New York: We attended a preview for Philippe Matignon’s F/W 2012 hosiery and intimates collections last week. A division of the Golden Lady Company, the Italian heritage brand has only recently made its mark on the U.S. market, bringing with it decades of fashion innovation and perfected craftsmanship.
The label previewed its expansive legwear, lingerie, bodywear and shapewear collections for fall. In terms of luxury brands, Philippe Matignon’s legwear styles are among our favorites. Our longtime fashion secret, they hold up to the harshest of urban conditions, from trekking towards the Hudson River during New York Fashion Week to jumping from house party to party on the weekends.
Some of our favorite trends on display include subtle patterns on sheers and organic textures for trouser-weight socks.
The new intimates collection features a range of stretch silk charmeuse and delicate lace pieces in pretty pales and jewel tones. Again, styles are just classic enough but stand out in the little design details, like intricate pin-tucks, accents of brightly colored lace and oversized bows.
