Leather is a popular fabric in both the Fall 2012 and Spring 2013 collections. Two years ago, Celine was one of the designers that pioneered the leather trend. Today, we are seeing leather interpreted in a new fresh way. Leather is now lightweight and very soft. Designers are using different techniques such as laser cutting, basket weaving and pleating. Thakoon is showing leather in amazing colors such as red, orange and purple.
