LUXURY ITALIAN HOSIERY LABEL PIERRE MANTOUX CELEBRATES ITS 90TH ANNIVERSARY WITH AN EXCLUSIVE COLLABORATION WITH CARINE ROITFELD THROUGH SEVEN ALL-BLACK STYLES PRAISING THE MANY FACETS OF FEMININITY.
"To me, there is nothing more feminine than a pair of black tights. Together with the Pierre Mantoux team and their unparalleled savoir-faire, we have designed the tights I have always longed for", Roitfeld says.
ALL CRAFTED IN ITALY, THE NAME OF EACH PIECE IS THOUGHT DIRECTLY BY CARINE ROITFELD AND RECALLS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND EACH STYLE: FIERCE, NAUGHTY, CONFIDENT, BOLD, LOYAL, VERSATILE AND INDEPENDENT.
"We have used the thinnest yarn and focused on making the utmost beauty out of every part. I love all the tiny details that make every piece in the collection so special. Whether that's a soft Lurex yarn anklet, the detail of thicker stockings integrated within a pair of tights, a very thin line stitched on the back of the leg, or a little velvet Tour Eiffel to embellish the upper ankle, I wanted this collection to have a Parisian mood. I believe we have successfully translated this exquisite, timeless, and sexy atmosphere."
THE CARINE ROITFELD FOR PIERRE MANTOUX COLLECTION CAMPAIGN HAS BEEN DEVISED AS A SERIES OF SIX "SELF-PORTRAITS" LENSED BY RORY VAN MILLINGEN, A FREQUENT COLLABORATOR OF ROITFELD.
"By linking the notion of strength to femininity, the images show a woman who takes full control of her narrative," Carine Roitfeld says.
The exclusive Carine Roitfeld for Pierre Mantoux capsule collection will be available online and at select retailers internationally from October 2022.
