    Bring it on; it's my favourite thing. Really cool to see it popping up in summer collections.

    I love it when leather is "dressed up". I think it's almost an undiscovered luxury fashion item in North America, because so many people here are stuck on the idea that it's a fetish thing or for bikers. The once-risky leather jacket is mainstream now, but is still cool. I'm hoping to see the day when leather pants and skirts will be seen as cool, but acceptable, rather than a fashion crime or a statement of sexual preference.

    I'm doing my part: I'm wearing my Ari Soffer leather pants right now at my office. Sure, it's not everyone's cup of tea, but pffft...I don't care :smile:

    +1 i love it!
    YSL the 4th pic is OOOH MY!!!!!

    what do you think what is more trendy now - to wear thin leather or really thick (like rockers do)?
    i don't like too thin leather. it seems like it's not real. i like when it's thick but not too much! :smile:
    what do you think about leather dresses? mmm?

    p.s. sorry for my poor english

    I used to think that all really high quality leather was lambskin or kidskin, and I certainly love both. But, the problem with leather that's so light and soft is damage. In fact, I've scratched lambskin pants simply by sitting on a rough wooden chair.

    However, I recenlty bought a pair of calfskin leather pants made by Ari Soffer, who is based in LA and makes *very* high-end custom clothing and jewlery. Now, I can see that mid-weight [semi-thick] leather can be just as luxurious as lambskin, perhaps even moreso. The only problem is that it's extremely expensive. Given a choice, I prefer the calfskin leather because it's thick enought to withstand regular wearing without having to worry that sitting on a chair will scratch them :smile:

    I LOVE the leather skirt used in the Ann Demeulemeester show! It would look great with black tights underneath! Does anybody know where you can purchase a clone... for cheaper? :brows:

    Leather for this winter sounds really good, with some chunky knits. I'm annoyed that I passed on a leather skirt that was on sale at H&m the other day.

    I loved the camel leather pieces at Céline.. makes me wish I had bought the boxy, faux-leather top that H&M had a couple seasons ago. duh.
    Anyway, this looks like a lovely trend to starting warming up for the new season in late winter and spring, otherwise.. unless you spend your summers in siberia, I doubt it's very comfortable. :ninja:

    the celine pieces are so great :heart:

    Well, talking about leather, you can maybe buy some fake that looks real :P It isn't as expensive and well, it looks just the same, except you don't smell like it... Some leathers stink :P
