On Saturday afternoon I made my way to Le Bon Marché in order to buy comfortable light and dark anthrazite wool tights. I had no great expections, no need for hip la hip Prada or Miu Miu tights, only tights which are pliant, comfortable and warm. I tried some of the labels offered, including Le Bourget, Isabel Marant and Falke but finally went on to the good old Wolfords to figure out that they appeared to be most comfortable. Unluckily any suitable colour in any justifiable material (I refuse to buy synthetic materials) at any common size was sold out. What happened? I went back to Falke & Co. studying their racks carefully - same phenomenon
Did every female person in this city decide to shop tights this week-end? So what now? The gentle sales lady smiled and proposed to order some Wolford merino tights in antrazite to pick up next week.
Fall/Winter 2007 seems to be the season of tights. When I left the most peaceful place in Paris I finally noticed tights everywhere on the street: coloured tights, textured tights, patterned tights wool tights, stockings and leg warmers.
