With glittering gold, beading and tassels gracing the Spring 2012 runways, one thing is clear: designers everywhere are preparing for the Great Gatsby.
Gucci unveiled its 2012 Spring/Summer Collection featuring a contemporary twist on the roaring 20s with a mix of modern rock-chic and vintage glamour.
Gucci Creative Director, Frida Giannini, was inspired by the opulence and glamour of the “era of hedonism”, and we simply love the luxury and elegance of the designs!
FireHosiery adores the 1920s era, as this was the time when elaborate pantyhose and stockings with geometric designs, fishnets and back seam tights reached the height of fashion. So, naturally, these types of hosiery work beautifully with the latest runway interpretations of the roaring 20’s trend.
With our admiration of the age of opulence, we’ve put together a few hot hosiery suggestions below that definitely scream “la more” for the 1920’s!

…And of course no flapper dress could possibly be complete without a pair of our classic Vintage Seam tights:
