From dresses and trench coats, to bags and boots, suede reigns high this season. Lighter, more elegant and more subtle than the pervasive leather, it is a rich as well as a sensual and feminine fabric, and it is a great way to make the transition from winter to spring. What I liked the most about the myriad of interpretations on the runway (from Loewe’s honey-toned beautiful long trench and patchwork totes, to Altuzarra’s caramel sheath dresses and shirts, and Jason Wu’s wrap coats and thigh-high slit dresses in shades of green) were the clean, modern, structured silhouettes, which steer away from the overly retro, 70’s style the look is often associated with. A quiet kind of luxury.
The sleek suede shirt is the most
unexpected and appealing approach.
