Actually most of this isn’t leatherette, its proper leather- but I just couldn’t resist the title (in reference to one of my all time fav Grace Jones songs in case you’re wondering). London Fashion Week was such an inspirational event this season, and in no small way due to the ultra stylish attendees. If you look back at historical LFW coverage you’ll see that this is the perfect barometer for the trends that are going to come through strongly over the season ahead, so take note and start your shopping list from the directions we’ve highlighted this week.
Leather was a material being backed by the fashion pack, and not only as the ubiquitous Biker jacket (thanks Burberry for keeping that one alive for Autumn). The newest direction in leather, however, is the skirt. From mini skater skirts to minxy pencils and on into midi length, full A lines.
Thanks again to Asta for all of the great shots, and thanks to all of you for stopping to have us take your photograph.
