With the sun lower in the sky and crisp air hinting at cooler weather, I decided to check out this season's leather jackets. It is always fun to see how the style and color trend boards translate into the products we see at retail.
One trend in leather goods that I find especially appealing is fine leather that shows off its authentic, low tech origins and imperfections. While the processes may be high tech the drape, hand and colors are natural. Rich coffee, soft chocoloate brown, warm caramel, and toasty tan are the mouth-watering colors for this trend.
The Autumn/Winter forecast from Pittard's leather described this trend, "A new thinking mans luxury is evolving and has many layers. Authenticity is the overriding factor. The dictionary definition of the word is ‘Undisputed origin, genuine, reliable or trustworthy’. Artisan features, typical leathery grains and colours will be important."
