While we all may have varied opinions on what is considered a staple item in our closets, few could argue the necessity of the quintessential leather jacket. While a classic black biker jacket can be pulled off by virtually anyone, adding a pop of color to our leathers delivers a bolder statement. We’ve noticed that this newly circulating trend has the same “it” factor as our brightly hued faux fur coats, but with a fresher and sleeker aesthetic.
You Need Color in Your Life:
Designers such as IRO, Ulla Johnson, Maryam Nassir Zadeh, and Khaite showcased leather in bold shapes and even bolder shades for FW19, and show attendees were donning the trend on the streets as well. The emergence of colorful leather — in a display of different styles and silhouettes – seems to be this Spring’s newest trend.
From what we saw, leather doesn’t come in just a skinny pant or a structured jacket, but also in a dress, a blouse, a must-have boot and pretty much everything in-between.
Some designers have also sought the animal-friendly option — vegan leather. While the majority of vegan leathers are constructed from synthetic plastics, an increasing number of brands are opting for a plant-based substitute, using materials such as pineapple leaves and Pinatex. Nanushka’s vegan leather puffer proved to be a front-row favorite as its style was seen on many of Fashion’s it-girls in a variety of shades.
