Sophisticated, sexy, rock’n’roll or wise, leather knows how to adapt to every moment of our lives, a trend that crosses the seasons with agility. Leather selection, from the NOW pieces to wear until spring.

Leather: focus on the spring-summer 2021 collections, which offer classics that can be worn very easily. The designers propose a more sober, less aggressive fashion, with a return to minimalist and classic styles reminiscent of the 90s. Leather has been spotted in the fashion capitals of New York, Milan and Paris. Armani, Chanel, Hermès and Celine are some of the brands that caught our attention with the presence of leather in their collections.

The biker jacket

The biker jacket is definitely making a comeback this season. We love a classic and timeless leather jacket for its versatility and functionality. It can be worn for a casual daytime look combined with elegant high-waisted pants like Chanel offers. But leather is versatile, so we dare the sporty look for walking around town combined with sneakers or ballerinas, as Céline proposes. Finally, Louis Vuitton makes us dream with its leather biker jacket. We especially like the idea of wearing it with our favorite dress, for an evening look!

The Trench-coat

We like the leather trench coat for a centerpiece. It will add a touch of glamour to your look! In addition to having the style at the top, it will protect you from the rain, which appears in the spring from time to time.
Burberry and Hugo Boss both designed their leather trench coat for a more assertive look, using simple and minimal pieces. You have to keep it simple and elegant. We love the fun, eclectic and vibrant colors for the trench coats this spring.

Leather pants

Leather pants have been our favorites for a very long time! For an iconic style, we recommend larger sizes and custom finishes. It’s a silhouette that will always be in fashion. And let’s not forget that leather pants are very versatile! Armani offers an elegant and sexy look combined with high heels, perfect for a party. As for Celine, we find the sporty side, which we love so much! Wear colors like chocolate brown or khaki to brighten up the look.

Leather Sets

Who says you can’t wear a full leather look in the spring? Sets are one of the hottest styles of the past seasons, and with leather, you can’t resist! Chanel and Hermès, have both proposed a 100% leather look with a combination of jacket and biker shorts. Perfect for a walk or a night out! Celine delighted us with a sporty combination ideal for a fresh and chic look. The possibilities are endless with full leather looks!

Leather is ideal for the off-season, so we’re going to find a few looks to get you in our beloved stores.
