A cold front is finally supposed to hit New York this weekend, and bare legs simply won’t fly for those of us who don’t employ a personal driver. Opaque tights are already a staple in most women’s winter wardrobes, but lately, designers and tastemakers have been experimenting with hose that go above and beyond basic black. See: Francesco Scognamiglio‘s lacy Spring lineup or Oscar de la Renta‘s pre-fall show, not to mention the luxury legwear label Fogal, which toasted its new Madison Avenue flagship boutique on Tuesday night.
“Unique hosiery accentuates the skin to an entirely new level,” said Jean Paul Gaultier, whose Spring catwalk featured the designer’s new lingerie collaboration with La Perla. “Stockings use the skin and natural shape of the body as a canvas to create an allure for the entire outfit, tying the whole look together.”

Rumor has it that Calvin Klein is launching its new fragrance, Beauty, for the over-40 set, but at a recent party to fête the scent, forgot to invite editors from magazines like More and Redbook that cater to said set. Teen Vogue, on the other hand, was represented. [WWD]
Nominations for England’s Maggie Awards—which are given for the best magazine covers—are in. Go to the Maggies site to cast your vote for the best fashion cover. Lara Stone (for Vogue U.K.), Sienna Miller (for GQ U.K.), and Uma Thurman (for Harper’s Bazaar U.K.) are among the cover stars who grace the glossies. [Maggies]
And speaking of the U.K., swinging dandies will soon have another sartorial option: Liberty is launching its own branded menswear label. Florals a-go-go, baby! [WWD]
If Francesco Scognamiglio’s newish association with the classic Italian outerwear maker Allegri had followers like Chloë Sevigny, Alice Dellal, and Madonna worried that he’d lose his edge, the video he gave Style.com a sneak peek at above should dispel any concern. In it, model Hannelore Knuts, sporting a peak-shouldered camel coat, a belted knit dress dipped in gold, and some very heavy-looking necklaces, all from his Fall collection, shares screen time with a trio of buffed-to-perfection naked men. The short film, which was directed by Giampaolo Sgura and styled by Paolo Turina, “is an allegorical yet ironic representation of my idea of femininity,” Scognamiglio told us. “Apparently strong and self-conscious and quasi-androgynous, while in reality extremely fragile, passionate, and romantic.” We’re not exactly sure what that means, but we like the way it looks. You can catch the video in its X-rated entirety on www.francescoscognamiglio.com when the Italians return from their August vacations.
