Wolford celebrates vitality: the “Vitality” collection brings dynamic styles with striking designs for autumn/winter 2015/16

Wolford focuses on vitality: The Austrian label presents numerous styles that exude energy and vigour for the 2015/16 autumn/winter collection. The name of the collection, “Vitality”, is characterised by striking, modern designs which are suitable for both outerwear and underwear, with stripes and an exciting contrast between transparent and opaque elements. Rich blue, grey and green shades form the colour palette. They not only define the trend items but are also reflected in legwear and bodywear models from the Wolford Essentials collection, which is available year-round.

Louie Tights

Louie Tights

Sparkling with vivacity: “Vitality” styles in legwear
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 dynamic zigzag pattern up to stay-up height, running into a seam at the back of the legs. A wide waistband makes them more robust when dressing and undressing.

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 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.

Sheer at the front, opaque at the back: the Abigail Tights and Abigail Stay-Ups. 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 a boot effect. They are made from soft Velvet de Luxe 66 material and finished with a 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 embellishd with metallic strips and half beads.

Various legwear items from the Essentials collection feature the “Vitality” colours and are available in navy, raven and other shades, such as the Sheer 15 Tights, the Neon 40 Tights, Velvet de Luxe 66 Tights or the Pure 50 Tights.

Dynamic garments for underwear and outerwear: lingerie and bodywear
Fine translucent and opaque stripes carry the “Vitality” theme through into the lingerie models. Feminine and casual are not opposites; instead, they can form a fantastic combination. If you’re looking for light comfort too, then look no further – these items will become everyday staples in your wardrobe.
The Louie range is composed of fine examples of feminine and dynamic underwear and can be combined with all items from the Sheer Touch range: the softly lined Louie Triangle BH features a casual look which is characterised by light comfort. The fine striped design comes into its own on the elegant Sheer Touch material. The Louie Triangle BH can be worn in three ways: strapless, with the straps crossed at the back or as a halter-neck.
The Louie String Panty in a dynamic striped design with Sheer Touch material is presented in a classic form, as are the Louie Tanga and Louie Panty.
For both underwear and outerwear we present the Louie Top, a tank top featuring a casual striped look with translucent effects and ribbon on the neckline and armholes, and the Louie Pullover, in an elegant striped design with three-quarter sleeves and a boat neckline with ribbon. This light jumper displays a sophisticated interplay of translucent and opaque sections in an ingenious way and thanks to the wide neckline it pairs perfectly with tops and bras underneath to create pretty combinations.

One version of the Louie Pullover comes with a casual stand-up collar and slightly overlong sleeves. It offers countless styling options, which always look feminine and casual.

The Pagu Pullover is a straight-cut, loose cropped jumper with stylish wide cuffs. Thanks to the seamless knitting technique and extra-soft Wolford material, it combines a high level of comfort with a modern, casual look and is a trendy partner for skirts, classic trousers or jeans.

The Darleene Pullover is all about glamour: this soft jumper is embellished with shimmering black sequins around a trendy boat neckline. The Darleene Pullover goes perfectly with all feminine outfits, creating a highlight for soirées and special occasions.

Many bodywear styles from the Essentials collection, which is available all year round, put the rich, earthy “Vitality” colours in centre stage for autumn/winter 2015/16. This includes the models from the Pure range, available in fir, raven and navy shades, and the Lisbon String Body (fir), the Colorado Body (oak), the Cordoda Pullover (oak, navy) or the Berlin Body (oak).

New in earthy “Vitality” tones: the Fatal Dress, a classic and established part of the Essentials collection, is available in autumn/winter 2015/16 in oak, raven and navy, the rich tones of the “Vitality” colour palette. The seamless tube made from exclusive, soft velvet offers numerous wearing options: as a skirt, top or dress for a simple summer look or sophisticated and paired with matt tights.

New to the Essentials collection is the Luxe Pullover with its wide neckline, available in the colours oak, raven and navy. Made from soft micromodal in a seamless knit technique it combines feminine shimmer with a wonderfully soft feeling on the skin. Whether worn on its own or under dresses and casual knitwear the Luxe Pullover boasts a minimalist design and unbeatable comfort.

Versatile, dynamic and made from simple materials: clothing with a touch of “Vitality“
This season, many models from our clothing range are making a big impact: dresses, skirts and jumpers look stunning in the sober, rich natural shades of oak, raven, navy and black in combination with high-quality materials. The uncomplicated cuts ensure that there are no compromises when it comes to comfort.

The short, no-frills Molly Dress made from comfortable, softly draped viscose jersey has an especially comfortable, loose fit and is highly versatile. With its shorter cut, it puts any tights on centre stage and makes a complete look with the Holly Leggings made from the same material.

The Pagu Dress is a casually cut minidress made from a very soft material with stylish wide cuffs and a stand-up collar. It’s mid-thigh length and is therefore highly versatile: as a minidress in a sporty look over skinny trousers or a comfortable long jumper with leggings.

The Ophelia Top offers top-quality Wolford design. This long, sleeveless top with a stand-up collar is made from a comfortable, soft viscose ribbed knit. Worn on its own or with a translucent top underneath, with leggings or a slimline skirt, this top will create a slender silhouette.
The Ophelia Skirt is a classic pencil skirt in a ribbed viscose knit and feminine look that falls to just below the knees. The skirt can be combined with a range of garments: it works just as well with an oversized jumper as a slim-fit top and will make legs look slinky and slender.
The Ophelia Dress is a minidress made from a light viscose yarn in a minimalist design with modern elegance. The integrated stand-up collar and slightly overlong sleeves make it look feminine and distinguished, and it’s also highly versatile: it can be worn as a dress or as a long jumper with skinny trousers or a skirt underneath.

The Alegra Top is a short, loose top featuring an ingenious interplay between smooth and ribbed knits in a soft Merino material. It’s a wonderfully versatile combination item for wintery layered looks thanks to the integrated collar and overcut shoulders.
The Alegra Pullover made from soft Merino material toys with smooth and ribbed sections. The light jumper with a slimline silhouette has an integrated stand-up collar and overcut shoulders. With the slightly overlong sleeves and the wide waistband, it’s an attractive companion for any occasion.
One version of the Alegra Pullover has a looser fit: the oversized long-length jumper made from soft Merino wool with an elaborate design of smooth and ribbed sections is fantastically comfortable. It has slightly overlong sleeves, overcut shoulders and a generous shawl collar. It pairs perfectly with opaque winter tights, leggings and slim-fit trousers.
The Alegra cardigan is a loose, comfortable long cardigan made from soft Merino wool, featuring a stylish interplay of smooth and ribbed sections. The special thing about this item is the wide panel with a covered button strip, whilst overcut shoulders and slightly overlong sleeves add a touch of nonchalance. The Alegra Cardigan goes perfectly with pencil skirts, slim-fit trousers and leggings and comes into its own when paired with a lace or translucent top.

The Binx Vest is a warm gilet made from soft Merino wool with patch pockets and can be worn in two different ways. The trendy, chunky knit doesn’t just look good, it also brings cosy warmth to cold, wintry days. The Binx Vest is an ideal partner for dresses, leggings, slim-fit trousers and skirts.

The Fatal Darleene Dress is an especially glamorous version of the classic Fatal Dress. Featuring a hem embellished with shimmering black sequins, it can be worn in three ways: as a dress with a sparkling neckline or as a skirt with a glittering waistband or hem. The soft velvet material, made using a seamless knitting technique, brings together an exciting look and fabulous comfort.

Accessories full of power and dynamism
The accessories from the “Vitality” theme are sometimes unconventional, sometimes glamourous, but always simple and versatile.

The Alegra Collar, a ribbed shawl collar made from soft Merino wool, is a feel-good accessory that’s a favourite beyond the cooler season too. Warm and still the height of fashion, it guarantees cosy warmth, not just for winter walks, but also on cool summer evenings.
The Alegra Plaid is a short, loose, poncho made from soft Merino wool and provides modern, casual styles for cold days. With the V-neck and fine ribbing on the cuffs, this cosy poncho is ideal for wintry layered looks, but is also a match for shirts, tops and long-sleeved tops.
Another version of the Alegra Plaid is a hooded poncho with side slits in a soft Merino material with stylish interplay of smooth and ribbed sections. It’s simply ideal for cold days over fine bodies and jumpers, and with leggings or pencil skirts. The Alegra Skirt is a great match for the Alegra Sleeves, the arm-warmers from the same series.
The Alegra sleeves are trendy sleeves made from soft Merino wool, featuring an effective interplay of smooth and ribbed sections. They look fantastic with the Alegra Plaid. A trendy look that can be combined with a range of outfits whilst providing luxurious warmth on cooler days.

The Darleene Collar combines vitality with sparkle: this sequin-adorned collar adds a touch of glamour to any outfit. It’s tied with satin ribbons, so the Darleene Collar adds a touch of elegance to any simple outfit. This is an especially stunning item to pair with off-the shoulder dresses and tops or with the Fatal Dress, and the Darleene Bracelet coordinates perfectly.
The Darleene Bracelet is a bracelet made from wonderfully soft velvet, embellished with shimmering sequins. It can instantly turn any basic outfit into a party piece and matches the Darleene Collar.

A touch of 1920s chic: the fingerless Adelia Sleeves with a spiralling, fine net pattern make any sleeveless outfit into an extravagant robe. The Adelia Sleeves look particularly effective when teamed with matching items from the legwear range

The Carina Belt is a wide belt with a stylish design made from soft nappa cowhide with decorative metal eyelets. It features a concealed thorn buckle. A minimalist design that emphasises your feminine side, this belt, this is perfect with trousers, skirts or dresses.

The Mago Belt is a nappa cowhide belt with a wrap-effect design, whose decorative metal eyelets are subtly suggestive of a bondage style. It is fastened with a concealed thorn buckle. One side of the belt is fastened on the right, the other on the left. It makes a style upgrade for any outfit.
