Trend Report: It’s All About Leather

Leather is getting a new look for Autumn/Winter 2014, with brands such as Cooper St, Sass, Fate and Honey & Beau embracing the leather trend with a unique modern twist.

Drawing on the 90’s trend, womens dresses, midi-skirts and sports-luxe tops are re-worked to combine mesh and lace with contrasting leather panelling.

Whether it’s faux leather or the real deal, celebrities and designers a like, are embracing this rock chic trend and creating something versatile and strikingly feminine no-matter what your style is.

The leather trend is worked into statement binding on relaxed boyfriend knits, panelled into structured blazers for women and seen in must have pants and leggings with leather ponti detailing.

It’s all about adding a modern touch to this age old trend with statement snakeskin inspired textures seen in leather look variations which are contrasted with matte, patent and more vintage inspired fabric panelling.
