The Hole Story | Fashion's fascination with the fishnet | MODE+MAISON

I’ve long been a fan of the fishnet.  Way back when, when I was climbing the corporate ladder (no pun intended), I could often be seen sporting a pair, injecting a little bit of subversive style into conservative City dressing.   And before sheers returned to the fashion fold, they would be my go to legwear when wearing an LBD.

Unfortunately, I came across them after the February shows had already come to a close.   But with Paris Fashion Week now in full swing, it’s the perfect time to share my favourites…
