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.
I was fortunate enough to spend three months in Taipei, Taiwan where I immersed myself in a new culture, lifestyle and way of life. Drawing from the intensity and the beauty I was surrounded by, I worked solidly to create a new body of work, inspired by the nations’ rich diversity of native flora and fauna. This piece featuring Taiwan’s endemic Clouded Leopard, which is now sadly extinct, exists on the streets of Taipei. My intention was to create a series of these public artworks within Taipei’s urban landscapes, to act as a contrast but also as a gentle reminder of how precious our natural environment is.
Seen here, as artwork for Courage My Love, the piece is reinvented as a statement for the wearer, paying homage to broader environmental issues. The wearer will also “wow” with the confidence and sass of a cat.
