Things To Love From the RTW A/W 2008: Leather

While grey is undoubtedly key colour this season, it looks like we’ll be dunning the transparent shades for another season or two. Neutrals were everywhere on the runways for A/W 2008.

But even more exciting than milky shades is the cool leather that's jumping back into the lime light.... Louis Vuitton featured a haematite biker girl jacket that was absolutely awesome (complete with matching leather pants if you want to do the full monty!). We also loved this pale grey knee length leather skirt which looked like it could well and truly become The Purchase of the Season. At Prada we saw mustard coloured leather, both coats, and suits (perhaps a bit too much, not sure if we liked it all). Burberry Prorsum sent out a parkas in soft, bottle-green leather - how cool and very futuristic! But out of all the leather our absolute favourite was this c
ropped Hermes riding jacket.

Hi Bronwen, I know, it looks awesome doesn't it...

Hi Tania, yes, I don't think I'll be buying it just yet;) but it's a gorgeous piece of clothing to dream of...
