Leather Evolution, Yay or Nay?

When we think of leather as clothing material, biker jacket must be on the top list. No matter it is real or synthetic, today leather seems to give creative ideas for some designers , especially in this Fall 2011. I spotted many leather pieces in many forms of clothing, colors or even as details.

Giles picked black leather and transformed it into some styles including tube top, corset, coat and even suit. While Calvin Klein preferred leather in nude color which was presented in skirts and dresses. As always, Calvin Klein maintains the clean cutting and simplicity.

If an outfit that is entirely made of leather seems to be too heavy for you, then you can wear it the way Narciso Rodriguez does. He applies leather as the detail that is combined with other material.
