Leather is back with a vengeance for AW17, and you'll find it in every possible form. From the traditional, like handbags, jackets and boots, to the unexpected, such as skirts, hats and dresses, this luxury fabric has adorned catwalks from Louis Vuitton to Balenciaga, who adopted a motor racing aesthetic. Biker jackets not your thing? Leather comes in all textures this season, from the classic matte to the high shine vinyl. Score style points with extra details such as snakeskin prints and shearling trim.
