Les Queues de Sardines are an original range of tights notable for their unconventional and unique graphic style. Add a pinch of narrative humor - the result is a selection of elegant and eye-catching tights that will dress up your legs. Screen-printed by hand in limited quantities on a farm in rural France by Olivier and Marion, these rare and exclusive fashion tights will never go unnoticed.
The Autumn/Winter 2010 collection (shown below) are available in store and online from Luna & Curious, the only UK stockist of these amazing tights. The new collection features the golden winged ankles of Icare (that's Icarus for the Americans), graphic foliage trailing down or growing up the leg and the humorous Descente d’Organes, depicting an elegant and refined jumble of internal body parts dancing down the wearer’s leg.
