Gerbe is one of the best examples of Parisian excellence we have ever seen in the realm of legwear or anywhere else besides. Gerbe tights and their other hosiery items are some of the most loved and adored in the industry, and they are one of a handful of significant names known for making their legwear in the heart of Paris still to this day. Gerbe is also one of the most senior designers from France that are always working to this day, being founded in 1904. Gerbe is one of the most experienced designers, thanks to over a century of fantastic fashion tights from their company. Gerbe stockings and tights all carry that pedigree with them, and they come with one of the best reputations you will ever find. But what exactly is Gerbe’s range comprised of? Well, first and foremost, they stick with their heritage and create items that echo the traditions of Parisian design — namely, backseam tights or even more traditionally, backseam stockings. French backseam stockings are some of the most well regarded and iconic items of legwear ever made, and Gerbe specialises in them. They have a stellar range of items that also features matte stockings, glossy tights and other staples of legwear history. If you want traditionally made French backseam stockings or classic backseam tights, then Gerbe is exactly the designer you will need.
Gerbe Gardenia Tights are classics! We have another from the Gerbe 2004 fashion collection. Indeed, one of the more extreme designs, based on 15 denier sheer to waist tights with all the usual high quality features you would expect from Gerbe. Apparently, they did not adhere to the “more is less” theory of design.
Gerbe Corsaire Tights is a definite recommendation! The current fashion, in the UK at least, is for “footless” hosiery. This can mean anything from tights that come down from the ankle to correct Capri length just below the knee. There is no doubt that some styles look better than others and you have to be careful to choose one that suits the length and shape of your legs.
