Ah, socks. For so long they’ve held onto their reputation as an unwanted Christmas present, and now they’re finally getting their time in the limelight.
In an article published by Business of Fashion, socks are being hailed as “Fashion’s New Secret Weapon” as designers release their own monogrammed, logo or bejewelled foot offerings.
Gucci’s Resort 2018 collection featured models wearing brightly patterned socks with everything from denim to evening gowns and fur-trimmed capes. Balenciaga has also taken the sock trend to new heights, fusing socks with boots and pants for a truly one of a kind look.
With options available from Marc Jacobs, Vetements, Givenchy, Off White, and more, there’s no shortage of luxury hosiery to choose from. Designer socks are making it easier than ever for customers to purchase runway pieces without the hefty price tag, so you can bet they’ll be popping up on your Instagram feed in no time.
