Fashion Hosiery with Fading Colour Gradient

November 27, 2012 under Runway

I saw this online and I couldn’t resist but share with you!  I think this is an excellent concept for coloured tights to have a smooth colour gradient.

Personally I’ve seen tie-dyed tights before and I can’t stand anything that was coloured this way because it reminds me of some unfortunate laundry accidents rather than fashion.

However, this concept is much neater, especially if it is styled nicely with the outfit.  From my knowledge this product is from China and there is even a supplier on Alibaba website.

Can Europeans brands try to repeat this?  I’d be a big fan if I could find something of this sort from my favourite brands.

N@ked Bike Ride in Vancouver leads to traffic – doesn’t it defeat the purpose of having less emissions?

I found this picture of a guy dressed in stockings from the ride! At least he’s not without clothes.

No, no stockings here.  Most of the time no panties either!

N@ked Bike Ride is an international event that promotes a cleaner world – meaning less emissions from cars.

Today I saw it downtown and jumped up in disbelief.  Well, it’s real!  I had a good giggle after.

Let’s just say, I am not against it.  However, I have some concerns.  On my way back I was stuck in traffic that resulted because of this ride.  Cars are not allowed to pass this parade, so as a result there was a lot of congestion behind the riders.

Well, traffic brings the most idling.  Maybe the intent is green, but the logistics aren’t.

I am not anti-nudity, however in Canada we have people of different opinions.  I have 2 friends who say that they are unable to visit public swimming pools with their children because of nudity in the change rooms.  Perhaps they wouldn’t be pleased to take their child for an outing on Saturday and see a whole pack of naked people ride by.

What do you think of this?  I’d love to hear your opinion.
