pv crush: collégien socks & tights

We weren't planning on selling socks and tights when we launched Petits Vilains.

When it came time to plan our first photoshoot, we started looking for the right socks and tights to style with our clothes and we kept landing on Collégien's beautiful pieces. After shooting them and having our kids wear them for a few months, we knew we had to carry them.

The ribbed socks and tights are made of long-fibre Egyptian cotton with a tiny bit of stretch which makes them incredibly soft and easy to put on.  The tights have a comfortable wide elastic waist band and seams around the seat so they don't fall down.

And the colours...they are just always spot on. Some of our favourites this season are  Ocean, Nutmeg, Berry, and Navy.

We love ankle socks and knee highs with sandals in late summer and early fall and the tights under dresses and bloomers when temperatures dip. 

Collégien is a family-run business that has been manufacturing hosiery in the small village of Briatexte in the southwest of France for almost a century.  The Guilles family has passed down their expert hosiery knowledge from generation to generation, making every pair of socks and tights in the same factory from start to finish. 

We are carrying the ankle socks, the knee highs and the solid and lurex tights, from size 1 year up to 8 years. Head over to the accessories section of our shop to see all the options. We hope you all love them as much as we do!
