Beyond Black:

why we’re coveting coloured leather

Let’s be clear: there’s no new black.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t cheat on it occasionally with a splash of colour, now, does it?

There’s room in our wardrobes for everyone…

Think of black as your never-fail staple and experiment with rich hues when you feel like donning something more daring.

The beauty of jewel-toned leather shines between seasons – think autumnal Malbec, trans-seasonal suede green and opulent barren brown.

Shades like these add depth to an all-black ensemble – simply team with a berry lip.

 50 Shades…

White and moon grey leathers lift an outfit and give your look an ice-cold edge.

Throw our Nolita Drape Vest in chalk white or Park Slope Quilted Jacket in desert moon grey leather over a springtime outfit that black would weigh down, or wear with chambray, silk shirts and stripes.

When you want to wear leather without drawing attention to its tough biker origins, this is where to turn.

In summer, neutral colours come into their own, from the warm, honeyed tones of hazelnut leather to sun-kissed sand.

In caramel, butterscotch and latte shades, leather becomes a breezy summer basic: swap out your denim for a sand-hued, paper-thin leather mini or cheeky fringed shorts.

The palette pairs perfectly with the season’s bohemian broderie anglaise and off-the-shoulder tops. Hazelnut and tan leathers are made for melding with florals: the buttery finish anchors a floaty fabric and gives a look depth.
