ALLOVER LEATHER

NORMALLY LINKED TO THE WINTER SEASON, THE LEATHER TREND IS HERE TO STAY ALL SUMMER LONG

Whether it’s calf, nappa or suede leather is a fashion staple, and one of the oldest materials in the world.

We’ve seen a surprising amount of leather total looks on the SS15 catwalks, maybe because of the climate changes, or more likely because those clothes will hit the stores while winter season it’s still in full swing…

Anyway designers successfully managed to instill a doubt (in our closets):

“Do I have enough leather in my wardrobe?”
