Our fantastic journey through the pantyhose music video universe has brought us to this fantastic piece of film directed by Phil Harder for one of our favorite bands, the vibrant electroclash indie rock synthpop powered beauties that form the Brazilian band CSS aka Cansei de Ser Sexy. The music’s name is “City Grrrl” and it’s featured on their latest album called “La Liberación” which is full of rocking tracks that you should definitely check out.
Throughout the music video we can see the lead singer Luísa Hanae Matsushita aka Lovefoxxx which is an absolutely gorgeous girl of German, Portuguese and Japanese descent of 28 years old which abandoned her activity as illustrator and fashion designer to dedicate herself entirely to the band.
On the first scene of the video she’s walking out of a suburban bus onto New York city and heading straight for an underground bathroom where her casual laid back look is about to undergo a deep transformation. She opens up her bag, starts putting on a whole array of accessories and grabs a pair of scissors which she uses to cut her jeans into ripped denim shorts. Beneath them she’s already wearing a pair of black lace pantyhose with spider web patterns which completely match the electro punkish look she’s going for, all she needs is some bright red paint on her hair and she’s ready to hit the streets.
The next few shoots are of Lovefoxxx dancing in front of a graffiti wall of fame with a big baggy yellow sweater, brown boots and the aforementioned tights but later on we can see a scene with a really cool look where she’s wearing fishnet pantyhose and, in a rapid sequence of edited shots, combining them with several different outfits in front of a turntable. There are also a couple of shots where she’s wearing a white t-shirt over a black fishnet long sleeved top which is really cool.
All in all an awesomely energetic pantyhose music video with really cool editing for an awesome music to add to the other excellent tracks CSS has produced in the past.
Ariana Grande is an American singer and actress that certainly knows how to rock her pantyhose. Pantyhose is omnipresent on her outfits and she has been seen sporting it during casual strolls on the street to grand performances and even halloween parties. Her great taste in legwear expands to cute over the knee socks as well like the white ones that she uses on the music video for her hit single “Problem” and during some of her stage performances after the video was released. We’ve selected a photo of Ariana sporting these white knee-high socks for our featured article image in a somewhat of a schoolgirl uniform featuring a checkered black and white skirt that complements the legwear very well.
Katie came up with the idea of creating Active Bloom in the Fall of 2013 when she was pregnant with her second child and doing prenatal yoga. There were no maternity activewear companies online at the time and nothing in brick and mortar stores so she realized there was a huge gap in the market that she would love to explore and come up with an affordable option.
She bought a cheap pair of leggings and adapted their waistband to create her first prototype. She chose to start focusing solely on leggings because she finds them to be the most important piece in any activewear wardrobe. Especially in California they seem to be the staple in every gal’s closet and if you’re pregnant you don’t want to sacrifice anymore of your wardrobe than you have to!
One year later, in the Fall of 2014 she decided to look into creating and selling her idea on a larger scale. She opened her shop in January of this year and started with Etsy as a sort of experiment to see if they could help her on the marketing side since she’s not very technologically savvy and has to spend quite some time taking care of her two kids it was an easy way to start selling quickly. Katie is currently working on building her own website and she’s also working on a few designs for tops and shorts to add to the current products.
