So although other designers have given socks on the catwalk a big thumbs up, when Chanel does it, you absolutely know it’s okay!

Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2014 runway collection was accompanied by Karl Lagerfeld’s  invention of sock boots.

Take inspiration and create your own sock boots by wearing a pair of heels and any pair of ITEM m6 knee highs socks!

ITEM m6 and Mark Fast

ITEM m6 loves Fashion Week, and following on from our collaboration with Anne Gorke for Berlin Fashion Week, we were honoured to be the official sponsors for the Mark Fast AW14 London Fashion Week show. Our socks were styled up with Mark’s carefully constructed designs.

This season his use of vibrant colour blocking and fabric manipulation formed impressive silhouettes on the catwalk. Our classic Piqué stripe socks in Black were used for every look which we felt suited collection perfectly.

Simone Rocha and her Knee-highs

Designer Simone Rocha’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection went in a whole new direction from what she normally showcases for the catwalk and after paying a visit back to her roots in Ireland, she produced a raw but romantic collection that included a very subtle colour palette, sheer fabrics and feminine decorations.

Rocha used knee high socks as a styling tool and teamed them with various flat shoes including brogues, gladiator sandals and T-bar shoes. Knee highs are making a come-back at the moment, so naturally all the designers have took notice and are introducing their own personal twists.

Rocha’s choice of knee highs are sheer and although decorated; are still quite understated.

ITEM m6’s range of sheer knee highs could be easily styled in the same way as this collection and with the vast variety of colours we offer, you can be spontaneous and create some amazing looks!

Sheer Sock Fun at Meadham Kirchhoff

Meadham Kirchhoff’s last Spring/Summer Ready-to-wear collection (amongst many other things) featured numerous styles of sheer socks.

As always the styling was flawless and eclectic, introducing a romantically gothic style contrasted with enhanced naivety in the form of socks, bags and shoes.

Meadham and Kirchhoff continue to surprise us season after season and it is their fearless approach when crossing designer boundaries that sets them aside from the rest.

Introduce some fearless styling into your wardrobe with ITEM m6’s range of ankle socks and knee-highs!

ITEM m6 with Anne Gorke at Berlin Fashion Week

Check out this exciting footage from Berlin Fashion Week where ITEM m6 collaborated with fashion designer Anne Gorke and provided hosiery for her A/W 14 collection.

 

Socks and Heels

There is always a slight question mark over whether socks and heels are appropriate, so ITEM m6 are here (along with a little help from Dries Van Noten) to assure you that it’s okay and can also be a very effective and edgy styling statement.

The Dries Van Noten AW 13 collection at New York Fashion Week showcased his stamp of approval on wearing socks with heels (sandals to be exact). Chunky, dark, statement socks were worn with delicate metallic sandals, creating the basis for outfits that battled against each other; whether the battle was the oversized heavy weight jackets against the feminine skirt silhouettes or the androgynous appearance of the models against the copious feathering and oriental prints.

Whatever the reasoning behind this magnificent collection, it has encouraged us at ITEM m6 to encourage YOU to follow the trend and create your own individual „socks with heels“ style.

So be inspired by one of fashion’s most prominent designers and upload your „socks with heels“ looks to the blog, on Instagram or to twitter with the hashtag #ITEMM6DVNINSPIRATION
