Runway Trends: Leather

Leather has appeared in many of the Fall 2009 collections, and is sure to be a main trend this Fall. From prim dress coats at Jean Paul Gaultier, Knee length skirts at Max Mara and Yves Saint Laurent to ladylike shift dresses all over the runways. Designers have given a new look to leather rather than the traditional tough styles into a much softer look, many of the leather dresses could even be mistaken for silk. I'm not a huge fan of leather dresses, or suites, I prefer the traditional biker stye jacket, but there are some really lovely pieces.

(bellow) This editorial "sweet child of mine" from Vogue Nippon August 2009 has a focuse on leather pieces from many collections such as Yves Saint Laurent and Balmain. Staring Model Abbey Lee Kershaw and shot by Terry Richardson.
