It’s official. The shiny binding sheen of leather? The reign is over. Well except for jackets tres chic a v James dean-esque
Sorry Catwoman but you are so last season! This season, next season, the foreseeable future—it’s all about that 70’s hippie chic that is suede. We love the buttery supple material which is we must say impractical in the rain, but has an appeal that’s oh so sensual! It’s just in time for the spring runways trends of he 70’s groovy baby looks for SS15. On nearly every catwalk we where swimming in a sea of suede from the likes of Michael Kors (Yeah Michael!) Jason Wu and especially Gucci who’s show was suede-a-licious!
The suede is perfect to accent and layer with woollens in the winter but also light enough to wear as a top on its own so it’s non seasonal in the sense you can wear it any time.
If you’re not sure you can pull it off check out the ultimate ladies from the 70’s like Joni Mitchell and Stevie Nicks the queens of cool.
