Chilly weather is officially upon us, and what better way to ease ourselves into autumn than with the lush leather looks that peppered the runways? While the sumptuous skin—whether real or faux—is a no-brainer when the temperature drops, this season it has taken a ladylike silhouette with a slight vampy kick in the form of slim pencil skirts and city-ready panelling details. This season the queen of prints, Mary Katrantzou, marched out slick, almost rubber-like etched black leather, while the leathers were croc-embossed or patent at Louis Vuitton and Mugler respectively. For the office, opt for a longer length (knee or midi) in a conservative silhouette. Try a rich autumn hue (like oxblood!) or edgy details like laser-cut details.
