something new…

Leggings!

Indeed, that word came out of my computer and to emphasize,
here’s a little wiki analysis:

Leggings are a type of skin-tight garment that covers the legs and that may be worn by both men and women. Formerly, leggings were two separate garments, one for each leg.
Modern leggings are typically made from a blend of lycra (aka spandex), nylon, cotton, or polyester blend, but they can also be made from wool, silk and other materials. Leggings are available in a multitude of colors and decorative designs. Leggings are sometimes worn fully exposed, but are more traditionally worn partially covered by a garment such as a skirt, a large t-shirt, shorts, or fully covered by an outer garment, such as a full length skirt.

Of course there is a reason for this:
This type of garment has just been added to my collection at my art shop.
However there are two added bonuses to the description above:
1.  Their quality: A proprietary six-panel cut and sew construction provides an unprecedented quality in fit and versatility with an adjustable waist line for wearing high, low or somewhere in between. Using the highest quality anti-microbial polyester spandex material, these premium leggings wick moisture and remain breathable, making them perfect for running or runways.
2.  Their looks: Guess who’s designed them AND they can be combined with various types of tees!
Here are my first two designs:
Paths of Color [Turquoise, Blue and Green]

    They are gorgeous Marina! I might be a bit (that should read ‘too’) old for the printed leggings, but I adore the T shirts. Fab job!

    • Oh, no! We are as old as we feel! I have to admit though that as much as I love looking at them I very very rarely wear them! So happy you like them and my tees, Madhu.
      Have a beautiful June and weekend ahead! 🙂

  3. How fabulous, Marina! The poppies leggings are wonderful!! I’m totally going to request a pair for my July birthday xo LOVE to you, designer beauty 🙂

    • Awwww….. that is so sweet, my dear Christy! Thank you so much for the thought!
      So, you are a July child, then?! 🙂
      A slightly [understatement] delayed thank you and LOVE to you too, my dear friend!!!! 🙂

  7. These are wonderful, Marina, and even my daughter who is 23 has two pair of crazy pants, which is what she calls them. They’re kind of like leggings and yoga pants all in one. 🙂 Hope you’re doing well. ♥

    Excellent post Marina

  18. Resa says:

    Those are amazing leggings! Marina, I am working more than 12 hours a day. I am very tired, but the good news is when this project is over I will have saved some $ to go shopping! I will definitely be shopping in your space on Society 6. Take care! _Resa

  21. aFrankAngle says:

    Although not the type of garment I would wear, I think your artistic style is very fitting for these. Good choice! … and good luck with sales.

  29. Lucid Gypsy says:

    Oh fabulous, they make me think of Desigual, do you know that clothing range? I’ve just bought a bag of theirs!

  30. violetski says:

  31. Cat Forsley says:

    love em – I would soooooooooooooooooooo wear THEM XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXXOXOXOXO
    beautiful creations xo

  32. Wow! I wish I had 4 legs, so I could wear both pairs at once! And I certainly hope these designs will soon be available in men’s suits. What a sensation I’d cause when I strolled into the Illustrator’s Club and ordered a prune juice on the rocks… : )

    Re the tees: I especially like the blue and green design, because it looks like you can see into someone’s digestive system, and it’s churning away in a riot of color!!

    Beautiful work, my dear Marina!! Your work is always gorgeous, but these designs look particularly stunning on leggings. The fashion world will be singing your praises, which, of course, is something I do all the time… : )

    • Oh, I sure am glad you don’t actually have 4 legs! 😆 !!!!!
      As for the Illustrators Club, well, you need no special suit to make a sensation. A very special red carpet awaits you every time you appear – as it should!
      About the digestive system… you reminded me of an old advert about a washing powder with blue and green speckles. Imagine having swallowed that! Ta-da!!!!!
      I know not about the fashion world but I do know that my life would be gloomy without your praise.
      Thank you, my dear friend! 😉

  33. dilipnaidu says:

    Smashing colours and designs Marina. Cheers and best always 🙂

  34. How beautiful and what a surprise! I’m impressed, Marina!

  35. kerlund74 says:

    Absolute wonderful! I love the red poppies on black, they are just fantastic! Beautiful work:)

  36. That is so cool. I love your designs and they look wonderful on the leggings. You are so creative!!!!!

  37. Make Something Mondays says:

    Ohhh my! I am a legging fanatic! Big fan of the blue and green ones 🙂

  38. Jess says:

    Now everyone can wear art on their legs 😉 Love the leggings- very colorful and fun!

  39. sriramjanak says:

    Just beautiful Marina…:-)

  40. Amy Reese says:

    Wow, that’s gorgeous!

  41. Aquileana says:

    Stunning dear Marina…. I love the prints on the t shirts, very neat.
