Great article in WWD about the newest (well heard about it for some time, but now it's official) trendspark for fall: monochromatic looks from heard to toe.
"Come Fall, designers like Maurizio Pecoraro are advocating a monochrome vision that extends from head to stockinged toe. "My idea was to create a pure look," explains Pecoraro, who conjured his eighties-era memories of singly hued looks from Claude Montana. The cherry on top of this ultra-matched look is tights, particularly in hard-to-find hues like persimmon at Bottega Veneta, ocher at Nina Ricci, and burgundy at Albino. (Stow the matte black Wolfords for next season.) Knee boots created a similar effect at Akris and Halston, but hosiery's hegemony is undeniable. Even pattern-loving designers like Anna Sui and Paul Smith ordered up custom leg wear for complete coordination."
