they even called them rubber

of all places it seems Urban Outfitters are now stocking 'Rubber Leggings's at a more reasonable 88US$ from relaunched 80's label 'Members Only'.

you can get a pair here as well as check out the other photo's of them.

firstly its curious that its crossed over to such mainstream shop and more so they decided to call them rubber. maybe they are cashing in on the risque appeal of 'rubber' when everyone is calling theirs latex. even when there obviously not latex or rubber in any way.

meanwhile the trend spotters at the fashion spot still debate over what the best pair as illustrated by the more informed entry by pingy1030 who sets a few other readers right:

Velony- There are some real life photos of the Sass and Bide leggings on ebay, though they are not on a model.

Taylor- The shine on the Daryl K's looks to be pretty permanent. It's not a processed texture on the fabric, the shine looks impossible to separate from the fabric because it's not a layer.. unlike the Kova&T's which will start to flake off especially around the knees. I own 2 of Daryl K's liquid leather pieces and they are also exceptional quality, the patent look won't fade.

pucci mama- Try calling the store at 212 529-8790. They are probably sold out since they are from F/W 07 but you can give it a try.

Radio- Having the same fabric content doesn't mean they are of the same quality, this is evident in many fabrics of the same content that look and feel different, which is the case for the Kova&T and AA leggings. The Kova&T are definitely better quality imo, however the peeling problem does occur- just to a lesser degree. I noticed they peel mostly at the knees (and probably butt but I haven't noticed anything yet) but so slightly that you really can't tell unless you are looking for microscopic flaws.


the full page is here and if you scroll down you can see shoots of the skinny leather jeans which seems to be the next fashion step up from 'latex leggings' for fall/winter 08/09.

also new just in - sort of - is lindsay lohan bringing latex like leggings and ones with knee pads to the masses. the pair to the left is her own brand. basic but still shiny and metallic.

for more information check out the ET entry on their site here which includes links to online retailers who now stock them along with a photo of lindsay with two other models who are oddly less model like and less attractive than lindsay.

not that dumb a blonde now is she?

Hi Asudem

They seem to be still going strong over here in the UK, well Brighton anyway. I stopped and show one Italian woman in the street with them on with my mobile but the shot didn't show up the gloss at all.

On the buss to a gig I spotted a second woman wearing them. So thats two per day in a small sized city.

Still no lead on local model for shooting the latex leggings so no freebie foe you yet. Sorry. Maybe when your over?
