Introducing the World’s First Left-footed Stockings for Lefties
No Women Left Behind: Stockings for an Inclusive WorldAt VienneMilano, we believe being a leftie doesn't mean you should be left out. We aim to become the “left-hand woman” to fashionista southpaws who're sick of their legwear feeling a little too “right.”
How?Often neglected by the fashion industry, we've taken it upon ourselves to spark a revolution of legwear designed specifically for left-handed people.
A Systemic Issue?Across the board, left-handed people are subject to undeserved discrimination. Historically, they were labeled as “clumsy,” but how could they be anything else when their world is back to front? Even more shocking still, they were associated with the devil, and not the type that wears Prada.
Neglected by the Fashion Industry
Lefties have often been shunned by fashion labels. We suspect this might be related to the negative connotations associated with left-handers throughout history. Not willing to “dirty” their marketing strategies or the reputation of their collections, many have steered away from even addressing the subjugation of lefties in the fashion industry – the prospect of left-handed lines and collections isn't even on the table.
However, since roughly 10% of the world population is left-handed, we believe they should really reevaluate the table.
What's more, lefthanded women, traditionally, have been known for their soft spot for soft nylon. Queen Victoria, not content with having an entire era named after herself, also decided to set stockings on the fast track to global trending status, which they've yet to shake. Yes, she was left-handed. Sarah Jessica Parker, who lent her legs to many iconic Carrie Bradshaw stocking styles, also just happens to be left-handed.
We're Making a ChangeThere comes a time when every injustice has to give way to change, and we've decided to set the ball rolling.
How are we Going to do it?
We already have the machinery; all we had to do was flip it 1800. Our stockings are specifically knitted by a special machine that's rotated at 180 degrees, making it easier for left-handed people to put on the stockings. While we plan to expand our left-handed leggings collection soon, for now, it features a few favorites that we've hand-selected from our bestsellers. These brave styles are going where no stockings have ever gone before, and we're here to help them every step along the way. From pioneering production to making a statement on your legs, ISABELLA, ALBA, and LUANA are up to the job.
