Skinwear and hosiery specialist Wolford has teamed up with shoe designer Amina Muaddi on a capsule collection “emphasising the beauty of the female body”.
The collection combines the precise fit and the skin-to-skin appeal of Wolford with Muaddi’s attention for craftsmanship, states the innerwear brand, and includes hosiery, leggings, bodysuits, jumpsuits, and socks, as well as ready-to-wear such as skin-tight dresses and bodysuits.
The result is a 17-piece collection of tights and leggings, alongside bodysuits, dresses, and a sleeveless cat-suit with built-in Amina Muaddi shoes.
The nine legwear garments have been made using premium materials includes latex, lace, viscose jersey, and eco-leather. Details include Swarovski crystal-embellished fishnet tights, split-lace tights featuring sheer and floral lace, latex stirrup leggings, and thong tights with an innovative smart slit between the toes allowing consumers to wear sheer tights with thong sandals.
These sit alongside ready-to-wear pieces consisting of two black bodysuits, made unique by the mandarin collars, and four slim-fit dresses revealing the body through super-short lengths, slits and cut-out details.
