Trend: Fur and Leather - The two key materials for Autumn/Winter 2013/14

Fashion is made from eternal returning trends such as materials. For Autumn/Winter, a look completely in leather makes a return, however it’s done more delicately.Exit the biker style, and welcome "jolies madames"; leather weakens, becomes thin and more flexible and can be worn from head to toe, even in skirt suits, mixing more easily with other materials.
Just like leather, fur has never been so present, allowing a level of fantasy. Coats still as luxurious are proposed in a variety colours, flecked, in zebra-print, military or striped ... You can even opt to just have fur sleeves.
Alexander Wang has thought of revamping the arms as some jackets play the card of voluptuous fur sleeves. Finally, the new idea is to have the choice of a basic piece in fur, why not choose a sweatshirt or jumper, skirt or even a dress, at least you can be certain you’ll stay warm all day…

Derek Lam:
Well I think that we’ve seen so much leather but I feel that it needed to be warmed-up and broken, all the patch-working to create service interest, with a lot of the fabrics it was kind of creating our own fabrics through these combinations.

Karl Lagerfeld :
Fur is everywhere, it’s on bracelets, it’s on glasses, it’s on shoes, in tailoring, and you know we use this fabric which is very precious, as though we used semi-precious stones; it’s very flattering.
