We love when fashion multi tasks – looks good and is good for us- such as clothing with sunscreen built in. Now Donna Karan, one of our favorite designers and early contributor to our digital Fashion magazine, has come out with hosiery that does double duty. The Evolution hosiery collection is being called a day spa for legs. Here is what Donna wrote on her blog about it:
Introducing The Evolution Hosiery Collection
A DAY SPA FOR LEGS
As a designer, I’m consumed with legs. How to make them look longer, leaner and leggier. That’s why designing hosiery has always been an integral part of my design process. Beyond how legs look, I care about how they feel. Legs are a woman’s very foundation. They take you everywhere you go, and if you’re like me, you spend most of your day on your feet. Evolution, our newest hosiery collection, is the first-ever wellness hosiery.
Based on advanced knitting technology, Evolution pampers and invigorates legs with an all-over graduated compression for enhanced support and micro-massaging. So your legs feel energized all day. Most important, Evolution looks as sleek and chic as any of our hosiery. They feel good to the touch and create a smooth, sculpted silhouette under even the most body-conscious clothes. Evolution hosiery is so comfortable, you almost don’t want to take them off, even after a long day. They come in Seasonless Sheer and Seasonless Opaque, in four quintessential shades – Black, Off Black, DK Grey and Chocolate. Putting on a pair of Evolution is like checking your legs into a day spa – something indulgent you do for yourself and only you will know.
Donna is the Da Vinci if designing clothing that is both stylish and practical, so we for one are excited about the above. There is medical grade compression hosiery on the market which is proven to do what the above claims and more, but this hosiery is not exactly fashion forward. Kudos to Donna for marrying the two. Now if someone can just invent high heels that massage our soles when we walk so our feet feel better the longer we wear them….well, one can dream!
