Leather is one of my favourite fabrics. Jackets and mini skirts being my two key pieces for A/W 2011. Above are just two takes though on a leather dress. A black leather dress can be quite hard to wear (think of Angelina at the premiere of Mr and Mrs Smith in Versace), it’s a little goth. So by toning down the colour to softer shades, you maintain the luxury of the fabric with a wearable colour that’s versatile.
