There are some women (and men) who will do anything for fine European made hosiery. When they are not shopping their favourite black owned brands, they are letting FleshTone.net know about the tights they’ve had on special order for years. One such frequented brand is Italy’s ‘Silvia Grandi’.
Launched in the mid 1990s, Silvia Grandi is popular with young women for its on trend and easily accessible fashions. There are quite a few FleshTone options available across a range of Silvia Grandi tights. Our favourite are the ‘Top 15’ tights – these are 15 denier VERY sheer matte tights. They feel luxurious on, and they have a reinforced toe and cotton gusset (and are made with double covered yarn and lycra). The FleshTone colours available are Lama, Glace, Paprika, Noce, Bronzo, Castoro, Cappuccino and Cacao. These options range from light to dark brown and sizes go up to 5XXL. While there are quite a few brown options available for Silvia Grandi, it’s unlikely these browns were made with the woman of colour in mind – it appears to be a happy coincidence (though we can’t say for sure!). You will be extremely lucky to find an exact FleshTone colour match – though you will more than likely find a great ‘complementary’ hue for you. Prices start at 11Euro for tights, and international shipping is available from their website (though we recommend trying to find a local reseller for faster reliable service).
