The present season deals with universal romanticism. It can seem that nothing romantic is possible to make of leather, which on the nature is rude, democratic and more likely suitable for a street fashion, than for haute couture. That is a mistake! Leather is one of the most magnificent models in a collection haute couture, which has already caused a storm of delight during time and after display is executed. Say that the most whimsical and choosy stars made a battle for the right to become owners of the refined leather gifts and leather purse!
It is still far from being the fact that the leather is not capable to express high feelings. But we shall not be about high. We shall return on our guilty ground. The most practical and utilitarian things in inter-season period are good from a qualitative leather. To tell the truth, there are not so many leather raincoats in this season. The simple leather raincoat is boring, and the today's fashion does not stand for boredom.
If nevertheless you would like to pick up leather gifts, be guided by any unusual highlight. For example, on bright color (citreous from Proenza Schouler), on flower stuffing of a satiny lining (Marc Jacobs), on the exotic texture of a python from Prude. Eventually, pay attention to size and ornament of leather bag.
Jackets seem to be more traditional leather gifts. Besides, it is necessary to admit that traditional forms have here again receded on a background, given up the place to not more ordinary variants stylized under any concrete direction of a fashion or the retro-tendency. In particular, you will not see in collections of jackets so popular half-year ago.
However, very interesting retro-variants are offered. We shall tell that the collection from Dior suggests plunging into the forties, and the models remind French guerrillas-poppies as they are represented with modern films. Soft black berets, soft black leather jackets with set of pockets, thongs. Retro-style is looked through and in graceful leather gifts from YSL, however authors of a collection have made travel by the machine of time a little bit further.
Amateurs of radicalism can take the variants suggested in a collection from Exte where we can see the geometrical applications in style of the great Paco Rabban. Thus the silhouette of a jacket or a raincoat has no special value; as such decor is well-looked in any variation even at very simple cut.
Besides, the applications and inserts can be not only from leather. If there is a contrast not only on color, but also under the texture it looks twice advantageously! The most traditional in this season is the variant of trousers from leather. Certainly, they can be of the brightest and exotic colors (for example, it is shrill green from Dirk Bikkemberg). Leather trousers are narrow, densely fitting, usual length or up to ankles.
By the way, the actual color of leather products is corporal-beige. Diversified leather gifts are especially good in this color on a silhouette or certain style of jackets.
