INSPIRATION SS 15: The modern lightness of summer

  • Wolford presents modernism in a variety of ways – in structure, shape and colour

Modern, light styles, clear-cut shapes and appealing material mixes, with a touch of futurism from the sixties: this is the new Wolford Summer 15 collection. Fresh, loud colour combinations with ombré effects or colour-block designs resemble the intensity of painter Mark Rothko’s works; in addition, calmer white, nude and pastel tones create subtly elegant summer statements. Across the range, models stand out due to their versatility, whereby styles from the Ready-to-wear and Lingerie ranges can be perfectly combined, whilst the Legwear range is put in the spotlight.

In summer 2015, Wolford Legwear will be celebrating all things arty, whether it’s vibrant colour combinations and prints with an ombré effect, a wide array of summer shades that flatter the nude tones on the legs with net tights, or subtle designs featuring opaque or transparent patterns: you’ll want to show off your legs at every available opportunity.

Leather-look leggings or styles adorned with metal studs are sure to turn heads, no matter whether you’re looking for classic elegance or evening glamour. On miniskirts and dresses, the striking designs and graphic patterns look great with stylish ankle boots or lace-effect footwear which will really make your legs the centre of attention. Besides high-impact net-effect tights, which look great in classic black but also summery white or nude tones, fashionably casual net ankle socks in bright colours are this season’s absolute must-have item.

For the ultimate ‘wow’ effect that sets off any outfit, choose items featuring genuine SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS – either visibly in an ankle-length version or concealed from view as stay-ups. Furthermore, matching items are available in the Ready-to-wear and Lingerie ranges.

59833 - Lia Cardigan - CMYK - 1350x1800A modern lightness in shape, material mixes and summery shades
A modern, light style dominates in the Ready-to-wear styles, as reflected in the clear-cut shapes, appealing material mixes and summery shades – ranging from spring pastels to eye-popping block colours. In addition, the items feature exceptional versatility, which makes them ideal for combining with lingerie styles, as well as setting off legwear to its best advantage. The collection is inspired by the futuristic look of the 1960s, particularly with their boxy designs, bold colour combinations in ombré effects and specific details such as white zips.

The perfect balance between sensuality and elegance: this sums up plenty of styles expertly walk the line between translucent and opaque elements, as well as the rich and effective contrasts between matt and glossy effects. With the fashionable reinterpretation of countless best-sellers from the Essentials collection, a whole new range of styles is opened up for a surprising range of looks, featuring slimline cuts with flowing silhouettes ranging from minimalist and elegant to glamorous and seductive.

With beautifully feminine necklines, casual cuts and wrap-around looks, as well as exquisite materials that gently cocoon the wearer, each item in the versatile, harmonious collection complements the others and inspire you to get creative.

59855 - Rebelle Top - CMYK - 1350x1800Ultimate minimalist modernism in lingerie
Wolford lingerie is set to entice with three fashionable lines which are the ultimate in a modern minimalist design and are perfect for combining with items from the Essentials collection.

Soft on the skin with a bold design – this is the maxim of the “Clair” series: softly woven lace in large floral patterns is combined with either delicate, slightly shaping tulle or wonderfully soft viscose. The result is a sensuous modern look that can be either worn as underwear or as a top, string body or shirt, as well as in combination with coordinating ready-to-wear styles.

The “Rebelle” series, on the other hand, promises a modern, seductive and provocative style, where the combination of a fine net blend and premium, slightly shimmering material draw the eye. Light as a feather on the skin, smooth to the touch and slightly shaping as both a body or slip, items in the “Rebelle” series are the perfect accompaniment to the summer, and are also perfect for wearing with all items in the “Sheer Touch” Essentials range.

Pink SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS lend the bandeau bra and string from the current “Silk Crystal” set a touch of glamour, a look which is further enhanced by the delicately shimmering material in black. Both these classics from the Sheer Touch range are the perfect accessory.

On-trend accessories: versatile styling without limits
With a refreshing palette of summery reds and maritime blues, wraps and scarves from our trend accessories range not only complement the collection with style but are also sure to boost your mood. The romantic whimsy of the pastel shades, on the other hand, looks fantastic with light summer shades, adorned with ornamental patterns.

The accessories featuring either SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS or silvery metal studs add a fashionable shimmer. Choose between classic gloves, exclusive collars or high-quality bracelets, depending on the occasion.

Our range of belts also adds a special something to your summer wardrobe. Our accessories are modern and versatile, enabling your imagination to run free when it comes to creating a new outfit – no matter whether you opt for an elegant airbrushed look, eye-popping block colours, contrasts between matt and gloss or details such as zips, patent inserts or leather appliqué.
