Leather & Pleather
Doubling up on leather, pleather and all things in between is no mean feat. But at this time of year, it sometimes feels like the ultimate option when it comes to shielding yourself from those icy winds. And for all my talk about being anti-tights, when you find a skirt this good when it’s this cold, they really are the only option….
If double denim is the Canadian tuxedo then what can we call double-leather? Or if you’re being picky quadruple leather…? I have no idea, but under the right circumstances I feel like it’s doable. Whereas leather trousers and a leather biker feels just too much in every sense, when one bits patent and the others matte and lined with shearling and brown cuffs, I’m hoping I can just about get away with piling on every tough surface in my wardrobe.
