Kiss Me Deadly launches exclusive 1950s stocking

For AW11, Kiss Me Deadly will be launching authentic 1950’s style fully fashioned stockings in brand new colourways.

The stockings, which will be dyed to match the brand’s key range for AW11, will be manufactured by Gio.

Gio, one of the few remaining manufacturers of pure nylon stockings, still creates its stockings on machines last used in the 40’s and 50’s, which weave a flat leg shape that is then sewn up the back, creating the iconic seamed stocking with a finishing loop at the top of the leg.

Available all year round in black, chocolate, bronze and natural, for this season there will be a short run of plum stockings, to match the Kiss Me Deadly Mimi range, and ballet pink, to match its vintage pink ranges.

Both styles will be available from Gio to Kiss Me Deadly retailers only.
