Sophie Ellis-Bextor has designed a vintage-inspired collection of tights.

The 35-year-old singer teamed up with hosiery brand Pretty Polly to create the range which combines her love of iconic retro fashion and music.

The brunette beauty delved into the brand's archives for inspiration for the collection which is set to hit stores in Spring 2015.

Sophie said: ''Pretty Polly is a very old established British company, they've been around since the 20s and they have in their archives these amazing really cool vintage designs and I love my vintage clothes, so that was something I definitely wanted to reference, one of those designs.

''I also wanted to do something quite fun to do with music, and so we played around with designs with music notes, and piano keys, and that kind of thing so there was quite a lot of more contemporary - there's a vintage design and a contemporary design.''

In addition to her love of retro style, the 'Young Blood' hitmaker credits music legends David Bowie, Madonna and Bjork for influencing her look.

She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''I've always loved my vintage stuff but I also love looking at what everyone else wears on stage, and sparkly stuff, and disco and all that kind of thing.

''The great thing about performing is you can do as much or as little as you want to, I think that's the brilliant thing about being an artist, being creative. I've been inspired by all sorts of people, from the really outlandish people like Bjork or David Bowie who create their own alter egos on stage, or pop stars like Madonna, who I loved when I was growing up.''

Sophie's new collection for Pretty Polly will launch in Spring 2015 and will be available to buy from www.prettypolly.co.uk.
