Looking sensual is never difficult with stockings from French hosiery brand Cervin. The French company is famous for creating some of the finest stockings in the business. The firm counts members of royalty and A-list celebrities among its high-end clientele. If straps and strings are what you are after, Cervin manufactures some of the best in the world.
The brand recently held an underground “Swing Time” party. This event featured music from the period of France’s liberation. And in keeping with Cervin tradition, the evening also featured classic retro stocking designs from that historic period. Even in 2011, Cervin continues to hold true to its historic roots. The firm has been family-owned since 1918 and its priority is creating the finest stockings in the world. For this reason, current owner Serge Massal spent two years looking for, then restoring two ancient machines to create the finest of stockings. Massal is committed to returning to the original methods of production to create fine-textured, high-quality stockings.
This is one reason why even Victoria’s Secret has been unable to surpass this long-standing family-owned firm. Cervin stockings are loved for their retro look and one-of-a-kind weaving style. The back seams are painstakingly sewn by hand. Cervin also makes some of the thinnest stockings in the world – so thin, in fact, that they recommend wearing gloves while handling them.
Cervin retails stockings of nylon, cashmere and 100 percent silk. But the company is also the only one to take on orders to make customized stockings for its high-end and high-profile clients.
