The new autumn and winter collection designs will be available from
September. Exciting and flattering styling is a definite, together with
streamline cuts and an array of vintage themed colours. Vegetable dyes
are big on the leather fashion scene this year in subdued shades of
black, brown, tan and timber. The natural source of vegetable dyes
delivers a soft and shear colour that is more versatile for all seasons
and also ideally suited for casual and smart casual wear. The regular
block colour dyes deliver very vibrant colours without intensity and
depth variation, unlike vegetable dyes and also aniline leathers. The
staple full solid colour finished could be described as better suited
for smarter wear.

another comeback this century.
Fur is big on the scene for cross a lot of the very prominet catwalk
designers for autumn (fall) 201. It is so big this year that it runs the
collections for men as well as the women. This will divide us between
those that will and wont wear fur, there is always the option of
synthetic fur. Raw and primitive pelt styles are prevalent as well as
the elegant and classic designs adorned in the 50's, 60's and 70's. Mix
of letaher and fur garments is taking hold within new designs to give a
greater level of practical use for reagular or everyday wear.
Toscana lambskins are a great alternative to fur as they offer the
beautifully long thick hair fur look but are from an acceptable farmed
source of stock. The outer skin of a Tosana garment is typically a very
soft nubuck (bit like extra soft and supple suede).
