashionably opaque tights with two-tone, narrow vertical stripes creating a lengthening effect on the legs. The soft material with a high cotton content and the comfortable, soft knitted waistband make them especially kind to the skin and comfortable to wear. Whether you wear them as tights or as Sophia Knee-Highs – both models make stylish details to a business suit or long skirt.

Sandrine Tights are this season’s trendsetter: their fine horizontal, two-tone, opaque look stripe design is an unusual style that is still very versatile: whether with court shoes and a pencil skirt, a short dress with boots or as part of a trendy outfit with hot pants, they’ll give any look an individual touch. Their comfortable, soft knitted waistband makes them the ideal companion for the day.

The Alin Tights boast a mesh pattern design: these extremely soft and yet matt look opaque tights with a subtle mesh pattern design are interwoven with shimmering threads.

Warming yet still sheer: the winter ajour Dajana Tights with a fine mesh pattern design are extremely soft and let the skin show through. For optimal comfort there is a smooth sole, heel and toe and a comfortable, soft knitted waistband – a chic and sensual companion.

Less is more with the Tiara Tights: Like a sparkling clasp the luxurious band made from pearls and Swarovski Elements is placed on these opaque matt tights around the ankle. These opaque, soft tights are made from skin caressing Velvet de Luxe 66. The 120 beads and crystals have been applied by hand in Austria.

A perfect match with the classic and feminine Clair styles from the lingerie collection, the Clair Tights are feminine net tights with a large floral design from the waist to the toes. For optimal comfort there is a seamless panty section, that remains invisible even under tight dresses.
