i will get a pair of latex leggings one day, i know i will - i've been promised!
so in the meantime i keep an eye to see if they're still on the fashion bloggers radar and what they say about them.
apparently latex is taking over the world according to the queen of the posh and the broke blog. with an find of claudia schiffer in latex leggins in Russia's Vogue.
meanwhile at www.fashionising.com the metalic leggings, including latex, continues well into the fall / winter 07 lines. check their forums for more style spotting and comments.
the trend is starting to seep into other fashionistas now with Wendy Brandes becoming obsessed although there seems to be some confusion over if its the look of them and that something similiar will do or if its the latex itself. she does give a shout out to the Rubber Betty Blog so she is developing a taste imho. similiarly she's spotted the various designers doing retro 60's and 70's short black PVC rain jackets, the exact same style i'm going to have made up in latex in the next few months.
in australia you can get a selection of designs from shop TV if your brave enough to wear them. i guessing being oriental helps too.
americal apparel seems to be the place everyone is getting the metalics and latex like leggings, but one entry pointed to the cheaper and short version from ASOS in both latex like and chrome silver.
another example of how incestious fashion is and fashion bloggers are too is the style bubble entry on latex leggings ziping around so much that one dainabobar made her own variation with a pair of pvc ones from a thrift store. in a reaction to that a friend of hers Marla from Bucharest when out and got the real thing and send it a load of images to prove it here.
they are getting around from stockholm to would you believe in Nashville no less.
at kingdom of style, Queen Michelle first complains about the comfort and then produces a staggering array of images and looks of her in various mix and match and latex like leggings.
and finally see dorakas run has a well researched entry about fall fetish fashion with the mainstream fashion item and the original fetish version.
i think its safe to say that its all here to stay.... so will i start wearing my baby pink latex tights out? or will someone beat me too it?
