NOTE: I changed the title… it turns out that the “Signature Lux 90” is not some exclusive style made for Neiman Marcus. It is the “Perfect Opaque” style, simply labeled differently.
I was a bit confused by a number of naming variations that Donna Karan had come up with for a line of opaque tights. You would find “Perfect Opaque”, “Signature Luxury”, “Signature Lux 90”, “Luxe Layer”, “Luxury Layer”, “Sueded Jersey” and so on. They’re all opaque tights… so what’s the difference? Well, in some cases the same style is just being resold under a different name. But, in other cases, there are some physical differences (ranging from slight to more substantial). And some hosiery makers will create a style that is distributed to only a few select stores.
I recently came to learn about the “DK Luxe Layer” tights, which are a very solid looking opaque style (could pass for 120 to 200 denier) with an inner micro fleece layer, sold through Bloomingdale’s. They have a terrific looking front panel that can serve both women and men very well. These are different from the “Luxe Layer” style also offered by Donna Karan, as the Donna Karan website shows a different panty/brief design (seam is up the front).
