Give It Some Leg

Click for larger images.

The wonderful Face Hunter posted this photograph recently of a delightfully pretty girl wearing some rather fabulous tights. At first glance, I'm sure many people would mistake them for full sleeve tatoos on both of her legs, however they are indeed tights, from the Scottish company Bebaroque. The company, founded July of last year, is run by the design duo of Mhairi McNicol and Chloe Patience, who use hand embroidery and printing to achieve the patterning of these unique tights. I decided to just post a few examples from their current collection. They might not be to everyone's taste, however I for one love them - funky, pretty and definitely unique!

On a side note does she remind anybody of Kit Pistol (cute as a button!) from Project Runway or is that just me?

  4. I really need to get my hands on a pair of these...

    There are similar things on Etsy, although they are only knee high socks and they don't look as cool.

  15. Being a tights fanatic (the only way to wear skirts in my year-round cold and foggy city), I'm mad at myself for never even considering tights with a print on them. It's genius!
    And thank you so much for the link!
