Grimoire Verum Legwear Collection

Chiffon Rose is an official stockist for Grimoire! A selection of legwear from their 'Verum' line will be up on Thursday 21st August at 9am AEST. I will admit that I am slightly fan-girling over the fact that such a cute Japanese Brand approved of my little shop!

Grimoire is synonymous with the term 'Dolly Kei' - a Japanese street fashion inspired by vintage fashion from America and Eastern Europe paired with a fascination with folklore and magic. 

Tokyo Fashion blog sums up Grimoire perfectly in the following shop images. Their cosy corner is filled with whimsical, fairytale-like clothing, accessories and knick knacks. Grimoire stock vintage clothing as well as original design tights and accessories.

The beauty of dolly kei fashion is that it can be as dressed up or dressed down to any degree. Here are a few inspiring images from Grimoire's shop blog

Verum tights can be incorporated into an everyday outfit (say a black dress or simple skirt and blouse combination) or dressed up in an over-the-top look.

Our collection includes the classic 80 denier stockings (pictured below).

"Lart de Lettolle"

The classic tights are beautiful with any outfit, but I will admit the cosy designs below are my favourites! We have the "Embroidery of Verum" series in black and bordeaux. The unusual muted accents in pink and moss green are what make the black colourway so beautiful.

The bordeaux is equally pretty with navy, pink and deep green accents.

Český Krumlov, Snails and Umbrellas!

Innocent World recently released a print based on the designer's travels through the Czech Republic. I couldn't resist it after seeing Yumi Fujiwara's design process in this youtube video. I matched the blues in the dress print with Eine Lilie's Snails and Umbrella's printed tights! The dress is also dotted with tiny red hearts which offers an opportunity to add cute heart accessories but I decided to accent the orange buildings this time.

The Eine Lilie tights are a lighter 30 denier but they are sturdy, very soft and comfortable.

Your dress! Much poof!

We will have a total of 5 varieties of petticoats available on the site from Thursday 6th August at 12 noon AEST.  I decided to photograph them worn under dresses for comparison. The Classical Puppets A-line petticoat creates a perfect A-shape silhouette as shown below.

The Malco Modes 582 petticoat creates a great shape for everyday wear under this Innocent World dress. The benefit on the Malco Modes petticoat is that is has an adjustable length and comes in sizes Petite - XL. You can view the petticoat here after 12 noon AEST tomorrow.
