SOCKS POWER

襪子,是不容有失的東西,它可以遊走於西裝以及街頭服裝;穿上恰到好處的襪子,猶如煲湯灑鹽一樣,可以帶出食材的的鮮味,為本來平平無奇的靈魂添上意義。近年街頭風熾熱,襪子成為重要戲法,high fashion為加入street elements都想盡計仔,一眾設計師如何在僅有的布料上命轉乾坤,閒閒地都要接近千元的襪子又怎樣過得了兩群消費者的關口,實在是考起他們的功力。

毫不起眼的襪子,一直是穿搭不可或缺的一部分,更加是商家最能以小博大的機會;就算這幾年全球整體經濟不景氣,襪子的銷售卻持續增長,當中主要貢獻者來自男性,比女性的銷量多於七成。如果本住有海就要填,有樹就要劈的心態,品牌自然不會放過這個無限掘金的可能性,那怕你的雙腳是長是短是粗是幼,反正就要用棉質或尼龍來包覆你的整個腳踝;但偏偏潮流就好似是計算過的英雄電影,先有巴黎世家以那雙白底黑襪的Speed Trainers掀起襪子鞋,然後今季又大玩超激短褲,無非都是想大家買番對靚襪襯一套full look之餘,每分每秒都要抓住觀眾眼球,叫時裝人買得心服口服。

有說襪子的起源其實是來自女人,古代羅馬城的婦女在腳和腿上纏著細帶子,這種綁腿便是最原始的襪子。後來西班牙人在十六世紀開始把連褲長襪與褲子分開,同時用編織的方法來編織襪子;到了今天出現的工業化襪子則始於1860年,當時製襪業一直尋找新的材料代替少而昂貴的真絲,混紡紗的產生令製襪業獲得空前成功,1928年便誕生第一雙尼龍襪,漸漸亦走向不同款式與花臣。時間讓人成長,也可以讓物件提升地位,襪子在時間巨輪下,由護腳的工具進化成時裝的終極武器,首選Prada的cyber socks,配上Miuccia Prada女士設計的短褲,夠晒先鋒以及玩味十足;Givecnhy、Gucci、Valentino、Fendi、Thom Browne、Sacai的花喱花碌襪仔同樣搶眼,就算是Balenciaga的林兆波同款白襪仔,加上logo之後又是另一個level。所以說,在最尋常的襪子變出花款是設計師的本事,用它來為整體造型畫龍點睛的,就是我們追求時裝的樂趣,也是買名牌的最低消費入場劵。
