Blogger´s delight: colourful socks
Ever since i started blogging about my daily errands and the respective garments, i have been obsessed with vividly coloured socks. Clearly, the faint of heart will have a hard time admiring stockings in dashing, bold shades like burgundy red or moss green - however incorporating them in your wardrobe has a rewarding effect (if you like making fashion statements and being recognized by your peers).
It is because of this love that i was thrilled to have been contacted by Mr. Jacques Tiberghien of the french based retailer meschaussettesrouges.com, asking me if i was interested in reviewing a pair of their fine knee-high socks. I didn´t hesitate too long to accept this generous offer and here they are: a lovely pair from Bresciani, coming in a deep burgundy red with yellow-gold threads and a dark moss green pair made by Mazarin.
The online store deals with various other brands, too. The most famous one being Gammarelli, who have a long withstanding history of outfitting the feet of god´s own representative on earth, the pope. I bet he wouldn´t wear anything less than divine quality, right?
Bresciani, the maker of the lovely red pair gifted to me, has been in the business for more than 40 years and shurely does not come second in terms of quality and durability. Over the next few weeks, i´ll put that to the test - yet forseeing the result.
Mazarin, creator of the green pair, is a great example of how joint efforts bring to life a great product: the brand is an offspring of Alain Stark, creative tailor mastermind of the Paris-based, Rue de la Paix located company Stark and Sons and a team of inventive sock makers. As with Bresciani, i don´t expect any less joy in wearing them to the fullest.
As mentioned previously, you will see the two pairs being aired over the next few weeks in my daily outfits. Stay tuned to learn how my wearing experience turns out! :-)
