These two pieces are made in the same very lightweight espresso lambskin that this top and this skirt were made in.
The client liked the skins so much that I purchased all that were available for her – I think there is one skin left, enough for a hat maybe? With the scraps I may be able to stretch the remainder into a soft shopping bag for her.
Both these pieces are intended to be worn almost year round, and since my client splits her time between NYC and San Francisco so she’ll get even more wear in SF’s more temperate climate. Really, with the exception of NYC’s hot sticky and sadly longer summers, these will be wearable the rest of the year.
The leather jumper over a t-shirt or a modest blouse is two very different looks – over a turtleneck or sweater you have another. You could swap it out and wear a sweater over it. Same with the paperweight leather shorts- barelegged or with opaque tights, T-shirt or sweater. So much you can do with leather when it’s thought out.
This is the essence of sustainability.
Whether it’s a statement piece like this jacket or more classic pieces with an edge, like this leather jumper and shorts. Pieces you can wear again and again, because they are meaningful to you, regardless of this weeks “trend”. Any garment that you will come back to again and again, because it gives you joy, and makes you really feel good. Pieces that are made with care and meant to last. Slow Fashion. It’s time has come.
