Biker jackets, dresses and trousers so skin-tight they had us grimacing with fear, there is no denying that leather was huge news in winter 09. And while many designers have chosen to stick with the skin thing for spring, it seems leather has been put on the the back burner with suede set to enjoy it’s time in the sun. At Burberry Christopher Bailey made use of the tactile fabric to update the brand’s classic trench coat while fellow Brit brand Mulberry unveiled dusky-pink cropped-jackets. A huge hit on the New York runway Derek Lam went for tassle-detail suede jackets and skirts while celeb favourite Tibi used suede to create nude coloured dresses and accessories. Always keen to celebrate the key catwalk looks, Oasis’s nod to this season’s suede is a unique and wearable collection of key pieces in the fabric. From a new take on the legendary biker jacket- in suede of course- to a wild west inspired tassle detail dress that’s utterly in line with the season’s new desert-inspired look, there’s sure to be a suede piece that appeals to everyone.
Looking at the pictures I just thought they looked like Pocahontas meets Alison Mosshart.
