Legskin tights are our designer fashion collection made with 190gsm feather light moisture wicking fabric. These beauties are individually hand printed with real artwork produced by our artists in residence. They are then hand cut and sewn in our boutique design studio in Christchurch, New Zealand. We are proud of our zero waste, environmentally sustainable printing practices and we guarantee our workmanship. Legskin tights won’t shrink or fade and the seams and labels are guaranteed to last. Over years of research and development we have created the lightest legging on the market to support flexibility and endurance in extremely hot and sweaty conditions; ideal for Hot Yoga, Dance, Hiking and Pilates. The designer artwork applied to the technical base gives you a garment you can wear for fashion, while never compromising function.
Bees and frogs. Bees are responsible for pollinating our plants and the health of frogs is closely linked to the health of our environment. Both can be seen as early warning systems of the problems that may eventually affect the rest of us. The Honeycomb design is a vibrant way of alerting us to the health of our planet. I love the perfect symmetry of a honeycomb and have a fascination with the colour and texture of amphibians. I wanted to tell a story about our environment and give it a mythical feel. I imagined the colours of dragon skin and created a palette to digitally overlay a macro image of a honeycomb. This design draws us in with its 3D texture, mesmerizing and hypnotizing as if looking into a dragons’ eye.
