wanda-nylon-Gio-Staiano-NowFashion-4-mainOne dives into Wanda Nylon’s FW16 collection feet-first. The stunning vinyl knee-highs draw the eye immediately; a more muted yet still assertive ensemble follows.

Besides turning a cliché on its head, Wanda Nylon’s FW prêt-à-porter packs a punch, taking sophisticated pieces from their basic status to whole new levels. A stunning vinyl coat, see-through overalls, leather scarves, and the knee-highs … always the knee-highs.

What’s mundane is interesting again, as Wanda Nylon plays with material in unexpected ways; ways that have me digging through couch cushions for extra cash.

Or at the very least, I can be inspired by the collection’s determination to take what’s commonplace to catwalk levels.

A rainy day doesn’t have to be so horrid for one’s look after all. I certainly could have used a pair of those boots and perhaps one of the vinyl baseball caps later in the rainy Parisian day, though I can hardly expect much else this time of year.

The mouth-obscuring turtlenecks alone are worth their weight in gold for those wind-blasted winter months.

Wanda Nylon just made winter much, much easier and much, much more appealing (if that’s even possible to begin with).
