I don't often wear trousers. I infrequently wear jeans and can't take leggings seriously as a unit of clothing. It's akin to sweatpants in my book, and while I understand this makes me completely insane and way too narrow-minded it does make me really appreciate tights. I'm a huge fan of House of Holland's Pretty Polly collab, especially now that they've pegged blunt-banged British BOMBSHELL, Jessie J, for their fall/winter 2011 campaign.

So real quick sidebar: If you don't know HoH, it's Henry Holland's line and he's the dude who came up in the London club scene in, like, 2006, who made those '80s tees that had all-caps, sans serif slogans on them like, "CAUSE ME PAIN HEDI SLIMANE" and "I'LL TELL YOU WHO'S BOSS, KATE MOSS," etc., etc. Anyway, he's super handsome, has great hair, and is besties with Agyness Deyn.

Pretty Polly is a U.K. hosiery brand and for three years PP + HoH have been making beautiful music together like tights with stars on them, trompe l'oeil suspenders, alphabet tights, and bingo ball tights. Outrageous stuff (that you can now cop from its Facebook page), so you can totally see why the brash, mega-leggy bodaciousness that is Jessie J (uuuuh, did you guys see her "Domino" video?)is a perfect fit for their superhero-themed FIRST campaign shoot THAT WE HAVE A BEHIND-THE-SCENES VIDEO ON (it's hilarz). This is what each had to say on the project aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand what they listen to when they're getting ready to go out for a night on the town.

ON TIGHTS IN GENERAL: "Ever since I started out as a singer, tights have been my statement thing. I think they're for everyone. There's no age limit on them. I'd love to see my nan rocking a pair of the stars ones, that'd be brilliant."

ON TIGHTS IN GENERAL:

"I think the best thing about the tights is the detailing. You can wear it with longer skirts, longer dresses, and also denim shorts. It's much more about individuality...so I think we're going to sell the tights as two pairs per pack so you can layer and rip them."

MUSIC TO GET READY TO:

Anything by Jessie, obviously.

Anything by Nicki Minaj.

ON TIGHTS IN GENERAL:

"I think the world of tights has changed a lot. I think as women, we've taken them back as something sexy and something fashion-based, where it's not that sort of bubbly, school-tights association we have anymore. Tights can be incredibly versatile. They do flatter the leg so much, and they help the girl with any leg shape look great."

MUSIC TO GET READY TO:
