Review: Oroblù Divine 10 Nanofibre Tights

       Before we start, I would like to thank my brother-in-law for lending me his DSLR.  Photos with better colour representation we saw in the last several months are a result of his generosity.  Though I am back with my iPhone 6s from September, I have already begun saving money for a full-frame DSLR.  Hopefully we don’t need to wait too long for it to come by.

       I got to know the Oroblù Divine range from an article by UK Tights about an year ago.  It described innovations that are implemented in hosiery.  One of which, is the use of “nanofibre”.  I said to myself, I must try one of these.  So here we are – the Divine 10 Tights by Oroblù.

Review: Wolford Fatal 15 Tights

       I seldom talk about men in tights because I believe clothing itself has no gender.  It is our society that shapes us what is and is not adequate to wear.  Having said that, clothing are usually made to fit or enhance characteristics of men and women.  This is also the case for tights.  Having a gusset can be useful for women but not so for men.  This is where seamless tights, like the Fatal 15 by Wolford, come in handy.

Brand Intro: Swedish Stockings

       It is amazing (scary?) how social media these days can link your activity to provide Ads that are very relevant to you.  But this is how I came to know Swedish Stockings.  The Stockholm-based brand is founded by Linn Frisinger and Nadja Forsberg.  Though relatively new, they have a big vision – to change and influence hosiery industry by bringing consciousness into the field.

Review: KUNERT Beauty 7 Tights

       First of all, a big applause to myself, as I tested these ultra-sheer tights in the coldest time of the year.  I somehow comprehend the polarisation we see in fashion shows, that seasonal trends are shown half an year earlier.  The hardest part for me was to keep still while taking close range shots.  Anyway, let’s look at these beautiful tights closely.

August 2017 Newsletter – One milestone reached

       To write a product comparison between brands has always been one of my goals.  It wasn’t easy though, as it means I have to familiarise myself with products from two brands.  After a year’s practice, I finally did it.  You will find the article here:

Comparison Review: Fogal Caresse Tights vs. Wolford Individual 20 Tights

Recap

       In addition to the comparison, I also wrote three tights reviews.  They are chosen to suit the ever-changing July weather.  I especially spent a lot of time on the Falke compression tights, as it was itself a fascinating piece of art.  You can read the articles from the links below:

Review: Fogal Opaque Tights
Review: Wolford Satin Touch 20 Tights
Review: Falke Leg Energizer Invisible 15 Tights

       I have also revised my review on Wolford Pure 30 Complete Support Tights.  This is because I bought a second pair in Caramel colour.  Hence it is worth while to check it out as both colours are now featured in one review.  I have also made it easier to read:

       Welcome to my second video.  My partner kept saying that I look like a frog with these tights on, so I decided to make fun of myself.  Tap/click and enjoy the amusement:

Bad news and good news

       I have to return the DSLR that I am currently using.  Fortunately, my brother has promised me to lend me his DLSR, which I will receive in mid September.  I am taking as many photos as possible before I return the current one.   Therefore, I don’t have to rely on my mobile phone too much during the transition.  Undoubtably, DSLR manages colours better than mobile phones when there is little contrast.

Forecast

       To contrast with the dark colours of July, I have decided to make August nude.  Let’s hope the weather stays mild on both sides of the hemisphere, so we can all enjoy nude sheer tights all day long.  I am also in the process of revising some of my older reviews, so they are up to the standards of my current ones.  There is quite some work, but it will be fantastic.  Enjoy the beautiful August and I will see you soon.
