We’ve been saying it for a couple of seasons: the skinIn its mildest version, it has become the main starting point for all kinds of garments that were able to make a niche even in the spring collections. He street style has a long history of leather pieces that have invaded all the prescribers’ looks: we can also find a pleated skirt in this material, with an overshirt or pants, than with a dress completely made of leather. He format shelter it remains, however, the runway’s favorite tirade in the cold: there is no autumn winter 2020-2021 proposal that he has not surrendered to him, in all his versions. It is, however, its longest length repeated this fall: in pure style Matrix, the coat up to the knee, in leather (or its vegan leather side) and in black is one of the leitmotifs that we have seen in Versace, Alberta Ferretti, Loewe o Louis Vuitton.

The chromatic range of the most common shades of leather, from chocolate to the classic cognac, is a perfect blank canvas to get out of the black tonic that will color the season. An alternative that fits perfectly in the terracotta ranges that also prevail in the autumn color trends and that in turn serve other fashionable details. Because yes, the long fur coat can also include other trends such as the one mentioned patchwork, how do you Marni, or the fur effect on the hems, as they propose Prada The Louis Vuitton. One of the bet that does not fail is to opt for a version of the eternal trench coat in leather, in the style of Bottega Veneta or Alberta Ferretti, with a more vintage air.
Bottega Veneta, Marni, Coach and Saint Laurent opted for leather coats in brown tones for fall.
The proposals we saw during the Milan Fashion Week they put the accent of form especially in this type of coat. Even in slightly less visible color palettes. So much Ferragamo how Prada they included gray leather models in their respective collections with different results (gabardine type, patent effect…). Fendi, for its part, also opted for the trend we saw last spring of opting for leather garments in vibrant colors. In this case, he took the butter yellow, a pale yellow that was also a trend last season, to dye a pair of fur coats with designs in the antipodes: from utilitarian garments to crossed garments at chest height and marking silhouette thanks to the belt, another of the most repeated stylistic gestures for next fall. Coach, another of the firms that repeats this formula more times, also included in its collection long leather coats in shades such as oil blue what did we see Kaia Gerber on the runway, in contrast to the warmth of a pink knitted sweater.

Why invest in a leather or faux fur coat? Logic would say that due to its properties it is restricted to the coldest seasons, but trends are showing the opposite: it is a material that has a place in the middle of summer. Proposals on the catwalk apart, in blazer and overshirt format a niche has progressively been made, including that of celebrities. Kaia Gerber, for example, is one of his top regulars, but in her most vintage spirit. His is the illustrative example (if we needed one) that everything comes back, that leather garments were no exception, and that always you will end up finding treasures in your mother’s closet. After all, those Gerber blazers he wore them before Cindy Crawford in her looks from the 90s.
The fur coat is probably another of those treasures that we could find buried in the most hidden corner of the maternity wardrobe. Or the opposite will be the case in a few years, with the generations to come. This is a basic wardrobe staple that is highly likely to fit in with any style. Has the property to be trend right now and never go out of styleIn fact, few garments age as well as one made from leather. That celebrities look for theirs also in vintage and second-hand stores is the confirmation that this piece should have its own space between the hangers.
