This is not exactly shoe material, but it's somehow related. I wanted to talk to you Adesgo, a Romanian creator of tights that was started in 1926 (!) which has adapted so well to the changes in history and fashion, that they are still creating and selling tights and everything related. You can read more about their amazing history here, in the About section.
Their brand under which they create and sell their work nowadays is called Diamond and is made of several collections, grouped according to styles and fabrics: Classic Design, Tattoo Design, Side Design, Aquarell, Soft Touch, Socks, Leggings, Winter Design, Diamond, Sandals and Medcare. I love their branding, their calatogue and the way they present their products. We're talking about professionals here!
I got my hands on their catalogue for F/W 2010-2011 and I can't wait to go to their showroom and buy some of their wonderful designs (they even have the dot tights that I have been looking for for ages and vertical-stripped thick tights that I will obssesively wear this winter).
You can find their well-stocked showroom on 220 Serban Voda str., District 4 (vis-a-vis of the Tineretului Park, down the hill). Happy shopping!
