With your hungry-eyed smile
In that smooth northern style
A new religion that’ll bring me to my knees
Black leather, if you please!
by Alannah Myles
‘Nothing like it, really. Always in style. Works in all kinds of weather. Dresses way up or way the hell down. Can be patrician or punk, lady or lioness. Innately suggestive and powerful. Wears forever if you take a little care. Whether a detail or the whole enchilada- cool.
For stealth missions like securing venture capital, partnership or Christmas in Paris. Beautifully constructed modern minimalist. Futuristic meets Medieval armor. Black wrapped, leather trimmed bodice. Viscose/ Elastane dress with 100% Calf leather. Fully lined. $969.00
Throw it on with anything, under anything for a touch of tough. Mix it up- add a chiffon scarf, red lips, and pearls; biker boots and a pleated skirt; herringbone pants and a Chanel jacket. The look of luxe without the cost. Crop top tee in 100% leather. Unlined. What do you expect for $84.00?!
Left: Sportmax Rosetta Skirt- The go-to skirt with a difference. Slim, knee-length, leather pencil-skirt with a black denim waist-band. Tuck in a pretty blouse or fitted sweater. Top button and zipped front fastening, slanted side pockets and belt-loops with a pleated snail back. Fully lined. Wear with soaring heels. On sale $419.00
Right: McQ by Alexander McQueen A-Line Full Skirt-Nothing like yards of the softest leather to stage whisper riche. A more feminine shape than most leather treatments, this is great for a girly girl and/or retro combinations. Flats or kitten heels will be as appropriate as heels in this one. Swingy and young. Slightly high rise waist, side zipper, big box pleats. Fully lined. $834.00
Left: Veda Max Leather Jacket-Enormous, face framing lapel makes this jacket not just another Biker. Proportions matter. Wear this with a midi skirt (or pants) rather than a mini. Too many short visual areas chop up the body making it look clumsy. Long sleeve cropped leather with zipper front closure. Knit sleeve inserts. Fully lined $891.00
Right: Rag & Bone Pascal Jacket- Intriguing combo of leather and wool makes this tailored jacket finished but casual. Office or play. Suited or jeaned. With a crew, turtleneck, or big extending collar. Kind of the boyfriend sweater plus. Collarless, leather front with contrasting back, sleeves, and welt pockets. V-neck, single button cuffs, single button at front with bound buttonhole. Fully lined. $795.00
Left: Jamin Premium Buffalo Black Leather Pants (look like graphite in color)-Great country casuals. Ready for cold and bad weather layering; horse or motorcycle rides. Sturdy, jean-type pants with five pocket styling, zip fly, soft nylon lining, wide belt loops. On sale $84.00
Right: Cargo Style Pocket Pants- Deep black. Party the night away with heels and an elaborate blouse; spend the day at galleries with an oversized cashmere sweater; boot up and attend the film festival. High waistline, bar and hook fastening, multiple pockets, belt loops. On sale $222.00
Extremely unique leather and wool combo makes this piece a real fashion statement. A marriage of kicky and traditional. Definitely original. Sewn-in leather vest tops this zippered tailcoat with wool underlining that falls from beneath the classic silhouette. Copper hardware. Single slit back. $1595.00
I do have tattoos, and I do wear leather, but there are other sides of me, that my films express. Angelina Jolie
