Mugler x Wolford

Back in  the ’80s Wolford launched an exclusive two-set collection with Manfred Thierry Mugler. Now, forty years later, the two house reunite again. This season, Wolford teams up with Mugler for a visionary collaboration: an exclusive collection combining the Austrian brand’s signature skinwear with the French Maison’s world-renowned, couture attitude.

The brands’ shared passion for craftsmanship and materials shines in this concise collection of expressive pieces. Together, Mugler Creative Director Casey Cadwallader and Wolford’s skinwear experts designed a versatile selection of styles that celebrate the beauty, sexiness, and sensuality of the body.

«Wolford is the world’s leader of second skin, so their expertise and finesse are must-haves for Mugler. I have been so lucky to see their latest innovations, their archives, and to work directly with the Wolford team to make this new collectionCadwallader said in a press release.

The result: a limited edition of twelve meticulous pieces that combine refined flocking technique, sensual shaping functionality and enhanced tailoring features to set a new standard in alluring, avant-garde fashion. For the campaign, Wolford and Mugler have tapped photographer Zhong Lin to shoot those amazing photos showing Lara Stone, Sora Choi and Aj Yel.

Alberta Ferretti x Wolford

The collaboration consists of ten styles available in the neutral colours of white, black, and powder pink, which translate into a cleanliness capable of revealing the precision of the graphics and the workmanship. The collection is available now here.

Amina Muaddi x Wolford


Shoe designer Amina Muaddi teams up with Wolford for a limited-edition collaboration including hosiery, leggings, bodysuits, jumpsuits, socks and a few skin-tight dresses.
Wolford, which sells everything from lingerie to beachwear and ready-to-wear apparel, is trying to get back to its roots as an innerwear brand — and hoping Muaddi can help.

The collaboration between Amina Muaddi and Wolford is a benchmark partnership. Both share the same DNA with regards to craftsmanship and commitment to excellence. Both share the same dedication for timeless contemporaneity and both are impassioned towards helping women express their identity and boost their confidence. A shared approach, avoiding fast-fashion, for a world with more consciousness.

Thong Tights

Amina Muaddi credits her Jordanian and Romanian heritage, as well as her time spent visiting family in Italy in her youth, as the DNA behind her eponymous label. Launched in 2018, it fuses a sense of opulence with timeless glamour, and is inspired by tastemakers from across the world. For Wolford, she created some truly outstanding pieces, among them the fabulous Thong Tights (finally!) and the Crystal Net Tights.

Crystal Net Tights

The collection is launching worldwide on July 5, 2021.

Designer Tights


What makes this season’s vibrant hosiery so interesting is that those bold stockings are being paired with relatively straightforward clothes. Update a simple sweater and miniskirt with blue tights or elevate your evening dress with sexy lace hosiery. Those Balenciaga logo tights might look extreme at first pass, but under a trench coat they read almost normal. If we’ve learned anything from the trends this season, it’s that being just left of center feels so right and designer tights seem so much more tempting…

Mario Testino for Wolford

mario-testino-wolford-2

When I saw Wolford‘s new advertising campaign shot by no other than Mario Testino, I was really impressed. The Austrian hosiery brand lives clearly a new spirit. Testino, who is one of the world’s most influential photographers, creates images, that evoke the essence of an emotive, self-confident femininity that is sensual and aesthetic whilst being stylish and provocative.
