SS21 Trend Report: Leather as a second skin

Updated: Oct 13

Leather was one of the most featured materials on Spring / Summer 21 shows.


Leather is multi-faceted... At Chanel, the look is rebellious, replacing the classic tweed. When for Isabel Marrant, leather symbolizes the audacity of the "it girl" who is free! Yes, in leather SHE CAN!

At Rick Owens, Louis Vuitton or Sacai, the leather is structured and rigid. It appears as a sophisticated armor protecting the woman from the harsh world, as carrying the aftereffects of a chaotic 2020.


Like a second skin, in 2021, the leather is a statement in a woman's wardrobe, claiming the right to be tenacious, daring, and elegant.
